Dreadlands

Blackfox Studios have released a new update for their turn-based tactics game Dreadlands, adding two new support classes.

The Tribe-Kin Mushromancer, and the Scrappers Engineer. The Mushromancer can use spores from different species of mushrooms to poison enemies or heal allies, while the Engineer can deploy turrets and repair allied units. The update also includes 13 new gang logos created by the game’s community.

You can read more about the update here and can find a rundown of the game (via Steam) below:


Welcome to the vivid, vibrant, and violent post-apocalypse. The Dreadlands await.

Dreadlands is a shared world, turn-based tactical, skirmish game set in an unforgiving environment where life and death revolves around the constant struggle for Glow, a resource as valuable as it’s enigmatic.

Explore the wondrously diverse regions of the Dreadlands, ovecoming the wealth of challenges provided by the treacherous terrain, voracious Beastlife and trigger happy locals.

GANG FACTIONS
Create your gang from any of the rival factions inhabiting Dreadlands. Two factions will be available at Early Access Launch, The Scrappers and the Tribe-kin, and will soon be joined by a third faction, the Skarbacks.

All playable Gang Factions have their own background campaign. The storyline will introduce the player to the faction’s worldview, mentality, culture and of course, current problems that have to be dealt with.

Once the Gang Faction campaign is completed, the Main Story campaign will be unlocked. The Main Campaing will thrust the player deeper into the lore, intrigue and many entities vying for power, or merely survival, in the Dreadlands.

TACTICAL COMBAT

Freely move, attack and use abilities any way you want. Move and shoot? Shoot and move? Shoot twice? It’s up to you to decide how to best use your Action Points!

Morale system
Engage in the tug-of-war Morale system that allows you to break the hearts & minds of your enemies. In the Dreadlands there is more to battle than just killing!

XP challenges system

Tactics card system

EXPLORE DREADLANDS
Exploring the Dreadlands will be a diverse and dangerous trek. The region resembles a patchwork of constracting biomes, a strange brew definitely not concocted through the methodical work of mother nature.

There’s an abundance of jaw-dropping sights to see and bothersome things to kill, as you travel across grasslands, lush swamp-jungle hybrids, mountains, desert plains and contaminated zones of utter devastation.

The Dreadlands is notorious as a unique and wondrously weird place, which is quite a feat, considering the post-apocalyptic world is no stranger to otherworldly strangeness.


Dreadlands is in Early Access for Windows PC via Steam.
