Daedalic Entertainment writes in to inform us that their turn-based tactical RPG Blackguards is about to have its first DLC, Untold Legends, as well as a major new patch, to be released on March 4. The DLC will be free for those who purchased the "Blackguards Contributor’s Edition"; otherwise you'll be able to buy it for € 4.99/$ 5.99/£ 3.99.

The Blackguards story continues! On March 4th Daedalic will release additional content for its critically acclaimed turn-based RPG - Blackguards. The new DLC, Untold Legends, will offer exciting new battles, additional quests and new story elements, taking the adventure even further. At the same day, Daedalic plans to release an important update for the original Blackguards game, which will bring important balancing improvements.

Untold Legends sheds new light on the background and heritage of Takate, the former slave and arena fighter, who joins the player’s party in chapter 2 of the original Blackguards. Takate’s home is in the foothills of the rainforests in Southern Aventuria, where most of the native people of the Moha originate from. In Untold Legends, players will learn how Takate became a slave gladiator, and get the chance to take revenge on all the slavers that caused so much pain to him for much of his life.

”Untold Legends” will offer new weapons, several new quests, more than 10 new battle maps and 25 previously unreleased music tracks. Priced € 4.99/$ 5.99/£ 3.99, the DLC will be available digitally for purchase through all major download shops such as Steam, GOG, the official Mac App Store and Gamesrocket. Customers who purchased one of the retail editions of Blackguards can acquire the DLC through Gamesrocket.com Customers, who purchased the Blackguards Contributor’s Edition via Steam will receive this first DLC automatically and for free.

Simultaneously with the Untold Legends DLC, Daedalic releases patch 1.3 for the original Blackguards game. The patch will majorly improve the game’s balancing system, giving players better insights into their characters’ hit chances, and how to improve these. Showing the Hit Chance during battles is no longer depending on the talents Warcraft and Animal Lore, so players will always know the odds when choosing among normal- and special attacks. Also, the new patch will now allow to display a full battle log, including all dice rolls, to allow full transparency of all events while in combat.​

Have a few screenshots from the DLC:




The DLC doesn't seem to show up on Steam yet, so I'll just link to the base game here.

Blackguards doesn't have a huge balancing problem, so hopefully they can get this patch out soon.

A few more patches like this and they might have something that compares favorably with Knights of the Chalice.

why are they releasing dlc about the most boring character?

i was rhetorically referring to the general game media crap, and the weirdness of seeing that posted on codex, as if those words have meaning here.
which they probably do since codex is inexorably turning into kotaku-ign clone.

One question though: is this going to be a single-character expansion, or will you be in charge of a squad?
you can't be bothered to even look at the screenshots but expect people to bring up the energy to answer you?

These huge patches and DLC packs are the reason why I usually wait a few months after release before buying games.

Also, my general lack of free time which is the reason I always have a huge backlog of mature games to play.

I guess making LPs is one of the reasons I lack free time, so You have a point.
