January 2014 announced as new release date for upcoming RPG
Acclaimed German Publisher, Daedalic Entertainment have today announced the upcoming turn-based RPG Blackguards will release in January 2014. A step away from the adventure games Daedalic are known for, Blackguards sees the Hamburg based publisher break new ground in terms of genre as well as the dark storylines the game follows. New screenshots for the game have also been released.
‘Of course we want to ensure the highest quality, even if we tread on new ground; and most of all, we want the players to enjoy the finished game.’, Kai Fiebig says, Senior Producer of Blackguards.
‘All the time we’ve gained now will be used to put as much effort as possible into improving the game. We’ll optimize performance, implement new features and also polish the visuals.’
Blackguards will be available January 2014 for PC.
Blackguards is probably one of the bleakest stories ever told in the universe of ‘The Dark Eye’; What if the world’s last hope is not a company of virtuous heroes, but a band of outcasts and criminals?
Blackguards answers this very question. Players take on the role of a convicted murderer, accompanied by a group of no less dubious characters. They may spare humanity its grim fate but this was neither an act of kindness nor heroism, but true to their roguish nature just the result of their attempts to save their own hides.
Staying alive is a feat of its own, not only are they hunted by the long arm of the law, but mysterious powers with much more sinister intentions are on their trail. As if all this wasn’t enough, South Aventuria is crawling with dangerous beasts and monsters…
Blackguards is a turn-based RPG with strategic combat and combines the studio’s high standards of storytelling and unique characters with thrilling action and an elaborate 3D environment.
Challenging quests lead the player through a dark story of doubt, treachery and loss.
