The Lamplighters League Announced
Publisher Paradox Interactive and developer Harebrained Schemes have announced The Lamplighters League and the Tower at the End of the World. The game is a pulp adventure set in an alternate 1930s featuring real-time infiltration and turn-based combat. It is planned to release later this year for PC and Xbox Series X|S.
The Lamplighters League sees players controlling a ragtag group of misfits seeking to prevent a tyranical cult called the Banished Court from attaining world domination. Players manage their team and their fight against the Banished Court at a global level, recruiting new allies before the Banished Court catches them and sending them out on missions across a variety of locations. Each mission grants new resources and potential abilities for team members. Players can survey each battlefield in real-time before combat, potentially sneaking up and taking out enemies as well as putting themselves in advantageous positions before the fight breaks out.
