Battle Brothers hits PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this January

Tech Highlights:

  • Battle Brothers is a turn-based strategy RPG mix which has you leading a mercenary company in a gritty, low-power, medieval fantasy world. You decide where to go, whom to hire or to fight, what contracts to take and how to train and equip your men in a procedurally generated open world campaign. The game consists of a strategic worldmap and a tactical combat layer. On the worldmap you can freely travel in order to take contracts that earn you good coin, find places worth looting, enemies worth pursuing or towns to resupply and hire men at. This is also where you manage, level up and equip your Battle Brothers. Once you engage a hostile party the game will switch to a tactical map where the actual fighting takes place as detailed turn-based combat.

  • Battle Brothers is coming to Xbox and PlayStation next month, according to Ukiyo Publishing and Overhype Studios. The PC version has been praised for its handling of RPG components in a turn-based strategic system, and with the game approaching its five-year anniversary, it’s about time it made its way to consoles. The official release date is January 13th, and there will be a 20% discount when it goes on sale.

Manage a medieval mercenary company in a procedurally generated open world.

Permadeath. All characters that die in combat will stay dead – unless they return as the undead.

Fight complex turn-based tactical battles with historical equipment and brutal injuries.

All characters come with their own background stories and traits.

Character development without a restrictive class-system. Gain XP in battle to level up your characters and acquire powerful perks.

Different weapons grant unique skills: split shields with axes, stun enemies with maces, form a spearwall with spears or crush armor with a warhammer.

Diverse enemy roster. All enemies have unique equipment, skills and AI behavior. A dynamic event system with atmospheric encounters and tough decisions outside of combat.

Three late game crises – a war between noble houses, a greenskin invasion and an undead scourge –, plus one included in the DLC ‘Blazing Deserts’, add a looming threat. Two full hours of orchestral soundtrack.

Three DLCs that add even more depth to the game: origins for your company, new enemies, locations, cities, contracts.
