Arcadian Atlas has to be on the radar of any tactical-RPG fan from the late 90s and early 2000s. Inspired by classics such as Tactics Orge and Final Fantasy Tactics, Arcadian Atlas has always looked good on paper since its Kickstarter a few years ago, but as we know, on-paper doesn’t always translate to actual success, especially in the TRPG world. Fortunately, Arcadian Atlas appears to be delivering on its promises and has continued to look impressive as more content is released. At the Awesome Indies showcase at Gamescom 2021, Arcadian Atlas released a new trailer (watch here) that stepped up the intrigue on two of the critical portions of any good TRPG: the classes and the story.
We got a taste of Arcadian Atlas’ mature story. As you can see in the picture above, the game isn’t going to pull any punches when it comes to murder and political drama. There was also a look at eight of the twelve+ classes that are planned for Arcadian Atlas and they all look wonderful and distinct from each other. It should be a blast putting together a strategic force comprised of very different combat styles.
The only sad part is that we’ll need to wait until 2022 for the full release, and as of right now, it’s only planned to release on PC.
