Daedalic Entertainment’s turn-based tactical RPG based on The Dark Eye universe, Blackguards, has hit Steam Early Access.
Blackguards casts you as the leader of a band of misfits and criminals… who may be the only ones that can save the world. We’re promised a “dark and mature” story involving crime, drugs, and murder, as well as a branching plotline.
The Early Access version currently contains the first chapter of the game, with the rest of the chapters being released in three week intervals. You can get your hands on it now for a minimum of £17.08, with various other goodies – artbooks, developer interviews, free DLC, free copies of Chains of Satinav – available if you pay for one of the more expensive special editions.
Not sold? There’s a trailer below, which at least proves that it looks rather nice.Related to this article
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
