Independent development studio Clock Drive Games has announced its debut title with the stunning dark fantasy, action-RPG Warlander, coming to Steam in Q3 2019. Warlander combines story-driven adventure with fast-paced swordplay. Precision slicing meets ragdoll physics, creating a brutal and visceral combat experience.
