Plaid Hat Games, the award-winning studio behind renowned titles like “Forgotten Waters” and “Dead of Winter,” has officially announced the upcoming release of “Freelancers: A Crossroads Game.” Slated for release on August 3, 2023, the new game is currently available for pre-order.
“Freelancers: A Crossroads Game” takes an intriguing twist on the traditional fantasy role-playing genre. Set in a post-humanity world littered with refuse and inhabited by unsightly creatures, players take on the role of freelancers. These resilient characters are tasked with delving into ruins, braving wilderness, and exterminating monstrous hordes in order to accumulate loot and live to tell the tale.
The game uniquely condenses the immersive experience of a full-length RPG campaign into a single session of chaotic fun. Players will create their unique characters, roll uniquely designed dice, and navigate through a world teeming with magic, monsters, and murder.
One of the stand-out features of “Freelancers: A Crossroads Game” is the absence of a need for a game master. Instead, a companion app facilitates the storytelling, offering a fully-voiced, industry-leading audio experience. The app guides players through hundreds of branching paths in five replayable campaigns.
The game encourages creativity with its versatile character-building system, allowing players to mix and match from a myriad of species and jobs to craft their unique avatar. With simple rules and no preparation required, “Freelancers: A Crossroads Game” promises a pick-up-and-play experience for low-commitment fun.
“Freelancers: A Crossroads Game” continues Plaid Hat Games’ tradition of innovating and expanding upon the gaming landscape. Its focus on providing an intense, engaging, yet easily accessible RPG experience is likely to captivate fans of fantasy games and the wider gaming community. With its pre-order phase already open, gaming enthusiasts are invited to secure their copy ahead of the official release this August.
