Party-based RPG, The Waylanders, has shared its character creator and gameplay in a new video.

The Waylanders is set to release on Steam Early Access this summer, according to the accompanying press release, which also shares additional information on the character creator.

Players creating their character in The Waylanders have six base classes to choose from: Warrior, Guardian, Rogue, Ranger, Sorcerer, and Healer. Each base class will have a variety of specializations available at later levels, giving a wide range of options for multiple playthroughs.

Formations were also discussed. For example, they grant special attacks, abilities, and transformations based on the class makeup of the player character and their accompanying companions. This video above also shows just a few of the formation abilities available including the three shown in the video: Golem Transformation, Spear Rush, and Conclave.

You’ll also be able to select your race such as Human, Mourian, Half-Formorian, Werewolf. You’ll also be able to choose from a variety of backgrounds including Celtic Soldier, Celtic Druid, Egyptian, Mourian Diplomat, Mourian Protector, Dogs of Ares Mercenary, Alpha Wolf, and Slave.
