Turn-based tactical RPG 'Vigilantes' to leave Early Access on Thursday

Posted by , | Views: 2,478

After being in Early Access for around a year, Timeslip Softworks have announced that their turn-based tactical RPG Vigilantes will release in full this week. Thursday, October 4th is the date and they recently released an update to add in some of the final elements of the game with update 30.

Here's what the developer says about it:

Vigilantes is a combat focused, turn-based tactical RPG set in the declining, crime riddled city of Reiker. The game offers hardcore squad-level combat in a gritty neo-noir setting, intel gathering through surveillance and interrogation, a detailed character system, base building, crafting, and much more.

It had been quite a while since I tested it, with me not being too impressed with the original Early Access release which had too many issues to make the game enjoyable. Thankfully, testing out the latest build has shown how far the game has come, as expected from a game nearing release it's quite polished now. None of the issues I had before are present, so that's good!

Feature highlight:

  • Party-Based Tactical Combat System, including lethal and non-lethal attacks, powerful perk-based activated abilities, attacks of opportunity, cover, aimed and special attacks.
  • Deep Character System: build the ultimate crime-fighting team using the UPLIFT system which comprises 6 stats, 9 skills and allows for a variety of viable builds. Further customise your characters with over 60 perks.
  • Gather Intel: Run surveillance and interrogate defeated enemies to locate each gang's leadership and facilities.
  • Adversary System: If an enemy manages to flee, they will become more powerful and you will have to face them again later. Take them down quick!
  • Reactive AI: An enemy that reacts to your actions, by setting up ambushes, and is responsible for recruitment, building facilities, improving gang equipment and training.

Find it on Steam.

I haven´t tried playing this since the early days of early access either. I´ll give it a go as soon as it´s released but then I think it´ll have to join the backlog, since I have at least 2 and maybe more titles that I want to play through first.

The concept does sound interesting though, a deadly (I assume) "Batman character" that fights in turnbased combat.

If you understand french, i'm doing a "kind of" Let's Play. Not a full game, just some parts from time to time.

This is the playlist with 3 episodes so far. Team at level 1 (start), at level 2, at level 12 :

I'm now at level 16 i think, and still enjoy the game a lot.

I've been looking forward to the final release of this game for so long now that I don't entirely remember what it's even about. Vigilantes, apparently. Still, looking forward to this one coming out of Early access at last. Gonna kill me some criminals.
