Xbox Game Studios’ inXile entertainment has announced that classic RPG The Bard’s Tale will soon be available to users of Amazon Alexa devices with a turn-based combat system that rewards strategic thinking, similar to those that are found in traditional role playing games.
The Bard’s Tale – Warlocks of Largefearn is an Audio RPG with four different playable classes with two advanced subclasses unlocked through character progression, and players will be able to interact with the world in a completely different way to a traditional linear story in that it is voice controlled.
Users of screen enabled devices are also welcomed by hand drawn images for characters, locations and combat to bring the adventure to life, and players will also be able to see the combat grid and make moves that will have an effect on the outcome of the battle.
inXile entertainment added: “It’s exciting to see how Wanderword has brought The Bard’s Tale to a new medium, staying true to the world and fantasy while exploring new ways to play. We think everyone’s really going to enjoy playing in the Bard’s Tale world in a brand-new way.”
The Bard’s Tale – Warlocks of Largefearn launches on Alexa in December.
