Black Legend, the 17th century mercenaries-vs-cultists turn-based tactical RPG from Belgian studio Warcave, is out today. We already saw the game's launch trailer in the release date announcement earlier this month, so I'll just quote the press release before moving on to the reviews.

Geel, Belgium, March 25, 2021—Warcave is thrilled today to launch Black Legend,—the dark, turn-based strategy RPG featuring an intricate alchemy battle system, 15 playable classes and a thrilling story about a bloodthirsty cult—on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. Black Legend is also available for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X via backwards compatibility.

Black Legend is available for all platforms for $29.99 USD, with a 10% discount available on Steam, PlayStation and Switch for the first week, and is available in English, French, German, Spanish, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Dutch, Japanese, and Korean.

In Black Legend, survival depends on your team of mercenaries mastering both strategic combat and the art of alchemy in this dark fantasy world directly inspired by folklore and stories from 17th-century Belgium and the Netherlands. Explore deep into the cursed city of Grant to battle cultists, monsters, and more on your quest to eradicate a madness inflicting fog that shrouds the streets.​

Black Legend's review scores are mediocre across the board, with reviewers disapproving of its unengaging narrative, mazy environments that require lots of backtracking, and overall jankiness. It may not have helped that most of the reviews are from console-centric websites. However, all of them seem to have enjoyed the game's character system and alchemy mechanics.


Those who'd like to check out the latest indie tactical RPG flavor of the month for themselves can grab Black Legend on Steam and GOG for $30, with a 10% launch discount until next week.
