Blackguards 2 Released on Consoles

Daedalic Entertainment's turn-based RPG sequel Blackguards 2 launched for PC way back in early 2015, but it wasn't until today - over two-and-a-half years later - that it was finally made available on the promised PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles. One would assume that there are a bevy of fixes given the amount of time since the initial release, but the press release doesn't mention anything outside of a digital artbook and soundtrack, and neither of those will be a differentiating factor. Anyway, on to the launch trailer:

Moving on, let's dig into the accompanying press release mentioned earlier:

Boxed Limited Day One Edition of turn-based RPG available now for PS4 and Xbox One across Europe

Bracknell UK, 15th September 2017

Kalypso Media and Daedalic Entertainment are excited to announce that turn-based tactical RPG Blackguards 2 is out now as a boxed retail edition across the UK and export territories for PlayStation®4 and Xbox One. The retail version will be available as a Limited Day One Edition containing a digital artbook and digital soundtrack revealing the stunning art and haunting melodies which served as inspiration in the creation of Blackguards 2. The digital version is also available now on the PlayStation® Store, with the Xbox One digital version due to arrive on the Xbox Games Store on 19th September.

In North America, the boxed retail edition of Blackguards 2 on PlayStation®4 has been delayed due to a manufacturing issue – a new release date will be announced as soon as it has been confirmed. The digital version will be available on the PlayStation® Store on 19th September, with the Xbox One boxed retail and digital releases launching on the same day, as scheduled.

They say that revenge is a dish best served cold and nothing screams revenge more than years of wrongful incarceration. Blackguards 2 is a turn based RPG where players follow the story of disgraced noblewoman Cassia as she embarks on a dark and brutal quest to clear her name and take the throne from the one man who imprisoned her…her own husband!

To celebrate the launch of Blackguards 2, Kalypso and Daedalic have revealed the official launch trailer, offering gamers a glimpse at the tense, tactical hexfield battles that await within this dark fantasy world based on the mythology of classic tabletop RPG ‘The Dark Eye’.
