Highly-anticipated turn-based RPG Black Legend is set to launch on March 25th, 2021, and created by Belgian game development studio, Warcave.

Synopsis: Hidden deep within a mysterious, deadly fog, lies a terrifying cult. What their objective is, we are yet to discover. However, as players begin to explore the rich lore within this 17th century world, brutal beasts and the truth behind the organization of this terrifying cult will begin to be made clear.

Some key features of Black Legend include:

 

  • Strategy-Focused Gameplay: Approach each combat with a tactical focus, where unit placement, ability combos, and well-chosen attacks are key to survival. Black Legend focuses on old school strategy vibes, but without the 95% percent chance misses. 
  • Explosive Combos:  Mix up your ranged and melee combat by using alchemy for a wide array of explosive effects. Combine stacks of four different alchemic attacks to injure, poison, and debilitate your foes, but be warned, they will do the same to you.
  • Extensive Character Customization: Build your mercenary band with a wide array of classes, each with unique abilities. Improve each of your mercenaries with new weapons, armor, and trinkets, and create your own ability sets by equipping cross-class abilities. 
  • Choose Your Difficulty: For those who wish to see the story, the path can be gentle. For those who wish for difficulty, even the slightest mistake will be greatly punished.
  • Historic Enemies: Black Legend fills the city of Grant with creatures from Belgian, Dutch, and German folklore like nekkers, Halewijn, Witte Wieven and Old Red Eyes. 
  • An Engaging Story: Dive into the narrative through environmental storytelling, colorful NPCs, and rich set pieces.
  • An Entire City to Explore: Free-exploration lets you investigate the many alleys and streets in the city of Grant. Different districts host a wide variety of architecture and environments — you never know where you’ll discover a hidden path, a treasure trove of new items, hidden quest, or recruitable character.

 

In order to build the hype before the major launch, Warcave released this dark, new trailer to demonstrate some of the new details and features of this immersive adventure. Players will lead a band of mercenaries to lead the resistance, which can be done with a variety of playstyles. 

With fifteen different playables classes available, such as an Alchemist or a Sharp Shooter, every single player will find a strategy that works for them individually. In order to unlock classes, players must collect the specific equipment required for that class, adding a welcome challenge. 

 

Black Legend will be available to play on March 25th, on all of the following platforms:

 

  • Steam
  • PS4
  • PS5
  • Nintendo Switch
  • Xbox One
  • Xbox Series X
