Gord Team Showcases 16-Minutes of Gameplay


Team17 and Covenant developers have taken to the airwaves with a new Gord video diary. Game Director Stan Just showcases 16-minutes of gameplay action while discussing game features and its unforgiving world. Just introduces viewers to the game’s unique take on the strategy genre that is firmly based on proto-Slavic mythological roots.

During the video, Just introduces the game’s hybrid blend of strategy genres. These include city building, community management, and “player-driven adventure mechanics”. He emphasizes that players will have a wealth of choices throughout the campaign. In addition, the “Custom Scenarios” mode offers a chance to create adventures according to individual tastes.

Another key feature Just introduces is the “Gord”, or settlement, system. He offers a peek at some of the structures players can build and how each “Gord” is customized by what buildings are constructed. Buildings include combat training facilities for better-equipped units or a temple to increase magical abilities.

Lastly, Just discusses Gord’s focus on personal stories. Citizens in the game have unique personalities, attributes, and actions, each of which can influence player decisions. Of course, these decisions will have long-term social implications.

Gord features include:
  • a dark fantasy setting
  • a unique city builder with survival elements
  • a variety of AI-driven quests
  • custom scenarios with procedural generation
  • impactful sanity and burden systems
  • powerful incantations
  • a mysterious world to explore
