Hey there folks!

Just dropping a quick news today to announce that Solasta: Crown of the Magister and its DLCs are now playable on Xbox One & Xbox Series X/S! Read below for more details.



F.A.Q.

How does Game Pass / Microsoft Store work between PC & Xbox?

Purchasing Solasta: Crown of the Magister and any DLC on the Microsoft Store makes them both available on PC and Xbox! The base game is also available via Game Pass on both PC & Xbox.

Are the DLCs available on Xbox?

Yes, all the DLCs can be purchased on Xbox.

Are the save files shared between PC Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass?

Yes, you can continue your PC playthrough on Xbox and vice versa

Is there Multiplayer Crossplay between PC & Xbox? What about Crossplatform between different Xbox consoles?

Yes, you can play multiplayer with Xbox (Xbox One to Xbox Series X/S) & PC players (Microsoft Store, Steam, GoG) & Mac players (Steam) in the same session!

Is the Dungeon Maker available on Xbox?

While you can download Dungeon Maker maps & campaigns from https://solasta.mod.io/ and play them on Xbox, you can't create custom content directly via the Dungeon Maker on Xbox. The Dungeon Maker was deemed too complex to adapt to pad control, so creating custom maps & campaigns is limited to the PC version for now.

Can I use the pad on PC now?

Not yet! There are many additional requirements before we can submit a pad-compatible version on PC, so it's not as simple as it may seem. 

Where can I get the Game / DLCs?

You can get it on the Xbox store here!

Todays patch, borked the game.


MANY players report CTD, many report screen lockup//freeze, many report an inability to access point buy in character creation.

I think a heads up or warning would have been appropriate.

For GOG users, we dont have a beta channel to revert to an older version. Where is our fix?

It looks like settings has been resetted and pretty much destroyed the PC compatibility. My friends and I (3 people) were enjoying the game before this patch, now it is close to unplayable.

We tried to restart the game, optimize the game with GeForce optimizer (which removed a small part of the lag), removed antialiasing (helped a bit) and removed Shadows (helped a bit aswell, but we were fine before).

We are using NVIDIA 1050, 2060 Super and 3060...

The writing and all the texts are way too small, it's really way too small, how are you supposed to be able to read that on the TV via xbox, it doesn't work at all and many self-created campaigns that you can download from mod.io often have problems that you can't get any further because the A button is missing.

This is a common problem when porting PC games to consoles, the text is too small to read on the TV when you're sitting on the couch.  But it is a killer problem, because if you can't read the text you can't play the game.  A solution used by some games is a font size slider, so that we can enlarge the font size to big enough.

First of all, thanks for porting this great rpg on xbox family ! Is there any chance to have mouse/keyboard support in the future ?To play with a pad it's a little bit clunky and for that reason we don't have access to the dungeon maker. Again, thanks for this great game and have a nice days !

I think they need to make it work before they start adding again. Right now, the game is broken and for whatever reason, Tactical Adventures has chosen not to even comment on that status.


Again, for STEAM players, within a very short time, the option of rolling back to the pre patch version was made available but for GOG players? No such option. WHY the open disdain for GOG buyers?


No mention here in the patch news, about the Known Issues. Those only show up on the patch notes on STEAM. Hell GOG's most recent patch notes, are for the patch before, the patch prior to this last one.

I just discovered this game on the Xbox today, no advertising or news, it just appeared on game pass and I decided to give it a shot.

I love the game so far, character creation is deep and intuitive and I've found the controls work well on the gamepad so far unlike above comments find the text size ok even with my old eyes.

Thanks for porting this game to Xbox and will probably buy the DLC when I've finished the main game.

The game basically has been made unplayable due to graphical/UI glitches. Everything was fine before the patch. Clearly no beta testing was done before rolling this out.

My God what a bad UI ... what is wrong with you , who should read this on a TV ?... Should I play with a magnifying glass , how can you still make the same mistake in this day and age and keep the font for console games so small , what for beginners. Unbelievable. And how many bugs it has on Xbox , but I also have no desire to report that , since from your side also no reaction then comes , am not your beta tester . No chance . So the game has no chance on Xbox.

Exactly why I no longer report bugs, I am the clown for the game developers ? Never I will be beta tester and still pay for it, the times are over .

I also have no desire to report more errors, for what ? No reaction , and nothing is changed .
