Team17 and Covenant.dev today released an extended gameplay of their new real-time strategy game called Gord coming to PC in 2023.
Lead the people of the Dawn Tribe as they venture into forbidden lands. Complete missions and shape their personalities; it influences their well-being and decides the fate of their community. Ensure the survival of your population in a gloomy fantasy world inspired by Slavic folklore.
Build palisades, develop structures, and grow your gord from a modest settlement to a formidable fort. However, expanding will not be easy at all! Your population is constantly threatened by enemy tribes, horrible monsters and mysterious forces that inhabit the nearby forests.
Choose a scenario from a wide range of options and try to emerge victorious. Take your time or give yourself an impossible challenge: you can adjust almost all parameters! Choose from a wide variety of main objectives, select the size of the level, the intensity of the raids, the environment in which you will play, the type of enemies you will face, the resources you start with or even the hostility of the climate. Of course, don’t forget the Horrors.
A healthy population is the key to survival in Gord. Every aspect of your colonists’ lives—from disease and starvation to the death of a family member—can impact their sanity and exhaustion levels. Keep an eye on them, because if they reach a critical state, they can react in different ways: from suffering a crisis to even fleeing your domains.
Please the gods with your prayers and they may give you access to their magical abilities. Enchantments are of a different nature: some are offensive and others are defensive, but all are useful and can be used in combat. Hide areas from your enemies, gain control over menacing beasts, or unleash your raging rage on anyone who dares to contradict you.
The gameplay shows the construction model and the management of the community in a campaign that will rely heavily on the decisions we make.
