Vagrus: The Riven Realms is a strategy RPG launching October 5. Read on for more details.

The announcement arrived during Gamescom in an exclusive interview with IGN. Vagrus: The Riven Realms spent just over one year in Early Access and is heading for a full release October 5. It’s described as a strategy RPG with a focus on epic story-telling, lore, and challenging gameplay.

Throughout your time with Vagrus: The Riven Realms, you’ll explore a post-apocalyptic fantasy setting as you trade, explore perilous locations, adapt, and make important moral choices in a narrative-heavy sandbox, amoral world.

As the team notes in the accompanying press release,

“Building a turn-based narrative heavy open-world strategy RPG was even harder than we imagined but looking back at our amazing journey in the last four years, not to mention the three decades of pen-and-paper campaigns that served as the foundations for the game, it was all worth it. On launch day we can bring that experience to even more players and that's exciting, humbling, and scary at the same time.”

If you’re interested in checking out the game upon full release, Vagrus: The Riven Realms is set to release on SteamGoG and Fig on October 5, retailing for $29.99. Keep in mind, regional pricing will be enabled for applicable countries.
