A new adventure coming soon. Paradox Interactive

If you're in the market for a tactical turn-based strategy game, you're in luck. The Lamplighters League and the Tower at the End of the World is coming out on October 3. The game is made possible through a partnership between developer Harebrained Schemes and publisher Paradox Interactive. It's going to be available on PC and Xbox Series X/S.

Pre-orders are now available on Steam, Epic Games Store, Xbox, and Microsoft Store. A deluxe edition is also being offered which features an additional playable character, the mysterious Nocturne. She's a macabre spectrophysicist who was marooned in an alternate dimension and while she did return, she has been forever altered. Nocturne can manipulate the electric field in her body to deal shock damage to enemies. She can also supercharge her cutting-edge suit to improve her abilities.

The game offers an original pulp adventure set in an alternate 1930s. Players have to stop the plans of the Banished Court, a cult almost on the verge of world domination. To make it happen, they need to plan for real-time infiltration combined with tactical turn-based combat and team management. Some features of the game include:

  • Recruit the Best of the Worst
    • Recruit outlaws and outcasts before the Banished Court catches them first.
    • Learn their stories and the world they inhabit by taking them on tactical missions.
  • Play Dirty
    • Each misfit brings a signature style to the fight through unique moves that can turn the tide of combat.
    • Sneak past enemies in real-time infiltration gameplay, pick off stragglers quietly, or strategically position the squad to get the upper hand.
    • Every mission earns the team resources and advances each character's unique ability.
  • Leave No Stone Unturned
    • Explore a variety of thrilling locales, from dockyards and deserts to jungles both urban and wild.
    • With dynamic map generation, no two missions unfold the same.
    • Analyze the battlefield to see what enemies, items, and cover are in the area to plan your attack.

In a statement, Harebrained Schemes Game Director shared that players don't command units but characters instead. He added that agents have unique abilities and upgrades which should be fun for players as they discover those strong gameplay combinations.
