'The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics' (ALL) Announced - Screens & Trailer

The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics is a new multiplatform strategy RPG based on the forthcoming series from Netflix.

Licensed in partnership with Netflix, the game will offer fans the opportunity to step into the fantasy world of Thra by playing through the events of the series and beyond, experiencing new characters, story elements and environments.

In The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics, players will return to Thra to lead the heroic Gelfling as they seek to restore light to the world and fulfill the prophecy. Over the course of 80 unique, turn-based campaign battles, players will recruit new allies and customize their forces, opposed at every step by the malevolent Skeksis.

The expanded world of Thra in the game contains diverse territories, each offering the ability to learn more about the Gelfling clans and their histories. In turn-based combat, players lead the Gelfling resistance by using guile, planning, and cunning. Units can be customized for specific fights with gear, upgradeable abilities, and an expansive job system. Dynamic events on the battlefield, which can create opportunities or put the Gelflings at a disadvantage, may necessitate rapid changes in strategy to keep players on their toes. Thus, battles are highly replayable, and after completing the game players can also challenge a New Game+ mode with more difficult versions of the battles.


“The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics will allow fans to delve further into the history and world of Thra as they conduct multi-layered and evolving tactical battles on the side of the Gelfling against the Skeksis,” said Stefan Ramirez, Director of Live Services at En Masse Entertainment. “Players will experience living, unpredictable environments that encompasses not only the events and characters of the Netflix series, but new game-exclusive characters, stories, and challenges.”

Key Features:

  • Continue the Story in an Expanded World of Thra - Delve deeper into the legend of The Dark Crystal, learning more about the Gelfling clans and their histories across more than 5 diverse, modular territories. Choose from over 15 character jobs and play through reimagined and brand-new battles against the malicious Skeksis, and help lead the proud Gelfling to victory.
  • Gelfling Tactics - Devise unique ways for the outmatched Gelfling to fulfill their prophecy in multi-layered, turn-based tactical combat. Units can be customized for specific fights with gear, upgradable abilities, and a job system. Use guile, planning, and cunning to overcome superior foes!
  • Highly Replayable - Replay finished battles to earn full marks, or replay the entire game! Once completed players can challenge a New Game+ mode, keeping all progress from their first playthrough to re-experience more difficult versions of the battles.
  • Rich, Dynamic Environments - The world of Thra is a living, unpredictable environment as dangerous as it is beautiful. Dynamic events on the battlefield, which can create opportunities or put the Gelflings at a disadvantage, can necessitate rapid changes in strategy.

Fans will finally be able to re-visit the fantasy world of Thra when The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance debuts on Netflix on August 30, 2019.

The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics will release for Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC/Mac, targeting a 2019 release.
