King Arthur: Knight's Tale coming to Xbox Series X|S and PS5 on February 22

A unique hybrid between turn-based tactical games and traditional, character-centric RPGs, King Arthur: Knight's Tale is a modern retelling of classic Arthurian mythology filtered through dark fantasy tropes, and presents a compelling twist on the traditional tales of chivalry.

The game originally launched on PC, following a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2020 that earned the game a devoted and passionate fanbase. Since its original PC launch, the game has been lauded by critics, described by RPG Fan as “a top-notch tactical RPG” and “the definitive King Arthur game.”

Console features

  • Graphical options: Players can choose between a Quality Mode offering 4K visuals, or a Performance Mode that prioritises framerate.

  • Local PvP: Challenge your friends on the battlefields of Avalon in local multiplayer.

  • Haptic Feedback: PS5 players can get closer to the battlefield than ever before, thanks to haptic feedback support for the DualSense controller.

  • Xbox Achievements and PlayStation Trophy tracking.

Support for this console release will continue long after launch with seasonal content, optional skirmishes, and more features coming at a later date.

Set in a dark fantasy world based on the Arthurian myth (and our previous King Arthur strategy games), this Tactical / RPG hybrid begins right after the famous battle of Camlann, with a twist:

You are Sir Mordred, the nemesis of King Arthur, the former black knight of the grim tales. You 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.

Main Features

  • Your Fights - Control a small team of heroes and fight grueling, but satisfying battles with a deeply engaging, tactical turn-based combat system. Choose from more than 30 heroes across six diverse classes and combine hundreds of skills and artifacts to assemble an efficient team.

  • Your Heroes - Gather your own Knights of the Round Table and send them on knightly quests. These heroes are the most important resources and the most complex gameplay elements at the same time. But beware! Death is always final! You must manage them at the Round Table accordingly, planning ahead before going into battles. The character progression system is designed to be as deep as in the traditional RPGs: heroes level up on unique skill trees and the complex loot system provides unique options to fine-tune their tactical capabilities. Each hero has a distinctive personality and their loyalty is constantly changing through the decisions made by the player – in certain cases they can even leave the Round Table and turn against you.

  • Your Kingdom - See the entirety of Avalon presented on an Adventure Map, observe all the territory, select your missions and explore various places. Management in King Arthur: Knight’s Tale focuses on rebuilding Camelot and expanding the mystical Stronghold with new buildings that each unlock various upgrades, and also offers different ways to heal up and manage the heroes of the Round Table.

  • Your Legend - Play as Sir Mordred, the former nemesis of King Arthur. Explore the mystical island of Avalon, venture on knightly quests and make decisions in various encounters where you'll need to make moral choices, as in most RPGs, which all have impact on the story and your Morality. The end of the campaign opens up new endgame content for the bravest of all: tough new challenges appear on the map with challenging, mythic boss fights and random quests, loot, and character progression ultimately leading to the banishing of Balor, the monstrous god-king of the Fomorians himself.

  • Beyond the Legend - Complete more than 50 unique points of interest on the Adventure Map, including 20 story missions and various side quests, taking place on diverse terrains. Journey to dark castle dungeons and the forests of the Sídhe, all built by using photoscanned environments and complemented by high-quality mocap animation, then rendered inside a modern PBR engine utilizing DirectX 12 to support strong, atmospheric effects. Challenge seven enemy factions, fight more than 50 types of enemy units, and overcome ten incredible boss fights throughout your quests.

King Arthur: Knight's Tale will be available for Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 on February 22, 2024.
