In the words of developer NeocoreGames, King Arthur: Knight’s Tale is a unique hybrid between turn-based tactical games and traditional, character-centric RPGs. Knight’s Tale is a modern retelling of a classic Arthurian mythology story filtered through the dark fantasy tropes, a twist on the traditional tales of chivalry.
You are Sir Mordred, the nemesis of King Arthur, the former black knight of the grim tales. You’ve killed King Arthur, but with his dying breath, he struck you down. You both died – and yet, you both live.
The Lady of the Lake, the ruler of the mystical island of Avalon brought you back to end a true nightmare. She wants you to go on a knightly quest. She wants you to finish what you have begun. Kill King Arthur – or whatever he has become after she took his dying vessel to Avalon..
This is Any Button Gaming’s Early Access Let’s Play, as well as my first ever turn based RPG (yelp). Some come along and laugh at my unwavering ineptitude and gawk at my massive face as we grab the big sword by the shaft in King Arthur: Knight’s Tale!
After today, all episodes will go out at 5pm GMT, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Enjoy!
