Arthurian Legends Release Date PC
Arthurian Legends is an old-school first-person action game, modeled on productions from the 90s. It's a debut production of an independent studio Scolaro Games.
In accordance with the title, the game takes a lot of inspiration from Arthurian legends. Its action takes place in a fantastic version of early medieval Britain, where historical truth is combined with myths. The campaign takes place before the creation of Camelot - during the reign of Uther Pendragon. This monarch used magic to win the heart of the woman he loved, and when she died he blamed those same powers for her death. He banned witchcraft and banished the followers of the old deities from Albion.
When the action of the game begins Britain is in a terrible state. The land is plagued by an unnatural crop failure, dark forces terrorize the population, and what's worse, the islands are being invaded by the Saxons, aided by the magicians expelled by Pendragon's decree. We take on the role of an ordinary warrior, who will try to single-handedly stop the triumphant march of the invaders.
Arthurian Legends is an action game which refers to the PC productions from the 90s. We observe the events from a first-person perspective, and the game is mainly about fighting with the help of an arcade system of battles. The mechanics of the clashes is relatively simple - the player can perform only one type of attack and cover himself from the blows with a shield.
Shields are slowly destroyed, forcing the player to find new ones, which limits defensive tactics. An added bonus is that raising the shield a moment before an enemy attack hits us reduces damage and stuns enemies for a moment. During the game we also help ourselves with runes activating various useful magical effects such as freezing targets, creating fireballs or summoning lightning from the sky.
There are ten types of weapons at the player's disposal, each of which has unique characteristics and purpose. The game also has a large variety of enemies. During the campaign we fight against human soldiers, demon mages, skeletons or giant spiders, among others.
Arthurian Legends allows only for solo play. Apart from the story campaign we can also test our skills in arena battles and horde mode, where we have to face more and more powerful waves of enemies.
The game was made in a style modeled on the productions from the first half of the 90's. The game world is three-dimensional, but many of its elements are made in 2D. The authors also decided on an unusual step and the characters of enemies and the main character were made by transforming the silhouettes of actors in costumes into animated sprites.
