Enter the Realms of Arkania as the Blade of Destiny returns on Xbox One!

If you’re looking for a game that promises to deliver hours and hours of content, then you could do worse than check out the Blade of Destiny. No, not THAT Destiny – Realms of Arkania: Blade of Destiny.

Available now on Xbox One, Blade of Destiny is a total and utter remake of the 1992 title that was adored by a whole generation of role players. In fact, it turned out to be one of the most successful RPGs of the ’90s, no doubt paving the way for even more successful titles that came after it.

Priced at £31.99, it certainly isn’t one of those cheap and cheerful remakes, but should you wish to visit Thorwal – perhaps as a returning adventurer or a first time visitor – now is that time. Expect a complete reimagining in the visual sense, a full overhaul of the gameplay, plenty of tactical fights, enough magic to keep any wizard busy for months on end, and, depending on the game style you wish to go with, anything up to 80 hours of game time.

The Microsoft Store awaits your cash. Don’t forget to let us know if you decide to make that return to Thorwal and the city of Aventuria.

About The Author
Neil Watton (neil363)

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360’s life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One. A massive racing fan, Forza 4 was the daddy of all Xbox titles but Forza Horizon 3 now trumps that. Online first person shooters are my hell….probably because my reactions are so poor, but give me a little Indie title and I’ll be in heaven.
