“Combines the best of MOBA and Action Hack & Slash RPGs”
We’ve got a couple of free-to-play releases arriving on Xbox next week, with one of them being Ubisoft’s Trackmania, and the other being the action-packed Warlander, with the latter coming to Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S (and PS5).
Warlander, which first launched on PC back in January, is described as “combining the best of MOBA and Action Hack & Slash RPGs”, featuring “intense competitive skirmishes and epic castle siege warfare with up to 100 players”.
Here’s a bit more about it:
“Across its 2 Army Battle & 5 Army Battle game modes, Warlander combines the tactical team-fighting of a modern-day MOBA, the knock-out style gameplay of a Battle Royale, a smooth blend of 3rd person hack-and-slash and ranged combat, and a touch of 4X-inspired strategic diplomacy – all within large scale battles of up to 100 players.”
The game only has a “Mixed” rating on Steam based on over 6000 reviews, although quite a lot of the negative feedback seems to be due to the Anti-Cheat system on PC, which shouldn’t affect console players. A nice bonus with Xbox is that cross-play will be supported across all platforms, so you’ll be able to compete with PC users as well.
Look out for Warlander’s free release on Xbox next week – the launch date is Tuesday, May 16th.
“Warlander is an action-packed, third-person, online-multiplayer game, with a unique style that mashes a Medieval-inspired setting, Fantastical items and abilities…and…EVEN POWERFUL ROBOTS!
Featuring intense competitive skirmishes and epic castle siege warfare with up to 100 players, you must use the almighty powers of god-like Warriors, Clerics, and Mages, as well as siege weapons and cataclysmic spells to control the battlefield.”
