Here we go with getting whisked back to the 1930s to join The Lamplighters League with a whole new experience in the mix. This is not only the name of the heroic team we will be joining, but the upcoming title from Harebrained Schemes and Paradox Interactive. All for the PC and Xbox Series X|S sometime in 2023. At least when we look at the basics we have for The Lamplighters League announcement and the basics we have in terms of gameplay. If you are looking for a new turn-based tactical title in the mix of all of the other titles we will have out there when it does finally launch. If it does launch around the time when so many other games usually launch in the year.
As you will be able to see a bit in the announcement and gameplay videos we have for The Lamplighters League, we are getting another small turn-based title that will have us trying to save the world from a new cult in an alternate 1930s setting. Here, we will have small teams that will be diving into tombs and various other pulp-themed settings as we take aim and use the environment to our advantage. All so we can thwart these plans with our cast of personalities with special abilities. It is hard to say how many of those we are going to get in The Lamplighters League, but it is a highlight when not planning how we are going to tackle missions. Also, something that we will be able to alter before the turn-based part comes up, as we have seen in many of the recent titles like this one. It is a good move so we do not always have to go in blasting all the time. Have a look and see what is now on the books for us all.
The Lamplighters League — Announcement
Sneak, steal, and shoot your way through a world of pulp adventure in The Lamplighters League! Globetrot across a variety of exciting locales around the world and outwit your enemies in strategic turn-based combat - and, if you play your cards right, you might just save the world.
Harebrained Schemes, the creators of The Shadowrun Trilogy and BATTLETECH, bring you an all-new world set in an alternate 1930s, where a tyrannical cult called the Banished Court stands on the cusp of world domination. For millennia, all that stood between this sinister cabal and their plans was a band of heroic scholars known as The Lamplighters League.
Unfortunately, the best of the best are all gone, so now it's up to the best of the worst.
Recruit a team of misfits and scoundrels with unique abilities and unforgettable personalities, and chase the Banished Court to the ends of the earth in a mix of real-time infiltration, turn-based tactical combat, and a character-driven story of adventure and intrigue.
The Lamplighters League — Gameplay
Join Harebrained Schemes in this first look at The Lamplighters League, an original pulp adventure set in an alternate 1930s that mixes real-time infiltration, turn-based tactical combat, and managing a growing team of misfits. The Lamplighters League will launch for PC and Xbox Series X and S consoles in 2023.
How diverse of a cast of characters do you think we are going to get here in The Lamplighters League or will it be more of the same tropes we see in these games? Can we beat the whole game by doing all of the perfect prep work or will there be specific sections that we will just be thrown into? Will this be out before the normal holiday rush of games or will it sadly get lost in the mix of the massive titles that get all the marketing? Head down to the comments to talk about all of this and keep that discussion flowing. Things have only started for The Lamplighters League, so do expect there to be a whole lot more along the way. Please keep checking back for all of those updates and many, many more as we head on to the future for all of these things.
