Featuring multiplayer skirmishes and castle sieges that bring together up to 100 players, Warlander includes a medieval-inspired setting with supernatural items and abilities, as well as powerful robots. This free-to-play title is now available on Steam, with PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series consoles scheduled to follow in April.

Described as "an action-packed, third-person, online-multiplayer game, with a unique style that mashes a Medieval-inspired setting, Fantastical items and abilities…and…EVEN POWERFUL ROBOTS," Warlander has arrived yesterday on Steam, as it was announced back in November. If everything works as planned, this free-to-play title will also hit PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series consoles in April.

The game has two modes, namely 2 Army Battle and 5 Army Battle, in which up to 100 players fight to defend their keep and break into the enemy one to destroy their core. The gameplay combines 4X-inspired strategic diplomacy, Battle Royale knock-out, modern MOBA tactical team-fighting, as well as third-person ranged combat and hack-and-slash.

The system requirements are reasonable, although there seems to be no support for Windows 7 or 8. In addition to Windows 10 64-bit, the list of minimum requirements includes an Intel Core i5-7400 or AMD FX-6300 processor, 4 GB of memory, GeForce GTX 960 or Radeon RX 560 with at least 4 GB VRAM. The list of recommended hardware includes the Intel Core i7-8700 or AMD Ryzen 7 2700 processors, 12 GB of system memory, and a GeForce RTX 2060 or Radeon RX 5700 XT video card with 8 GB VRAM or more. In both cases, the game needs 10 GB of disk space.

After 1,048 user reviews, the result is mixed, with 59% positive ratings. However, those who consider this a red flag should keep in mind that many of the negatives mentioned by reviews posted by players who tested the game before yesterday's release have been ironed out.
