I'm very interested in Sovereign Syndicate.

I'm also downright excited about Redfall at this point. I hadn't been because I thought it was going to primarily be a multiplayer action game, but the more I read/hear about it, the more I want it.

The makers of Genashin Impact release a preview stream / video for their next game, which is actually looking like a standard turn based JRPG : "Honkai : Star Trail".

This is the summary of it (official page) : https://www.hoyolab.com/article/17235112 and at YT : https://www.youtube.com/@HonkaiStarRail/

On their twitch video at least, the real stuff begins at 14:40 (with a humorous prelude at 12:00).
There is a *lot* of information in it, it may be that one needs to replay a few passages, because there's so much information in it.

Getting new party members is similar to the mechanic in Genshin Impact : You receive items, which you can use to kind of bet on a character - with a certain chance.
As far as I understood it, one can get these items through in-game play, so there is actually no need to pay anything. As a result, this game can be played absolutely F2P like Genshiin Impact, I suppose.

Since this game is turn based, it seems to have more complicated mechanics than Genshin Impact has.

I believe that one shouldn't read the plot in the Wikipedia page, because it contains lots of spoilers.

To summarize the interview somewhat, it tells us why the developers decided to go with a trio of premade characters (a minotaur magician, a corsair courtesan, a dwarf and his automaton) and the unique perspectives they bring to the table. The dwarf in particular will be drawing certain parallels between the modern-day advent of AI and a Victorian take on it with sentient steam-powered robots.

Travis Northup is back with a review in progress update after the second beta weekend and lots of time with the Necromancer and Druid classes under his belt. The build-crafting system, the joy of spontaneous alliances that its online model allows for, and the surprisingly engaging combat all continue to impress.
