    Tags: Disciples: Liberation; Frima Studio; Kalypso Media

    Disciples: Liberation, the unexpected revival of the Disciples franchise from little-known developer Frima Studio, was released yesterday. The release trailer is focused on those aspects of the game that have been emphasized since it was announced back in February - choice and consequences, factions, all that stuff.


    Disciples: Liberation has gotten a few reviews and its scores aren't even that bad. However, thanks to the demo that was released for Steam Next Fest earlier this month, they aren't too necessary. In contradiction to the serious tone of its trailers, our users found that the game contains some remarkably silly dialogue. Its gameplay does have some interesting aspects, although it's not the greatest either. If you want the professional reviews as well, here they are:

    GameSpace 7.5/10
    GameSpew 8/10
    Player 2 B​

    Disciples: Liberation is probably doomed to fall even flatter than King's Bounty II did, but if you are curious, the game is available on Steam for $40.

    It doesn't look bad, but it's not what I want at all from a Disciples game. How hard can it be to make a more difficult version of Disciples 2?

    I am not giving Goolag my passport details just to watch a shitty promotional video. I suppose our News Bot has already done so and is not even seeing the issue.

    Steam reviews are currently fine, in general people that liked the resemblance with King's Bounty games and were dissapointed by KB 2.

    And a few complaints of buyers that do not liked that is more similar to KB than to previous Disciples. There is currently a problem with the localization, apparently in some Eastern Europe contries it is only available in russian and not in english.

    Who needs reviews? All you need to know is it was made by some no name studio which never made a strategy game before.

    You can install Tampermonkey plug-in for the browser of your choice and then add Simple Youtube Age Restriction Bypass script. Works like a charm (but you have to watch blocked videos directly on YouTube, I think).

    What really pisses me off is that Gooshit already knows my age, my name and my address because they're the single most comprehensive surveillance operation on the planet.

    I don't know, it actually does not seem that bad. I never liked the old Disciple games that much anyway, so am not butthurt about the new design or whatever, there is a free Demo on steam so I will try it and see what it is like.

    It sort of looks okay just looking at it and from the first reviews..glad there is a demo.

    I passed in front of the Frima Games studio building in Quebec very often through the years. I did today and they had a huge banner for Disciples Liberation.

    I remember in years past that instead, the banners were for forgettable and average Steam and mobile games.

    And suddenly they worked on a strategy game revival for a beloved franchise? And people trust them not to dumb it down and mess it up?

    If you had seen those utterly forgettable games, you'd know there's no way they could succeed in making a great game with Disciples: Liberation.

    Too bad they lost the unique art style.
    Also too bad they sell a Deluxe Edition with... extra skill points?!?!?!
    Oh well, at least they have Undercut StrongWoman to show how they aren't sexist at all by using a stereotype.

    The gameplay really doesn't look terrible, though, so I guess this one is a wait-for-sale. And check the demo if I ever have time for that...

    Too bad? TOO BAD?

    That's like saying "it's a teeny bit shame my asshole exploded in a cloud of bloody mist and shit splinters".

    It's a fucking catastrophe. D2 and D3 were some of the most artistically accomplished and unique games ever made. It's p. much what put D2 on the map in the first place. Seeing this generic Unity garbage for the first time a few months ago was like a punch in the dick.

    That's true, but I play games for their gameplay, not their artstyle.
    I'd definitely enjoy it more if it was unique, but looking generic won't usually prevent me from playing a game if the rest is convincing.

    Sure, everyone does but art is a huge added value.

    Consider this - Disciples 1 has a grate gameplay but looks like an octogenarian vagina. Maybe that's why most people today barely even realize there IS such a thing as Disciples 1.

    Great art doesn't make the game better, just more enjoyable a WAY more memorable.

    What's the difference between this and the Disciples 3 that was released practically yesterday? Did the same people really make a new one in that short span of time?

    Disciples Liberation is another failure as Kings Bounty 2.

    I'll admit the age-restricted youtube video caught my eye, but I can't be bothered to watch it and nothing else here really sells the game for me, so whatever.

    Is this a serious post? D3 was released over a decade ago an the differences between it and this game are very out there in the open for everyone to see.

    Disciples 3 was an HoMM V homage, this is like a smartphone shovelware reboot of the 2008 King's Bounty reboot.
