The Bard’s Tale IV Is Looking Pretty Impressive

Video: inXile, they of Wasteland 2 and Torment: Tides of Numenera, just put out a trailer for their next classic role-playing revival. Bard’s Tale IV is currently on Kickstarter, where it’s already raked in over $US900,000.


  • inXile did a great job with Wasteland 2, I’m more than happy to give them the benefit of the doubt and back them for Bard’s Tale as well, just like I did for Torment: Tides of Numenera (really looking forward to that one!)

  • Yeah, saw this video this as I am backer and get the updates.. it does look rather impressive but seems to be quite open-world looking at the beginning of the clip. Once they get inside it turns into a dungeon crawler.. I’m just not sure where to set my expectations for this one yet.. I’m a backer.. I’ll be getting the game when it’s done.. but yeh.. I’d really like the game to be more like Might and Magic VI: The Mandate of Heaven (even though the others after this shared the open-world approach, I found VI to be the best of all them) with the open-world and dungeon crawler aspects.

  • I backed, I just hope Michael A. Stackpole, legendary sci-fi/fantasy author and game designer who made Bard’s Tale 3 is involved in some way at some point.
