About Blackguards

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 – the new turn-based RPG by Daedalic Entertainment 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?

The first turn-based RPG by Daedalic Entertainment unites the studios high standard of a suspenseful storytelling and unique characters with gripping battles in elaborately crafted 3D-environments. In taxing campaigns the player takes part in a dark story full of doubt, betrayal and loss.

Whether the player chooses to go into battle as a mighty warrior, a clever wizard or a skillful hunter, the first battle isn’t far away. Over 180 individually crafted battle maps full of interactive objects and strategically complex situations lead the player to exotic locations and put them through deadly trials.

Blackguards is available now on PC and Mac from digital download portals for the RRP £29.99 for the Standard Edition and £44.99 for the Deluxe Edition.
