Solasta: Crown of the Magister, a turn-based tactical RPG that launched earlier this year, is currently seeing a hefty price drop as part of Steam’s autumn sale. Based on Dungeons & Dragons’ SRD 5.1 ruleset, the game sees your gang of adventurers head into ruins and dungeons on the hunt for legendary loot and try to stop an approaching cataclysm from taking place, with dice deciding your fate along the way. If that sounds like your bag, the good news is it’s currently half-price.
As part of the Steam autumn sale – which runs until December 1 – Solasta: Crown of the Magister is 50% off, making it £15.49 / $19.99 as of writing. We enjoyed the game when it launched, scoring it a healthy seven-out-of-ten in our Solasta: Crown of the Magister review. “Solasta: Crown of the Magister stands stoically at the cross section of several game worlds,” reviewer Jarrett Green said at the time.
“From a distance, the isometric RPG dungeon diving evokes old Infinity Engine games like Baldur’s Gate. Combat scenarios play out like an XCOM skirmish with a few more bells and whistles. Character moments and conversations remind me of Dungeons and Dragons, complete with stat checks and dice rolls. And yet, perhaps surprisingly, Solasta feels more like a tactical RPG than a DnD alternative, but is a delightful package nonetheless.”
