Harag's Marshlands Update Steam

The open-world RPG Wartales has received its first major content update called the Harag’s Marshlands. This sets you and your band of mercenaries to the rugged, rocky, and swampy area of Ludern where new enemies, environments, and creatures reside.

Ludern is a brand new region you can explore. Along with it are Forsaken Villages - places where you can recruit members to join your team. But be careful, if you create too much noise, you’re going to be in a lot of trouble.

Some of the new enemies that you can come across in Ludern are Bears, Giant Mosquitoes, and the unique Crocswines. Furthermore, each enemy faction now has a new unit that can be unlocked upon reaching Level 5. Enemy factions also have a unique passive trait that unlocks after Level 6, making them even stronger than ever.

But don’t worry, your group gets stronger in this update as well. The level cap has been increased, with a new step of specialization unlocked at Level 8, and each class has access to brand new skills. Additionally, you can tame almost all types of animals and they come with their unique skill trees too!
