Computer game 'Blackguards' from Daedalic Entertainment.
Hamburg-based game developer Daedalic Entertainment is off to explore new frontiers. Blackguards, a newly-announced title due out this summer, will be the studio's first venture into creating a turn based RPG.
Framed in a significantly darker story than is usually found in a Daedalic title, players of Blackguards will walk in the boots of a convicted murderer as he travels through Aventuria's wild south. On this journey the protagonist is accompanied by more or less loyal companions; scoundrels and thieves like the half-elf Niam (and her latent drug addiction) or the lecherous wizard Zurbaran.
Blackguards features lots of lethal creatures and other enemies waiting to be taken care of on more than 180 unique battlemaps. A number of major and minor quests ensure exciting and diverse gameplay throughout the campaign.
As can be expected in all Daedalic titles, Blackguards focuses on strong storytelling. Now combined with action packed gameplay and tactical combat. The developer says that gamers can expect more than 40 hours of playtime in this title.
This game will be a PC exclusive.
