The digital version will be available on the PlayStation Store on September 19th, with the Xbox One boxed retail and digital releases launching on the same day, as scheduled.
They say that revenge is a dish best served cold and nothing screams revenge more than years of wrongful incarceration. Blackguards 2 is a turn based RPG where players follow the story of disgraced noblewoman Cassia as she embarks on a dark and brutal quest to clear her name and take the throne from the one man who imprisoned her…her own husband!
To celebrate the launch of Blackguards 2, Kalypso and Daedalic have revealed the official launch trailer, offering gamers a glimpse at the tense, tactical hexfield battles that await within this dark fantasy world based on the mythology of classic tabletop RPG ‘The Dark Eye’.
