King Arthur: Knight’s Tale Arriving on Steam Early Access in January
NeocoreGames announced that its tactical RPG King Arthur: Knight’s Tale will be made available on Steam Early Access on January 12, 2021. The game, which underwent a successful Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign last month, is expected to spend a few months on Early Access before fully launching on PC, with releases on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X to follow.
King Arthur: Knight’s Tale puts players in the role of Sir Mordred, King Arthur’s nemesis. Though Mordred was able to kill Arthur, Arthur struck back with his dying breath. However, both Arthur and Mordred still live. The Lady of the Lake, the ruler of the island of Avalon, brings Mordred back in order to finish off Arthur, or whatever his body has become.
The game features over thirty heroes across five different classes, with players selecting a team to go out on missions and encounters against seven enemy factions. These heroes have their own skill trees and upgrade options; however, they can also be permanently injured or killed. It also features a morality chart, with player decisions leading to different branches in the story.
