Spanish-based developer Gato Studio revealed Celtic Age-themed regions featured in The Waylanders. The title already tells "the story of an adventurer untethered bytime and fate who travels between a mythological Celtic age." The developer draws inspiration from the likes of Pillars of Eternity and Dragon Age: Inquisition, and it shows in the art style and gameplay mechanics revealed so far.
The Waylanders' events take place in the Celtic region of Kaltia, split into seven smaller cities, each with its own distinctive culture and residents. The cities of Brigantia, Dumbriga, Mourian Underworld, Werewolf Camp, Dunnios, Aunes, and Medhu's Peak. The regions offer the players a diverse and enormous world to explore, featuring everything from gigantic necropolis and underground networks to camps full of werewolves and charming seaside towns. The development team shared a couple of screenshots on how they look like, alongside other character and gameplay snippets to keep the fans on edge.
The developer shared a significant addition to their development team, as Gavin Jurgens-Fyhrie joined the team as Project Consultant. He is known for his prior work on Baldur’s Gate 3, Wasteland 3, Diablo 3 (and expansion Reaper of Souls), and perhaps most notably, Horizon Zero Dawn. His involvement with the title will definitely leverage the quality of the content featured in The Waylanders.
