Fantasy turn-based tactics game Fort Triumph is leaving Early Access

Fort Triumph is part XCOM, part Heroes of Might & Magic, a turn-based tactics game where you march a party of heroes across a map, pausing to fight goblins and skeletons and collect treasure. It's got a unique focus on moving objects and even NPCs in battle, so you can yoink someone out of cover or topple a pillar on top of them, just for a couple of examples. 

After a successful Kickstarter campaign and two years in Early Access, developers CookieByte Entertainment have announced that they're ready to bring their baby into full release on April 16.

The full version will include a three-act story campaign, skirmish mode for up to eight hot-seat or AI players, four classes with their own abilities and upgrades (paladin, barbarian, mage, and ranger), town management, resource management and more. It's on Steam now.

Jody's first computer was a Commodore 64, so he remembers having to use a code wheel to play Pool of Radiance. A former music journalist who interviewed everyone from Giorgio Moroder to Trent Reznor, Jody also co-hosted Australia's first radio show about videogames, Zed Games. He's written for Rock Paper Shotgun, The Big Issue, GamesRadar, Zam, Glixel, Five Out of Ten Magazine, and, whose cheques with the bunny logo made for fun conversations at the bank. Jody's first article for PC Gamer was about the audio of Alien Isolation, published in 2015, and since then he's written about why Silent Hill belongs on PC, why Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale is the best fantasy shopkeeper tycoon game, and how weird Lost Ark can get. Jody edited PC Gamer Indie from 2017 to 2018, and he eventually lived up to his promise to play every Warhammer videogame.
