Yesterday the new game based on Arthurian myths came out: the anticipated King Arthur: Knight's Tale! So anticipated, in fact, that it was funded by a Kickstarter campaign.
This is, of course, joyous news for all who like the Arthurian myths. Maybe it's just me, but that mythology does not quite get as much video game focus as, let's say, Norse (God of War and AC Valhalla, I am looking at you) or Greek (hey there, Hades!)
And while certain elements of those myths found their place in videogames, like the Sword in the Stone in Fable or the Sword in the Lake in Witcher games, is nice to see the stories of Arthur, his Knights of the Round Table (many may remember Lancelot), Queen Guinevere, Merlin and Morgana, and the legendary Camelot itself properly come to life in a videogame again.
Indeed, the last time we had a decent King Arthur-themed game was over 10 years ago, arguably with King Arthur II: The Roleplaying Wargame:
But that one was a strategy. In contrast, King Arthur: Knight's Tale is a combination of RPG and turn-based tactics, and is more of a "XCOM" in a Dark Fantasy Arthur Myths setting" kind of game.
So King Arthur: Knight's Tale is "the latest and the best" in the turn-based tactics genre for all you tacticians out there! Has anyone tried it yet?
And it is a great opportunity to brush up on your Arthur myths, a chance that does not come around all too often! Or maybe you know more Arthur-based games that we did not mention?
