  • This evening, the genre mix of rolling games, economic and life simulation on Steam was released as an early access. We've looked at the developers' plan.
    Yesterday evening, 09/26/2017 at19:00 GMT, the Early Access version of the game The Guild 3 was unlocked on Steam, from THQ Nordic.

    The Guild 3 will transport you to the Middle Ages in the year 1400 where gradually, the nobles will lose their influence over the destiny of the world and the free cities experience, through the increasing trade influence, there can be an upswing however. As a player, you experience the story of your own family dynasty in this unusual mix of business, strategy, life simulation and rolling game genre. The adventure takes place in one of 12 maps, on which a different number of historical cities can be found. Engage in your craft-work, a secret society, or local politics. Many of you may know these aspects from the previous guild games and in our past Gamescom report, we have already created a The Guild 3 report.
