From Press Release:
AUSTIN – August 17 – Airship Syndicate the trailblazing indie studio (Darksiders Genesis, Battle Chasers: Nightwar, Ruined King: A League of Legends Story) and Warframe creator Digital Extremes, invite players to jump into
Wayfinder, with Early Access available worldwide today on Steam for PC and for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
A love letter to fast-paced RPGs and MMOs, Wayfinder enters Early Access today with Gloom Break: Founder’s Season One, the first of two seasons exclusive to founding players with an all-star voice cast including Jennier Hale (Mass Effect, Metroid Prime), Steve Blum (Cowboy Bebop, God of War), JB Blanc (Darksiders, Apex Legends), Zeke Alton (Remnant II), and more. A new launch trailer available on the Wayfinder Youtube channel later today highlights the game’s eclectic cast of playable Wayfinders, shedding light on their battle-scarred backstories and preparing founding players for the journey ahead.
“Traditionally when launching boxed games, you go through cycles of excitement, anxiousness, and nervousness when you are about to get the game into the player’s hands, said Steve Madureira, Wayfinder’s Game Director. “With Wayfinder we know this is just the start, so we’re incredibly excited to start reading and listening to feedback and reacting on it; making Wayfinder a success for years and years to come.”
Airship Syndicate is dedicated to using Early Access to build a strong foundation for years to come when Wayfinder launches free-to-play next year. Players in Early Access will adventure through 6 locations, collect 6 Wayfinders, and hunt powerful bosses to craft 17 weapons at launch, with even more planned throughout the season. Players in Early Access are entitled to so much more than access to the game – exclusive rewards are available to players based on the Founder’s Pack purchased. Four Founder’s Pack tiers are available from Basic to Exalted: the higher the tier, the more exclusive the rewards. Founder’s rewards highlights include Heroic Kyros, the first Heroic-level Wayfinder available exclusively in Wayfinder’s Exalted Pack, the Highlands Strider Mount and Saddle, available only in Awakened and Exalted Packs, and the Founder’s Dye Set, available in the Initiate Pack and above. All Founder’s Pack will also include an allotment of Runesilver, Wayfinder’s in-game currency. For complete details about Founder’s Packs, check out this page that breaks it all down.
With Gloom Break: Founder’s Season One, players will be able to experience Airship Syndicate’s evolution of the traditional battle pass that is more interactive, rewards-packed, player-friendly, and, best of all, never expires once purchased! Gain XP through gameplay and earn Reward Tower Keys to unlock coveted items, including crafting components for Venomess, her unique style set, color dyes, and so much more.

“When we speak about the beginning of Wayfinder, this is just that—the beginning of a long and ever-evolving world for players to explore with friends and experience endless adventures,” said Richard Browne, Head of External Projects at Digital Extremes. “Alongside our founding players, the team at Airship Syndicate and ourselves look forward to building this experience together through Early Access and beyond.”
