BonusXP and En Masse Entertainment have released a new trailer for their upcoming turn-based tactics game, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics.
The new trailer, as seen above, shows the game’s main characters: Rian, Brea, and Hup. Each of them are from the Netflix series the game is based on, and the trailer shows how their designs were recreated for the video game.
Here’s a rundown of the game:
Lead the Heroic Gelfling to Restore Light to the World of Thra!
The highly anticipated Netflix series, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, comes to life as a thrilling tactical strategy game! In the Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics, fans will have an opportunity to experience the fantasy world of Thra by playing through–and going beyond–the events of the series. Players will even encounter never-seen-before playable characters, stories, and environments.
Over the course of 80 unique turn-based campaign battles taking place across the world of Thra, players will recruit new allies and customize their forces by assigning them jobs and outfitting them with new equipment.
- Continue the Story in an Expanded World of Thra – Delve deeper into the legend of The Dark Crystal, learning more about the Gelfling clans and their histories across more than 5 diverse, modular territories. Choose from over 15 character jobs and play through reimagined and brand-new battles against the malicious Skeksis, and help lead the proud Gelfling to victory.
- Gelfling Tactics – Devise unique ways for the outmatched Gelfling to fulfill their prophecy in multi-layered, turn-based tactical combat. Units can be customized for specific fights with gear, upgradable abilities, and a job system. Use guile, planning, and cunning to overcome superior foes!
- Highly Replayable – Replay finished battles to earn full marks, or replay the entire game! Once completed players can challenge a New Game+ mode, keeping all progress from their first playthrough to re-experience more difficult versions of the battles.
- Rich, Dynamic Environments – The world of Thra is a living, unpredictable environment as dangerous as it is beautiful. Dynamic events on the battlefield, which can create opportunities or put the Gelflings at a disadvantage, can necessitate rapid changes in strategy.
The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics will be coming to Windows PC, Mac (both via Steam), PS4, Switch, and Xbox One later this year.
