Don’t let the trailer fool you: King Arthur: Knight’s Tale is not a Diablo clone. This is a skirmish set in the legend of King Arthur. However, this is not like the Disney movie, “Sword in the Stone”. This is a nasty, gritty, rigid Arthur, in addition to zombies.
At the early Steam demo version of King Arthur: Knight’s Tale, gamers will be able to try out some of the game’s first missions and a few side quests, the official version will have more role-playing elements.
At the most basic level, King Arthur: Knight’s Tale plays a lot like familiar RPGs. Players will control a team of heroes on a mission to fight with many types of villains: robbers, zombies, rogues.
Gradually gamers will be able to level up their characters, giving them new abilities and better equipment. Players will make choices that affect the development route of the skill tree chart, thereby affecting the character we will recruit.
All are set in the world related to the legend of King Arthur. Here the player will take on the role of Mordred, a resurrected character in search of the destroyed Camelot, along with King Arthur, who is also resurrected but has gone mad.
Players will begin to build an army and prevent the disaster that is raging on the land. Depending on the choice, we can meet other legendary heroes on the journey.
Before each situation, the player will choose a small group based on the level they will need. We equip the character’s gear and begin the journey. There will be forks that branch through each mission, so if we prepare a strong group of characters, we will be able to go more side streets and participate in more fights, thereby getting more rewards.
The player can drive enemies into danger so archers can take their lives, or upgrade their heavily armored tank and crush them. Party characters can suffer injuries that prevent them from completing quests for a long time; If things go bad and the player doesn’t pay attention to the character’s condition, they can pee on the spot.
An overview of the game as a whole is that, allowing you to rebuild the kingdom of Camelot, recruit new heroes and build up resources to help with quests. The player can put captured bandits to work, help upgrade the castle, or use the execution ground to deter others.
This is not a game from a well-known studio (NeocoreGames is perhaps best known for Van Helsing, although the studio has also developed many other games). The opening moments are cinematic and the atmosphere is tense, looking like a heavy metal music video.
Although it is a reference from a familiar document (the legend of King Arthur), it is still very different, the battle strategy is good and there is a balance between risk and reward. However, there are still a few frame rate and voiceover issues that need tweaking in the final release.
