'The Bard's Tale IV' Revealed

by Rainier on Jan. 24, 2015 @ 1:34 p.m. PST

The Bard's Tale IV: Barrows Deep is a new installment in the classic RPG series, returning players to the place where it all began, Skara Brae.

InXile Entertainment's Brian Fargo revealed that the developer is working on The Bard's Tale IV, and while an official announcement and kickstarter campaign are forthcoming, a recent interview sheds some more details on what to expect.

"Traditional turn-based combat," as Fargo calls it, bases turns on varying factors, creating battles in which different characters attacked at different times, often alternating between opposing sides. But in The Bard's Tale IV, teams attack all at once. This increases the pace of the combat, and allows for a different set of tactics than the traditional system might allow.
