After releasing a bunch of acclaimed adventure games, ( The Whispered World, Deponia, The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav), the developers at Daedalic Entertainment are now off to new frontiers with Blackguards, the studio’s first turn based RPG. In the game we will take on the role of a convicted murderer who must use the help of a team of more than questionable characters,┬álike the half-elf Niam (and her latent drug addiction) or the lecherous wizard Zurbaran, to save the world from a dark menace.

Blackguards takes place in South of Aventuria, the world of The Dark Eye, and like all Daedalic titles it will be characterized by its strong storytelling, now combined with action packed gameplay and tactical combat. The game will deliver more than 40 hours of adventure in Aventuria with more than 170 unique battlemaps, and a number of major and minor quests.

Blackguards will be available internationally in Q3 2013.
