CRPG The Waylanders fully releases after one and a half years in Early Access. The game sees players travelling with up to nine party members as they switch between Celtic and medieval time periods. Players can choose from one of six base classes, with each base class having access to three advanced classes. The Celtic era sees players dealing with a tapestry of cultures and races as magic remains strong, while the medieval era has homogenised with the spread of religion and slow fade of magic.
