The Waylanders Introduces Animal Companions
Gato Salvaje Studio provided some additional details on its upcoming tile The Waylanders, specifically on the animal companions players can have in the game. These companions are available to those players with the Ranger class, with twelve to choose from. The companion will level up alongside the player, and each has its own set of abilities and can be instructed like a regular party member. Some may be specific to particular races and advanced classes but the full set is as follows:
- Wild Boar
In addition, certain magic-based classes will have access to summoned creatures, such as a healing spirit, while the goblin party member Trasté has wisps that act as minions. His Friends! ability causes wisps to appear every few seconds to use as ammunition for other abilities or to explode and damage a nearby target.
The Waylanders sees players joining up with nine party members who travel with them as they switch between Celtic and medieval time periods. The game is being developed for PC and is set to be released on Steam Early Access in summer 2020, having underwent a successful Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign in late 2018.
