Daedalic Entertainment has today launched Blackguards via the Steam Early Access programme. Set for final release in January 2014, the Early Access programme allows gamers to influence the development of Blackguards as well as accessing content that would otherwise be unavailable.
What happens when the only hope of a threatened world lies not with heroes in shining armour but in the hands of a band of misfits and criminals? Blackguards explores this very question. The player takes on the role of a convicted murderer, who with the help of a team of more than questionable characters must save the world from a dark menace. During the wild chase throughout the South of Aventuria, the world of The Dark Eye, there is more to fight than vicious creatures – chapter by chapter a story full of intrigue and surprising twists unfolds. But when life and death are in the player’s hands, how far will they go to reach their goals?
Blackguards is now available to download via the Steam Early Access programme in three editions, each with exclusive content not available in the final release. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on this and other forthcoming releases from Daedalic Entertainment.
