Bard's Tale, The - Remastered and Resnarkled - Limited Run #289 - PlayStation 4
A self-proclaimed "quest for coin and cleavage", The Bard's Tale is an action RPG that is more of a whimsical take on role-playing games than a remake of the classic series. As the Bard, players can fight off hordes of foes with blade and bow, and summon companions through magical Bard Songs. Leveling up allows the player to raise the character's main attributes and invest specialization points in the different types of weapons he can use. Magical companions must be sought out and then summoned during battles. After being summoned, they act pretty much like AI-controlled party members; some of them specialize in physical attacks and offensive spells, while others can heal the hero.
Bard's Tale ARPG: Remastered and Resnarkled Coin & Cleavage Edition on physical disc for the PlayStation 4. Standard edition is limited to 1,800 copies available worldwide. Region free.
