Whilst us over on the console side of gaming may have missed out on the original Blackguards title, the sequel is now here and it promises to bring us an exciting new RPG adventure, delivering more hex-field battles and an even grittier story filled with violence and crime than ever before.
With three years passing since Count Uria’s plots, the Vanquishers of the Nine Hordes have long parted ways, but life in Aventuria continues on. As the young and noble Cassia, there is one goal in sight – it’s time to claim the Shark Throne, no matter the price, and claim it for only one day. Two problems stand in her way however, firstly she spends her days incarcerated within a dungeon, secondly, the throne is already taken by King Marwan. With a keen plan to break free and take the throne for her own, she’ll need some worthy allegiances along the way. Can you claim the Shark Throne?
Blackguards 2 brings with it 20 hours of challenging story, packed with twists and turns as well as a number of non-linear story paths to keep the adventure fresh. With decisions that affect your whole squad at the end of the game, you will need to choose wisely, especially if you want to protect your ragtag band of loyal recruits. It’s time to travel Aventuria, come and take the throne.
