Turn-based RPGs do not seem to be all the rage anymore with many being overlooked or thrown into an action setting for some reason. This is why I am glad to hear about Disciples: Liberation getting the announcement here that is aiming to go down that path again and maybe bring it all back into a modern gaming world. That does require Frima Studios and Kalypso to make sure it all flows out there extremely well, but that does not mean we are not going to see another attempt at it. Something we should see when Disciples: Liberation launches this year on the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC. As long as they do a great job and are not hit with any hardships along the way, that is.
In Disciples: Liberation, it looks like we will be facing off with some horrible evils out there to help write a new chapter in the history of Nevendaar. They are boasting that we could be seeing about 80-hours of gameplay in the single-player portion with four different classes to play with. All while driving our own destiny through our choices and actions and the command of 50+ units out there too. It does sound like it will be a title that is chalked full of all kinds of fun and some deeper darkness based on what we have to see here with the announcement for Disciples: Liberation. Have a look and then get ready to wait until we see some new gameplay flow out of the pre-alpha that they are looking to give players a chance to partake in.
