OnceLost Games, the studio formed by former major developers of the original Elder Scrolls games, has done so announced his new RPG: The Wayward Realms. The role-playing game for individual players is set in an open world of more than 100 islands called The Archipelago "where dozens of factions compete for influence and power." Players will not be tied to specific character classes, but they can make their own with “personalized skills and abilities” and the world will react differently to “a socializing aristocrat, a thief rooted in inferior conspiracies, a scholar who collects teach antique artifacts or any other paper you create for yourself ".
All of this sounds great to us. Unfortunately, for those who want to get the open world role-playing game, The Wayward Realms is likely to be a few years away.
On Twitter, OnceLost Games has been busy answering questions from curious fans and one of those questions was about when the new role-playing game could see the light of day. Developers aren’t even ready to set them up for a year.
It’s still too early to tell, sorry. It will probably be a few more years.August 2, 2021
"It's too early to tell, I'm sorry," says the study's response. "It will probably take a few more years."
"We're in no hurry, which is very painful for some people, we already know that," says another response, "but we want to fulfill our ambitions."
In another tweet, the study says that "We are not in full production yet, but we have been working on systems implementation and asset construction." The trailer, which shows a very large and heavily armored Ork ridden through a dark forest before reaching a view showing several moons on the horizon, is pre-rendered and shows no play.

OnceLost revealed a little more information about The Wayward Realms in other replies on Twitter. It's primarily a first-person game, but it also plans to support a third-person perspective (just like The Elder Scrolls role-playing games do). The game will not be fully performed by voice and "will be mostly text for dialogue." The developers expect the game to finally be available on the console, but right now the focus is PC. "With the new generation of hardware and Unreal facilitating portability, it's a good possibility, but there are no promises," the study said.
On a positive note, since it takes place on a number of islands, OnceLost says there will be pirates in the game and who doesn’t like pirates? And if you think werewolves are played a bit, The Wayward Realm will containwild boar. This is not seen every day.
