Massive Chalice is launching out of Early Access on June 1st, Double Fine has announced. The latest title to emerge out the gates of Tim Schafer’s game factory, Massive Chalice is a turn-based tactical strategy game with a stark aesthetic. You’re the Immortal Ruler of a nation, taking charge of army embroiled in a several hundred-year long war with the Cadence.

Double Fine’s twist on the tactical strategy norm is in its Bloodline system; heroes can be paired off to produce children, with the resulting offspring a result of randomised genetic traits. A child can inherit its parent's’ greatest strengths or their worst vulnerabilities, while enforced permadeath ensuring every great hero is precious.

It’s been in Early Access since late last year, but the move to release and version 1.0 is bringing with it some changes. In addition to the usual tuning, fixing, and polishing, the launch version of Massive Chalice will come with full controller support, a revamped UI, and Steam Achievements.

After listening to lots and lots of useful feedback on the mid to endgame, the team has spent a considerable amount of time rebalancing the game to be more fun, fair, challenging, or punishing, depending on how you look at it,” reads the launch announcement. “Thanks to everyone who helped us with this fine tuning, we got some invaluable feedback from you guys.

Massive Chalice is out on June 1st for PC, with an Xbox One version coming later down the line. Will you be grabbing this for your turn-based fix?

Me too! I thought something named "Double" was fining Massive Chalice. This goes to show the power of the apostrophe.
