Default King Arthur: Knight's Tale - Interview @Gamingbolt

March 19th, 2021, 00:46
Gamingbolt interviewed the developers of King Arthur: Knight's Tale about Early Access, combat, story, and more.

What are your big picture plans for King Arthur: Knight's Tale's early access period? How long are you expecting the game to be in early access before its full launch?

We plan to be in Early Access a few months, let's say 3-7 months, but of course it can change a tiny bit. We'll see. We don't have an exact release date yet; it will all depend on how the development goes and what players would like to see in the game.

What can players expect from the game in terms of content updates and fixes and their frequency during its early access period?

We'll release regular updates to the game during this period. These updates will come more or less on a monthly basis and will include new content as well as balance and gameplay changes.

King Arthur: Knight's Tale's blend of classic RPG mechanics and turn-based tactical combats is an interesting choice. Can you talk about how the game harmonizes those two elements, and why you went with this particular combat system for this game?

We wanted to do something different within this genre, and mixing turn-based tactics with RPGs and even with rouge-lite elements seemed like a good idea. Adding RPG elements was obvious from the start, since our previous games were action-RPGs, so why not use the things we learnt making those games. We think that adding random loot, classic character sheets with skills and levels will make pre-planning missions a lot more fun and complex. We decided to do a turn-based game simply because we love this genre and because after numerous action-RPGs we wanted to do something different - but of course, this doesn't mean we won't make action-RPGs in the future.

Thanks Farflame!

Yeah, me too. I never touch anything in EA but what's I've seen in gameplay vids looks promising. And Neocore have made some pretty good games imo. King Arthur: the Role Playing Wargame was pretty cool.

Same, not event thinking about diving into this until it's fully out, patched and well tested/reviewed. In the end I think we'll all have a fine game to enjoy.

On my wishlist as well, I don't mind getting EA games but I have so much going on right now in my gaming backlog (and current log) that I can easily just wait for the full release of this.

I wasn't able to get into their King Arthur games, but I really like Warhammer 40K: Inquisitor - Martyr. In fact I just purchased a bunch of DLC for it.

If you like Martyr you could probably like their Van Helsing games… pretty similar gameplay, but the overall tone is much more humorous, like this:
