'Blackguards' Accepting Closed Beta Sign-ups

by Rainier on Aug. 30, 2013 @ 7:38 a.m. PDT

Blackguards is a turn based RPG where the only hope of a threatened world lies not with heroes in shining armor but in the hands of a band of misfits and criminals.

The player takes on the role of a convicted murderer, who with the help of a team of more than questionable characters, must save the world from a dark menace. During the wild chase throughout the South of Aventuria, the world of The Dark Eye, there is more to fight than vicious creatures – chapter by chapter a story full of intrigue and surprising twists unfolds. But when life and death are in the player’s hands, how far will they go to reach their goals?

Players from all over the world will get the chance to play-test the sinister RPG which centers around a party of criminal "heroes", way before the actual release in November 2013, and get the chance to influence the development with their feedback.

All players need to do to be part of the open beta test phase, is sending an email and mention why they want to be chosen, and the depth of their gaming experience is. Participation slots are limited. Chosen participants will receive more details from Daedalic Entertainment.

The closed beta test runs from September 04th until October 02nd, 2013, and  participants need to be at least 16 years of age. Participants will also see their name appearing in the creadits of the final game.

On this journey the protagonist is accompanied by more or less loyal companions; scoundrels and thieves like the half-elf Niam (and her latent drug addiction) or the lecherous wizard Zurbaran.

The first turn-based RPG by Daedalic Entertainment unites the studio's suspenseful storytelling and unique characters with gripping battles in elaborately crafted 3D-environments. In taxing campaigns the player takes part in a dark story full of doubt, betrayal and loss, delivering more than 40 hours of adventure in Aventuria.

Whether the player chooses to go into battle as a mighty warrior, a clever wizard or a skillful hunter, the first battle isn’t far away. Over 180 individually crafted battle maps full of interactive objects and strategically complex situations lead the player to exotic locations and put them through deadly trials.
