It’s been a good twelve months for Awaken Realms Digital and their infinitely replayable, deckbuilding roguelike Tainted Grail: Conquest. After picking up some serious acclaim on PC, it’s that game which now tries its hand on Xbox and Game Pass.
Tainted Grail: Conquest currently sits on Metacritic with an 82 rating, after a PC launch in 2021 that went great guns. Now it’s time for that same game to hit console, as Awaken Realms Digital attempt to open up the market to a whole new world.
Priced at £16.74 or available for free through Xbox Game Pass, Tainted Grail: Conquest is playable on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S as deckbuilding fans get a taste of what made the PC community sit up and listen. But it’s not just a game that is suitable for those deckbuilders; this has story-driven elements, roguelike moments and a whole host of RPG-styled gameplay to satisfy all manner of players.
Whatever your gaming genre of choice, Tainted Grail: Conquest will thrust you into the world of Avalon as you attempt to work out what has happened on the cursed isle. A land full of foes, with ever-changing maps and plenty of secret, delving deep into everything it can bring will be the only way you’ll find success.
