King Arthur: Knight’s Tale Early Access Release Pushed to Later This Month
Developer NeocoreGames has announced that the Steam Early Access release of tactical RPG King Arthur: Knight’s Tale has been pushed back. Previously planned for launch today, the Early Access version will now release on January 26, 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. Despite killing each other in battle, both Arthur and Mordred still live and The Lady of the Lake, the ruler of the island of Avalon, tasks Mordred with finishing 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. It also features a morality chart, with player decisions leading to different branches in the story.
