Developer Breadcrumbs Interactive and Versus Evil’s upcoming action RPG title Yaga was one of the highlights for us at PAX East earlier this year, thanks to its addictive top-down gameplay and impressive world inspired by Slavic mythology, among other things. And it looks our adventures with main character Ivan will begin sometime soon, as a release window has been announced, and pre-orders are now open at the Epic Game Store. Those interested can choose from either the game, a copy of the unique Romanian hip-hop soundtrack for it by Subcarpați, or a bundle featuring both.
Yaga sees Ivan having to complete a series of impossible tasks given to him by the tzar, crafting his fate along the way as he’s watched over by Baba Yaga, who provides the occasional assistance. Ivan also crafts numerous powerful weapons and gear as well, all of which come in handy when battling various enemies such as Nightingale the Robber, who’s highlighted in the latest video for the game. You can check it out below, along with the most current gameplay trailer. Yaga is due out in November as a timed exclusive for the Epic Games Store, and will arrive for PS4, XB1, and Switch at the same time. An Apple Arcade version is also planned, but no word if it’ll be part of the simultaneous release as well.
