Choose-your-own-story multiplayer game Baladins will launch for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and Switch alongside PC via Steam in early 2024, publisher Armor Games Studios and developer Seed by Seed announced.
Here is an overview of the game, via Seed by Seed:
They call themselves Baladins, yet in the streets they were given many names over centuries. Itinerant artists, troops, troublemakers, party animals. They are entertainers for a living and travelers as a lifestyle. One day caring for people, the other day snooping around and causing disorder. Alternately glorious or utterly annoying. No one knows what their role is, yet their names remain in the folktales of every household. They stir up rumors.
Invariably, on their passage, hope blooms.

- Explore the World – Travel the strange lands of Gatherac and unravel all its secrets and legends. Everybody knows a good myth is based on some truth, and myths may be a lot closer than you think.
