What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Knight's Tale was initially funded by a Kickstarter campaign, and we plan to keep involving the community in the development process. We will take this time to iterate features, balance changes and more, together with our backers and Early Access players, to make sure that they receive a fine-polished product by the time of the final release.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We're planning to be in Early Access for around 3-7 months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“New features will be added regularly during Early Access, with most of the story campaign becoming available in the final release.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current Early Access version features the first two maps of Chapter One of the story campaign and multiple random maps.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes, the price of the game will be different after it leaves Early Access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We've built a community during our Kickstarter campaign, and we'd like to further extend this community via Steam Early Access. We'll keep posting regular updates on all our social platforms (Steam, Discord, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Twitch and our Neocore Community Forums), react to user feedback, answer questions on a daily basis and hold regular Q&A streams on our Twitch channel - similarly how we did during our previous projects. User feedback to particular gameplay elements will play a very important role for content updates and for the final release.”

About This Game

You are Sir Mordred, the nemesis of King Arthur, the former black knight of the grim tales. You killed King Arthur, but with his dying breath, he struck you down. You both died – and yet, you both live.

The Lady of the Lake, the ruler of the mystical island of Avalon brought you back to end a true nightmare. She wants you to go on a knightly quest. She wants you to finish what you have begun. Kill King Arthur – or whatever he has become after she took his dying vessel to Avalon..



A Role-playing Tactical Game

Experience a unique hybrid between turn-based tactical games and traditional, character-centric RPGs! This dark fantasy version of the Arthurian mythology invites you to manage a team of heroes on the dangerous battlefield, while also engaging in moral choices, hero management, and the rebuilding of Camelot.


The dark fate of the kingdom

Explore a land of nightmares where vile monsters and magical creatures lurk within castles and forests. The battle between Arthur and Mordred brought death, both of them falling at the hands of each other, and now the consequences unfold. Arthur, resurrected in Avalon, is now an undying mad king, his pain slowly turning this magical place into a nightmare version of Britannia. You are Mordred, brought back to life to find Arthur, and ultimately, kill him to end this accursed condition.


The Round Table reborn

Gather your knights and send them on quests involving deep, tactical battles! Assemble a team of heroes, selecting from six classes (Defender, Champion, Marksman, Vanguard, Arcanist, Sage). Level them up, gain unique skill points, equip the best items looted from missions. But beware! Heroes can die, and the treatment of their injuries, curses, diseases take time. Between missions, make sure that Camelot has the right facilities for recovery, and prepare different heroes for different quests.


A question of loyalty

Heroes are your main resources – but no mere numbers! They have their own distinct personalities, goals, rivalries (even unique traits, skills and bond benefits). They will observe your decisions closely! Settle disputes, grant favours, select heroes who can work together, send them on missions they are comfortable with. Tread carefully, because their loyalty depends on many factors. They can even leave and turn against you!


The making of a monarch

You, as a king, have a personality as well, shaped by your actions and moral choices. The Morality Chart will represent your status between Christianity and Old Faith, between Tyranny and Righteousness. Your choices affect values on this chart, influencing both gameplay and narrative.

The weight of decisions

Every small decision matters – not only the moral choices, but actions taken in the turn-based combat as well. The campaign unfolds with a roguelite twist: no reloads, only regrets! The thrill of dealing with the consequences is half the fun, but your decisions also affect the story. Each playthrough can unfold differently, branching in unexpected ways.


The end is only the beginning

Play through the campaign (once or see multiple paths), and after that, you unlock the endgame, reserved only for the bravest. Tough new challenges appear on the map with mythic bossfights, random quests, more loot and character progression ultimately leading to the banishing of Balor, the monstrous god-king of the Fomorians.





At release, King Arthur: Knight's Tale will be available with English voice acting, with English, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Chinese, Hungarian text localization. We may add other languages later.
