inXile Entertainment Demos The Bard’s Tale IV
Developer inXile Entertainment released a new demo walkthrough video for The Bard’s Tale IV: Barrows Deep. The video features twenty-three minutes of gameplay with developer commentary and shows exploration and the game’s first-person turn-based combat.
The Bard’s Tale IV is the first mainline game in the series since The Bard’s Tale III released in 1988, though a spoof/unconnected spin-off simply titled The Bard’s Tale was released in 2004 and VR title The Mage’s Tale was released in 2017. The Bard’s Tale IV was crowdfunded through a Kickstarter campaign in 2015 and is planned for release on PC, Mac, and Linux in 2018.
