Inkle Studios has today issued an invitation to an ancient era for all interested to come to Pendragon which they will be releasing on PC.
Described as a character-driven narrative strategy game, Pendragon takes us to the relative uncommon area of Arthurian myth, as the creators of 80 Days, and Heaven's Vault travel to tell us these tales of legend with their own spin. In Pendragon the knights of the round table have splintered, as Sir Mordred used hatred and lies to exploit the fact, that even heroes are people. It is up to you, to rally the knights of the round table and keep the dream of Camelot alive and find Arthur before fate befalls him.
Designed to be highly replayable, like Inkle's past games Pendragon features a branching narrative and melds gameplay and choice. Each turn you take here, every step you take helps shape the story, and no one is safe during the story that emerges. When done, one can take another trip, and different events, different choices, all emerge for you to show another take on this tale.
What is the Pendragon release date?
The Pendragon release date is September 22nd on PC, with versions available on both GOG and Steam. This means it just misses the old Summer release window, and falls into Fall, but that's pretty soon for your trip to the dark ages.
