Zoria: Age of Shattering Prologue is a chance to try out a new in-development party-based tactical RPG, as it's out now with Linux support.
With a mix of action-adventure exploration, party management and turn-based battles where positioning is key it's quite satisfying. While the battles are turn-based, they take place directly on the map exactly where you are. Not only that, it's not tile based either. Instead you get freedom of positioning based on each character's action points. It has a feel quite like Divinity: Original Sin.
With the current content you can play it through likely in 3-4 hours, to get a taste. Have a look at the new launch trailer below:
• Explore a rich, immersive and diverse world: beautifully crafted environments, featuring dense forests, haunting dungeons, golden deserts and many more.
• An epic story driving your experience, with rich and expansive lore. Discover the hidden tales and stories that live on through the people of Zoria and your own companions;
• A unique experience follow the events that lead to the player taking charge of the Outpost;
Try out Zoria: Age of Shattering Prologue on Steam now. If you do give it a go, let your fellow GOL readers know what you think about it in the comments. The full game is due out sometime this Autumn.
