Sands of Salzaar - English Language Edition Live on Steam

I can’t say I’ve ever had the chance to play a Chinese RPG. And if you find yourself in the same boat but would like to remedy that gap in your RPG education, you should direct your attention to Sands of Salzaar.

Developed by Han-Squirrel Studio and X.D. Network, this title invites us to explore a vast open world, interact with its various factions, participate in large and small-scale real-time battles, and customize our characters in a variety of ways.

Sands of Salzaar launched into early access earlier this year and was generally well-received. Now, it looks to also be available in English. So if a game like this sounds like something you might enjoy, you can currently pick it up for $8.99 or your regional equivalent thanks to a special discount running through October 6, 2020.

Here’s the game’s official description:
