The Bard's Tale IV: Barrow Deep - Announcement

July 17, 2018

InXile Entertainment have announced a release date for upcoming fantasy RPG, The Bards Tale IV: Barrows Deep. Releasing on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, MAC and Linux on 18th September, fans of dungeon crawlers will have a new entry into the series to look forward to.  




Taken from press release: 


A return to the series’ roots, The Bard's Tale IV: Barrows Deep takes players back to the fantastical world of Caith for a classic single-player, first-person, party-based role-playing adventure rich in exploration, devious puzzles and combat. Recruit and level up a party of six renegade heroes and rise against the dark powers that have corrupted the realm. Dive deep into dangerous, maze-like dungeons, solve challenging riddles and quests, and defeat magical beasts, creatures and more in dynamic phase-based battles. 




The Bard's Tale IV: Barrows Deep’s vibrant, interactive world is powered by Unreal Engine 4 and 3D photogrammetry to capture the atmosphere and detail of Scottish architecture and geography. Players will discover an engaging storyline from acclaimed writer Nathan Long (Wasteland 2) featuring beautiful music – composed by Ged Grimes (Simple Minds) and accompanied by some of the world’s top Gaelic singers – that plays directly into the game itself. 


The newest chapter in the hugely influential The Bard’s Tale franchise, which first premiered in 1985, The Bard's Tale IV: Barrows Deep arrives in time for the 30th anniversary of The Bard’s Tale III: Thief of Fate, which was featured in the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s The Art of Video Games exhibit. 




For anyone who enjoys a fantasy world to explore, dungeons to loot and RPG mechanics, The Bards Tale IV is sure to whet the appetite, and Kickstarter backers are surely in for a treat. Go and place that pre-order and wait as patiently as you can.
