Sunless Sea Inspired ‘Vagrus’ Leads The Charge With A Major Combat Update

Dark fantasy strategy role-playing game, Vagrus: The Riven Realms, has delivered its largest combat update to date. The multi-award winning Fig-backed title and poster child for its Open Access funding model) sees players take charge of an armed traveling company in a narrative-heavy sandbox world.

With a core focus on epic story-telling, lore, and challenging gameplay befitting its post-apocalyptic fantasy setting, players will need to trade, explore perilous locations, adapt their ambitions and make important moral choices in a seemingly amoral world.

The ‘Target Acquired’ update brings long anticipated improvements to its strategic turn-based combat, including a number of new options to configure attack preferences. The update also includes refinements to Vagrus’ unique Appeasement system.

Whether you prepare your comitatus with militaristic might, or choose to rely heavily on trade, the ‘Target Acquired’ update offers you more ways to appease your enemies, without instantly reaching for cold steel. Exploring the game world to discover and obtain these valuable charms and tools has become even more viable, opening up greater tactical opportunities when faced with challenging combat encounters.

In Vagrus you’ll always need to weigh up risks versus rewards. It’s not always the best course of action to fight, even if you’re stronger than the enemy. Sometimes there’s less pain in giving them what they want.

With the update now live, existing players can continue their journey to conquer the wastes.

Vagrus: The Riven Realms is available on Steam and Fig ($24.99) as an Early Access title.
