Belgian Folklore-Inspired RPG Black Legend Launches Next Year

September 9, 2020

Belgian developer Warcave has announced its latest project. Black Legend is a turn-based tactical RPG inspired by Belgian and Dutch folklore. It'll launch for current-gen and next-gen consoles as well as PC next year.

What can we expect from Black Legend?

Warcave says Black Legend is a game focusing on "alchemy and old-school strategy" set in a dark fantasy world inspired by 17th-century Belgian and Dutch folk tales. You are the leader of a band of mercenaries in the city of Grant, a cursed metropolis infected by a fog that inflicts madness upon anyone it touches. Alchemist Mephisto has seized control of the city, so it's up to you to battle his fanatical cultists and followers in order to wrest control back. You can check out the announcement trailer for Black Legend below:

According to Warcave, Black Legend features old-school turn-based strategy combat "but without the 95% chance misses". You'll have the opportunity to customize your mercenaries with different classes, abilities, and equipment, and combine those classes for devastating skills and effects. Creatures from Belgian and Dutch folklore like nekkers, Halewijn, and Old Red Eyes will make an appearance, and you'll have free reign of the city of Grant in order to explore it and discover new characters and quests. There's also a choice in difficulty modes for those who want a less punishing, more forgiving strategy experience.

Black Legend will launch for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, the Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch next year. Warcave will doubtless share more details about this game in the coming weeks and months. When we know more, you'll know more.

Dark Souls changed my life, and I'm here to spread the good news. I like pretty much all sorts of games, but I judge everything by its proximity to our Lord and saviour, Dark Souls.
