Daedalic Entertainment writes in to inform us that their turn-based tactical RPG Blackguards is about to have its first DLC, Untold Legends, as well as a major new patch, to be released on March 4. The DLC will be free for those who purchased the "Blackguards Contributor’s Edition"; otherwise you'll be able to buy it for € 4.99/$ 5.99/£ 3.99.
Untold Legends sheds new light on the background and heritage of Takate, the former slave and arena fighter, who joins the player’s party in chapter 2 of the original Blackguards. Takate’s home is in the foothills of the rainforests in Southern Aventuria, where most of the native people of the Moha originate from. In Untold Legends, players will learn how Takate became a slave gladiator, and get the chance to take revenge on all the slavers that caused so much pain to him for much of his life.
”Untold Legends” will offer new weapons, several new quests, more than 10 new battle maps and 25 previously unreleased music tracks. Priced € 4.99/$ 5.99/£ 3.99, the DLC will be available digitally for purchase through all major download shops such as Steam, GOG, the official Mac App Store and Gamesrocket. Customers who purchased one of the retail editions of Blackguards can acquire the DLC through Gamesrocket.com Customers, who purchased the Blackguards Contributor’s Edition via Steam will receive this first DLC automatically and for free.
Simultaneously with the Untold Legends DLC, Daedalic releases patch 1.3 for the original Blackguards game. The patch will majorly improve the game’s balancing system, giving players better insights into their characters’ hit chances, and how to improve these. Showing the Hit Chance during battles is no longer depending on the talents Warcraft and Animal Lore, so players will always know the odds when choosing among normal- and special attacks. Also, the new patch will now allow to display a full battle log, including all dice rolls, to allow full transparency of all events while in combat.
