The world featured in the bestselling Redwall children’s fantasy books has come to life with the arrival of The Lost Legends of Redwall: The Scout, which signals the beginning of a whimsical episodic adventure on Xbox One.

The Scout is the inaugural episode of the series and comes across as a stealth-adventure type experience. The narrative actually takes place in the middle of winter, prior to the events depicted in the original Redwall book. Our protagonist is a mouse, Sophia, who’s just about to graduatd as a woodland ranger tasked with protecting the village of Lilygrove. After a band of sea rats raid the place in the midst of her graduation, Sophia must use all of her astuteness to make it out alive, with the player’s help of course.

It is down to you to aid Sophia in finding away along the River Moss, wading through the now snow-covered channel with very few friendly woodlanders around. Expect the adventure to include a bit of fisticuffs and feasting as you meet mysterious characters like Valo Scrimpaw, the ghost of Martin who hopes to offer assistance, and a murderous wearet (a hybrid creature) named Scumsnout.  

If you wish to embark upon this episodic adventure, you’ll find The Lost Legends of Redwall: The Scout for Xbox One costing £12.49 right now on the Xbox Store.

Game Description:

A whimsical adventure game based on the bestselling Redwall™ books. Set in the winter shrouded wilderness between Lilygrove and Redwall™ Abbey, help Liam or Sophia race for help from the raiding rats under Scumsnout’s command. “The Scout” is the first episode of “The Lost Legends of Redwall™” and is best understood as a stealth-adventure game, taking place in the middle of winter prior to the events of the original “Redwall™” book. “The Scout” tells the story of a mouse who is driven to Redwall Abbey when sea rats raid the peaceful village of Lilygrove. Not too far from the storied walls of Redwall™ Abbey is a small village of mice and moles called Lilygrove. Our hero, Sophia, is the newest member of the Lilygrove Scout Corps, a group of woodland rangers tasked with the protection of the little village and trained in the ancient ways of woodcraft. But her graduation is cut short by the sudden raid from a band of sea rats led by the brutal wearet, Scumsnout. It will take all of her wit and guile to make it out alive! The events of “The Scout” play out along the ancient, but now altered, course of the mighty River Moss. What was once a wide river is now the sunken bed of a seasonal creek that that runs east-west between Redwall Abbey and the Great South Stream that feeds the swamps south and east of Salamandastron. The player must find a way through the confusing snow-covered channel punctuated by occasional hedgerows, ancient stone walls, scattered shacks, and the few-and far-between hearths of friendly woodlanders. Along the way there is untold adventure to include (of course) feasting, fiddling, and even a few fisticuffs as we meet Valo Scrimpaw, the mysterious stoat who lives in the Winsome Wraith, Scumsnout the murderous weret, and even the ghost of Martin who offers assistance just when all seems lost.
