Knights battle a monstrosity in King Arthur: Knight's Tale

The Early Access King Arthur: Knight's Tale release date has been pushed back to January 26th. Developer NeoCore Games says it needs more time to polish the tactical RPG and make sure it's ready for the early access launch.

Why has the King Arthur: Knight's Tale release date changed?

In a press release, NeoCore Games says it's "very nearly there" in terms of delivering the Early Access version of King Arthur: Knight's Tale. However, NeoCore says there are still a few "bumps" to iron out, hence the delay. The game was originally due to launch in the Steam Early Access program today, but the two-week delay should help NeoCore to ensure "everything is polished and bugs are squashed".

King Arthur: Knight's Tale is a hybrid turn-based tactics and classical character-centric role-playing game. NeoCore describes it as a retelling of classic Arthurian myth infused with more modern dark fantasy tropes, meaning there will be plenty of eldritch horrors and ancient, crumbling castles to explore. The finished game will task you with gathering your Knights of the Round and sending them into battle against ungodly foes. It'll feature permadeath, skill trees, a complex loot system, and over 30 heroes spread across 5 classes to choose from. NeoCore says it's used photoscanning and high-quality motion capture to bring the setting of King Arthur: Knight's Tale to life, so you'll find plenty to love here if you're a fan of Arthurian legend.

You'll be able to get your hands on King Arthur: Knight's Tale when it launches via Steam Early Access on January 26th, barring further delay. A version of the game for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S is also in the works and will follow at a later date.
