New The Waylanders Screenshots, Video Reveal the Celtic Age

The Waylanders Update Roadmap

Gato Studio has released a brand new trailer video of their upcoming RPG The Waylanders that showcases some of the Celtic Age locations featured in the game. The game is centered around the story of a Traveller that is untethered by time and fate and travels between a mythological Celtic age and the stone and mortar construction of the Medieval era.

The land has been overtaken by a magickal corruption and the kingdom is now divided into multiple factions all trying to take control of the throne. The Waylanders was previously backed successfully on Kickstarter and now the developer is about to release the game in Early Access of Steam. The first build of the game will allow fantasy RPG fans to explore the first age of this journey.

The areas featured in the new area include diverse scenery including coastal villages and towering forests to mystical regions such as underground cities, werewolves’ camps, and ancient necropolis. You start your journey in the Celtic region of Kaltia which is now known as Galicia in Northwestern Spain. The story of the game is heavily inspired by the history and mythology of the time. We have detailed some of the locations further below.

Check out some of the locations featured in the new video below. These are some of the locations that you will explore as part of your journey.

Brigantia

The Waylanders Celtic Age

The capital of these lands is Brigantia, a bustling coastal city, and home to King Ith and his court. As the largest city of all Kaltia, Brigantia is the most densely populated and is defended by a nearby hillfort. Humans from neighboring nationalities pass through, making it a major center of trade and commerce.

As a trading hub and a culture known for its openness, Brigantia reflects humanity’s beautiful diversity. You will meet human characters in the game who represent many nationalities, sexualities, ethnicities, and beliefs. Their personalities and ethics will be fiercely individual but always informed by their personal histories and cultural identities, just as with humans in our world.

The Tower, a nearby ancient lighthouse, guides sailors from distant lands to port and is known as a beacon for the ancient races. Its flame is a symbol of the city as much as it is a useful landmark for travelers.

Dumbriga

Dumbriga is a smaller city to the south of Brigantia. The home of the University, Druids from all over Kaltia come here to study and perfect their magickal crafts.

At the center of town, a mountain commonly called The Olympus of the Celts is said to house several elder gods, and is off-limits to all but the most advanced Druids.

Mourin Underworld

The Mourian Underworld is a vast underground network of cities and towns that spans throughout Kaltia. Mourian architecture is elegant and lavishly decorated — parts of Mourian bodies are made of gold and so are their homes.

There are few doors through which you can travel to their society, but those that are known are large and well guarded.

Werewolf Camp

The Waylanders Celtic Age

The Werewolf Camp is… a camp full of werewolves! Located deep in the woods, this werewolf tribe are master hunters and enjoy trading with the outside world. Visitors here are rare as the camp’s inhabitants are seen as intimidating by many humans, and also because werewolf camps are guarded by actual wolves.

Dunnios

Dunnios is an enormous necropolis inhabited by few living souls. These grounds house the bodies of thousands of Celtic dead from many centuries past, including the legendary King Breoghan.

Dunnios is what is known as a crossroads — a place where the lines blur between the living and the dead. Such crossroads are known to attract dragons… tread carefully.

Aunes

The Waylanders Celtic Age

Aunes is a charming seaside town, mostly inhabited by Goblins. The Goblins of Kaltia are mischievous, playful creatures who don’t intend harm — but their tricks may border on dangerous if they think it’s funny… so it’s best to be on your guard.

Medhu’s Peak

The Waylanders Celtic Age

Medhu’s Peak is the only Mourian city outside of the Underworld. It is named for the ancient goddess Medhu and is wealthy beyond imagination. The gold mines here are seemingly ever-flowing, and ancient magick is felt in the very air you breathe.
