6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Daedalic Entertainment has announced the release of its turn-based RPG Blackguards as well as a demo for the game. The demo gives players the chance to experience the first chapter of the game. Set in the universe of The Dark Eye, Blackguards puts players in the role of a convicted murderer leading a team of outcasts and criminals who are the world's last hope of survival.

Demo:

Daedalic Entertainment opens the gates to Aventuria for everyone: the first chapter of the turn-based RPG is now available as a free demo version. This version includes all of the finalized game's features, including the advanced character creation. This has been implemented in the course of the last weeks due to feedback given during the Early Access phase. Players can use save games they created while playing the free demo in the full game as well, should they decide to purchase the full game.

About Blackguards

Blackguards is probably one of the bleakest stories ever told in the universe of 'The Dark Eye':

What if the only remaining hope of a world is not a company of virtuous heroes, but instead a bunch of outcasts and criminals? Blackguards will answer this very question. The player takes on the role of a convicted murderer, accompanied by a group of no less dubious characters.

They may spare the world its grim fate, but their good deeds are neither acts of kindness nor heroism, but according to their roguish nature rather a result of their attempts to save their own hides.

Staying alive is a feat of its own, since not only the long arm of the law wants their heads, but there are also other, mysterious powers with much more sinister intentions on their trail. As if all this wasn't enough, Aventuria's south is crawling with dangerous beasts and monsters...

Blackguards is a turn-based RPG with strategic combat and combines the studio's high standards of storytelling and unique characters with thrilling action and an elaborate 3D environment.
Challenging quests lead the player through a dark story of doubt, treachery and loss.
