King Arthur: Knight’s Tale updated release date announced

Turn-based tactical players take note, King Arthur: Knight’s Tale is here to win over your hearts. Set in a dark fantasy world, players will find themselves in a rather unfortunate twist. You play as Sir Mordred, the nemesis of King Arthur. After presumably killing King Arthur, he took you down with him in his dying breath. Now you are both dead, but yet, seem to live. The Lady of the Lake has brought you to Avalon, where she wants you to go on a quest, to kill King Arthur once again. Now faced with this nightmare, you must do your job again of killing King Arthur, or whatever he has become in this realm after the Lady took his dying vessel here.

For those eager to grab the game right now, it is already available on Steam through Early Access. In this version, players can enjoy the entirety of the campaign’s first Act. The rest of the campaign and endgame mode will be added when the game releases in March. Normally the game was set to release in February but this has been pushed back to ensure the fans the strongest version of the game.

Key features include:

  • Your Fights: Control a small team of heroes and fight grueling, but satisfying battles with a deeply engaging, tactical turn-based combat system. Choose from more than 30 heroes across six diverse classes and combine hundreds of skills and artifacts to assemble an efficient team.
  • Your Heroes: Gather your own Knights of the Round Table and send them on knightly quests. These heroes are the most important resources and the most complex gameplay elements at the same time. But beware! Death is always final! You must manage them at the Round Table accordingly, planning ahead before going into battles. The character progression system is designed to be as deep as in the traditional RPGs: heroes level up on unique skill trees and the complex loot system provides unique options to fine-tune their tactical capabilities. Each hero has a distinctive personality and their loyalty is constantly changing through the decisions made by the player –  in certain cases, they can even leave the Round Table and turn against you.
  • Your Kingdom: See the entirety of Avalon presented on an Adventure Map, observe all the territory, select your missions and explore various places. Management in King Arthur: Knight’s Tale focuses on rebuilding Camelot and expanding the mystical Stronghold with new buildings that each unlock various upgrades, and also offer different ways to heal up and manage the heroes of the Round Table.
  • Your Legend: Play as Sir Mordred, the former nemesis of King Arthur. Explore the mystical island of Avalon, venture on knightly quests and make decisions in various encounters where you’ll need to make moral choices, as in most RPGs, which all have an impact on the story and your Morality. The end of the campaign opens up new endgame content for the bravest of all: tough new challenges appear on the map with challenging, mythic boss fights and random quests, loot, and character progression ultimately leading to the banishing of Balor, the monstrous god-king of the Fomorians himself.
  • Beyond the Legend: Complete more than 50 unique points of interest on the Adventure Map, including 20 story missions and various side quests, taking place on diverse terrains. Journey to dark castle dungeons and the forests of the Sídhe, all built by using photo scanned environments and complemented by high-quality mocap animation, then rendered inside a modern PBR engine utilizing DirectX 12 to support strong, atmospheric effects. Challenge seven enemy factions, fight more than 50 types of enemy units and overcome ten incredible boss fights throughout your quests.

King Arthur: Knight’s Tale is coming out of Early Access on PC on March 29th. The game will release for Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5 at a later date.
