Are you ready to go back? Way back to a time when InXile Entertainment were just making a name for themselves? Well, that’s exactly what you’ll be doing should you grab a purchase and play of the newly released The Bard’s Tale ARPG : Remastered and Resnarkled on Xbox One and Xbox Game Pass. For this is a game that came out of the foundations of InXile all those years ago – just remastered and revamped for the modern day gamer.
The Bard’s Tale – as a series – has gathered about a huge amount of interest over the years, culminating in launch of the brilliant The Bard’s Tale Trilogy and The Bard’s Tale IV: Director’s Cut in 2019. Today though it’s all about the debut game from a small team called InXile – a team who have since gone on to create wonderful experiences to become one of the most loved studios in gaming.
The Bard’s Tale ARPG was the debut title from a newly formed InXile back in 2004, yet here some 16 years later we find the team dropping a brand new remastered edition to Xbox One. Priced up at £15.49 or available as a free download to those with Xbox Game Pass subscriptions, The Bards’ Tale ARPG : Remastered and Resnarkled will see you given the opportunity to take in the original game, just with a bit more flair and visual polish added.
Given the opportunity to become the Bard, the quest and adventures you find yourself going on will be deep, enthralling, and utterly engaging. And whether or not you have played the game previously, have only discovered the series through recent releases, or are just looking for a new adventure to get your teeth into, you should be well catered for.
Our full review of The Bard’s Tale ARPG : Remastered and Resnarkled on Xbox One will be making waves in the days ahead, but for now get yourself over to the Xbox Store and pick up the goodness of a game that set InXile Entertainment on stunning journey.
You are the Bard: a selfish rogue weary of pointless sub-quests and rat-infested cellars. Through magical song you summon characters to join your quest!
