Wyrdsong Revealed At Gamescom; Dark Fantasy Open-World RPG
Wyrdsong a fantasy open-world RPG was unveiled during Opening Night Live during Gamescom 2022. The title is being worked on by a studio made up of veterans from Obsidian and Bethesda under Something Wicked Games. The team have worked on major game series such as The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Dragon Age: Inquisition, The Outer Worlds and more.
The game is based on a fictional version of Portugal, set in the middle ages. Not many details were given but what we do know is the game sets to have a fully customisable main character, with full-fledged RPG mechanics such as combat and questing.
The trailer doesn’t give too much away story-wise, but we do get a sense of an ominous presence with “The Eye” which seems to encompass the land. It’s very fantasy based, but also inspired by history with a semi-mythological influence of Templar knights according to a recent interview with Polygon.
