Blackguards is probably one of the bleakest stories ever told in the universe of ‘The Dark Eye’:
What if the only remaining hope of a world is not a company of virtuous heroes, but instead a bunch of outcasts and criminals? Blackguards will answer this very question. The player takes on the role of a convicted murderer, accompanied by a group of no less dubious characters.
They may spare the world its grim fate, but their good deeds are neither acts of kindness nor heroism, but, appropriate to their roguish nature, more likely the result of their attempts to save their own hides.
Staying alive is a feat of its own, since not only the long arm of the law wants their heads, but there are also other, mysterious powers with much more sinister intentions hot on their trail. As if all this wasn’t enough, Aventuria’s south is crawling with dangerous beasts and monsters…
Blackguards is a turn-based RPG with tactical combat and combines Daedalic’s recognized high standards of storytelling and unique characters with thrilling action and an elaborate 3D environment. Challenging quests will lead the player through a dark story of doubt, treachery and loss.
