The game features battles with up to 100 players fighting in castle sieges in an effort to destroy the opponents’ stronghold.

Two game modes will be available at launch: a two-team 40 player mode, and a five-team mode with up to 100 players.
Larkspur, Calif. (Sept. 7, 2022)– Toylogic is proud to announce Warlander, a new live-ops game in partnership with PLAION.
Warlander is a free-to-play, third-person, online multiplayer warfare game set in a medieval fantasy world. Up to 100 players will be able to join up and battle it out as part of two or five armies in skirmishes and castle sieges with the goal of breaking into the opponents’ stronghold and destroying its core. The game will launch on PC first starting with an open beta and will be released on consoles afterwards.
Playing either as a warrior, cleric, or mage with their own unique set of skills, players will have the option to build up squads of finely customized characters for the battles ahead. This includes skill and ability customization as well as visual modifiers to help characters stand out in the heat of battle. There will be two game modes available at launch: a two-team mode with up to 40 players and a five-team mode with up to 100 players.
“From the beginning, our mission was to create a game players will fall in love with after the first match. Be it the strategic challenge, the thrill of the combat or the excitement of creating that perfect character squad, we wanted to make Warlander for everyone. A game that doesn’t only offer competitive fun every time you spawn but one that requires true leadership skills and tactics to master. We are eager to start our open beta on PC and show Warlander to the world.” – said Yoichi Take, Game Director and President of Toylogic.
The game will kick-off with an Open Beta stage on PC where players will be able to sign up, try and join the community while helping shape the game’s future by taking part as early as Monday, September 12th, 2022.
“We are extremely excited to be working closely with Toylogic on our live-ops title, Warlander. Their experience and expertise are undeniable and the feedback we have received from the international press so far is truly amazing. It’s clear that they can deliver a great gaming experience. Our goal is to deliver such experiences to gamers all over the world.” – said Stephan Schmidt, Director of Partner Publishing at PLAION.
