From Press Release:
STOCKHOLM and SEATTLE – June 13th, 2023 – Paradox Interactive and developer Harebrained Schemes today announced that The Lamplighters League and the Tower at the End of the World, the globetrotting tactical turn-based strategy game, will launch on October 3, 2023, for PC and Xbox Series X|S. Paradox and Harebrained Schemes also revealed the Deluxe Edition, featuring an additional playable character. Pre-order the base game now on Steam, Epic, Xbox, and the Microsoft Store.
With the Deluxe Edition, players can recruit the mysterious Nocturne, a macabre spectrophysicist who was marooned in an alternate dimension, and returned forever altered. Nocturne manipulates her body’s electric field to inflict Shock Damage on her enemies while also supercharging her cutting-edge suit to enhance her abilities.
“In The Lamplighters League, you command characters, not units,” said Chris Rogers, Game Director for The Lamplighters League at Harebrained Schemes. “Your Agents have unique abilities and upgrades allowing for powerful gameplay combinations for you to discover in missions. Each of your characters has a shadowy past and their own reason for joining the fight. Some like each other more than others, and you’ll see that on and off the battlefield.”
The Lamplighters League is an original pulp adventure set in an alternate 1930s, challenging players to use a mix of real-time infiltration, tactical turn-based combat, and team management to thwart the plans of the Banished Court, a tyrannical cult on the cusp of world domination. To stop the Banished Court in its tracks, players must:
- Recruit the Best of the Worst: Scour the globe to 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 your 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.
