After the successful Early Access start of Daedalic Entertainment’s Blackguards, the developers don’t keep their players waiting: today the turn-based RPG’s second chapter is available on Steam.
All those who already bought an Early Access-version of Blackguards will receive an automatic update, including the second chapter via Steam.
Early Access allows players to play the first chapters of Blackguards months before the official release and gives a chance to influence the development process, through their feedback based on pre-release builds.
Blackguards will be published chapter by chapter while in Early Access. As of now, the first two parts of the game are available. All five chapters will be made available in the coming weeks.
Daedalic Entertainment offers several packages for interested Early Access participants. In all cases, players will secure access to the final version of Blackguards by paying a lower price compared to purchasing the game after its official release.
Additionally, they have the opportunity to buy exclusive extras that will only be available before the official release.
- For $24.99/£18.99/€24.99, players receive the Standard Early Access Edition of Blackguards, including all chapters for PC at their earliest availability, and the full PC & Mac version of the game after the official release.
- For $34.99/£26.99/€34.99, players receive the Blackguards Early Access Deluxe Edition, an approx. 150 page artbook, and access to developer interview videos and six exclusive wallpapers.
- For $49.99/£29.99/€49.99, the Blackguards Early Access Contributor Edition additionally includes an appearance of the buyer’s name within the game’s credits, as well as the first Blackguards DLC and a copy of the The Dark Eye point & click adventure Chains of Satinav for free.
All additional content will be accessible once it has been completed.
The official release of Blackguards is scheduled for late January 2014. The game will be available for PC & Mac, priced €39.99, further local prices to be announced.
