Developer NeoCore Games announced that dark fantasy turn-based tactical RPG King Arthur: Knight’s Tale will be arriving in Steam Early Access on January 12, 2021. The EA period will last for a few months, with regular content updates leading to the full release on PC in early 2021 and later on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.
The team describes King Arthur: Knight’s Tale as a Role-playing Tactical Game – a unique hybrid between turn-based tactical games (like X-Com) and traditional, character-centric RPGs. The game is a modern retelling of a classic Arthurian mythology story filtered through the dark fantasy tropes, a twist on the traditional tales of chivalry. Players will have moral choices to make which will have significant consequences.
KING ARTHUR: KNIGHT’S TALE STORY:
You are Sir Mordred, the nemesis of King Arthur, the former black knight of the grim tales. You killed Arthur, but with his dying breath, he struck you down. You both died – and yet, you both live.
The Lady of the Lake, the ruler of the mystical island of Avalon brought you back to end a true nightmare. She wants you to go on a knightly quest. She wants you to finish what you have begun. Kill King Arthur – or whatever he has become after she took his dying vessel to Avalon.
