A tale of the ages, NeocoreGames look to twist things up a little, combining turn-based tactics with character-driven RPG elements. And they are looking to do it in King Arthur: Knight’s Tale on Xbox and PlayStation. 

The official ‘street’ date for release of King Arthur: Knight’s Tale is February 22nd 2024. But as is fast becoming the norm, there is a way of gaining access to the modern retelling of classic Arthurian myth right now. In fact, if you have an Xbox Series X|S or PlayStation 5 to hand, you can be playing this very second – or at least once your download has got a shift along. 

An adventure that looks set for a King, in King Arthur: Knight’s Tale you’ll be dropped into a dark fantasy world, one that promises to deliver a bit of a twist on the usual, more traditional forms of chivalry. 

King Arthur: Knight’s Tale has you playing through life of Sir Modred; the killer of Arthur. The thing is, as death was bestowed, he took you out too and you died together. At least, you thought you died together and instead, it seems like you both lived. On the call of the Lady of the Lake, you must finish your mission… 

What plays out in King Arthur: Knight’s Tale is a role-playing tactical game. A game focused on the round table, on loyalty, on decision making and more. The question is, how will you navigate through the life and world on offer in King Arthur: Knight’s Tale?

Key features

  • A ROLE-PLAYING TACTICAL GAME – Experience a unique hybrid between tactical games and character-centric RPGs! This dark fantasy version of the Arthurian myth invites you to manage a team of heroes on the dangerous battlefield, while also engaging in moral choices, hero management, and the rebuilding of Camelot.
  • A NEW MONARCH – You are Mordred, brought back to life to find the undying mad king Arthur, and ultimately, kill him to end this accursed condition. Your personality shaped by your actions and moral choices, and the Morality Chart represents your status between Christianity and Old Faith, Tyranny and Righteousness.
  • THE ROUND TABLE – Gather your knights and send them on quests involving deep, tactical battles! Assemble a team of heroes from six diverse classes, level up, gain unique skills, equip the best items. Heroes can die, the treatment of their injuries and afflictions takes time. Make sure that Camelot has the right facilities for recovery, prepare different heroes for various quests!
  • LOYALTY – Heroes have their own goals, rivalries, unique traits, skills and bond benefits. Settle disputes, grant favours, select heroes who can work together, send them on missions they’re fit for. Careful, their loyalty depends on many factors – they can even turn against you!
  • DECISIONS – Decisions matter, whether selecting actions in the turn-based combat or making choices that affect the story. Each playthrough can unfold differently, branching in unexpected ways.
  • ENDGAME – After the campaign the endgame unlocks, reserved only for the bravest. Tough new challenges appear on the map with mythic bossfights, random quests, more loot and character progression. Banish Balor, the monstrous god-king of the Fomorians!

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 and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore.
