RPG King Arthur: Knight’s Tale Just Got A Big 2.0 Overhaul On Steam


Arthurian tactical role-playing game Baldur’s Gate 3 meets XCOM in King Arthur: Knight’s Tale

King Arthur: Knight’s Tale is a dark fantasy spin on the classical legend, combining Arthurian legend, the character-driven party RPG elements of games like Baldur’s Gate 3 and Divinity Original Sin, and the turn-based tactical combat of XCOM. If you’ve been looking for a new game to jump into after BG3, King Arthur: Knight’s Tale might be just what you’re looking for, thanks to a massive 2.0 upgrade and its new Rising Eclipse endgame content.

The plot of King Arthur: Knight’s Tale is straightforward but entertaining. You are Sir Mordred, King Arthur’s nemesis and black knight.

The two of you were killed in battle in a climactic conflict, but thanks to the Lady of the Lake, you both live on after death. It’s up to you to find out what happened to the King. As a result, the game is a very satisfying turn-based RPG with a slick combat system that pulls fantasy tactics from games like Baldur’s Gate 3 and Divinity in a more XCOM-like direction.

King Arthur: Knight’s Tale patch 2.0 gives the game a major overhaul and balance update, further refining its systems while adding new content. There are new hero skills and extended skill trees to further upgrade and enhance your characters, new Camelot buildings to build, artifact crafting, and much more. All of the heroes have received a thorough overhaul and balance pass.

All of that is also required because many of the maps and encounters have been updated and polished. That includes new enemy variants with varying skill sets, updates to combat arenas to improve cover, obstacles, unit pathing, and more, as well as additional balancing credited to “partly thanks to the fantastic community feedback.,” according to developer Neocore Games.

Rising Eclipse, a new seasonal endgame, is included with the major 2.0 update. Rifts appear across the land, obstructing light and attracting the attention of the Sdhe, a race of magical fey folk. It is up to you to seal the rifts, after which you will be able to transform their energy into magical enchantments using an ancient Sdhe shrine discovered beneath Camelot. Those of you who want to revisit previous seasonal content can do so through an option on the game’s main menu.

Patch 2.0 for King Arthur: Knight’s Tale is now available. It’s a great time to check out the game, and if you’re still interested, there’s even better news: King Arthur Knight’s Tale is 60% off on Steam until Saturday, December 9. That means you’ll only have to pay R1500. 00 ($17.99 / £15.19) to get started.
