It's been announced by Gato Salvaje Studio that The Waylanders delay has pushed back their Celtic RPG title until Fall 2021. On the bright side, the announcement is accompanied by a new The Waylanders roadmap and patch. The new patch brings full controller support, difficulty options, and improvements to the UI and combat. There are also lightning improvements in "many scenarios and cutscenes", along with new NPC combat barks.
“We got a little quiet during development over the Spring and I’d like to apologize to the community for that” said Gato Salvaje Co-Founder Fernando Prieto “We’ve been hard at work improving The Waylanders content that players have access to using community feedback and building the next portion of the story. You’ll be hearing more from us on social media and in our Discord in the coming months.”
“Development during Covid has been very challenging, an issue many indie developers have been experiencing over the past year.” continued Prieto “We’ve had to revamp many of our processes and change up how we work with people outside of the studio, such as our voice actors. We’ve solved many of these challenges and we feel confident that RPG fans will see the full version of The Waylanders released this Fall.”
As for what fans can expect this summer, there will be more pets added for the Ranger class, an improved tutorial system, and a romance system patched into the game. Other cool tidbits include camera system improvements, better enemy distribution, and target selection highlighting. Check out the full Waylanders roadmap here.
