Black Legend

Warcave have announced that Black Legend will be playable in the following languages: English, French, German, Spanish, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Dutch, Japanese, and Korean.

Also, here’s some more details and the list of key features for the game:

In Black Legend, your team of mercenaries’ survival will depend on 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 the madness inflicting fog that shrouds the streets. Unlock fifteen different classes from Duelist to Landsknecht to Marauder and cross train different skills to create your perfect team.

  • Strategy-Focused Gameplay: Approach each combat with a tactical focus, where unit placement, ability combos, and well-chosen attacks are key to survival. Black Legend focuses on old school strategy vibes, but without the 95% chance misses.
  • Explosive Combos: Mix up your ranged and melee combat by using alchemy for a wide array of explosive effects. Combine stacks of four different alchemic attacks to injure, poison, and debilitate your foes, but be warned, they will do the same to you.
  • Extensive Character Customization: Build your mercenary band with a wide array of classes, each with unique abilities. Improve each of your mercenaries with new weapons, armor, and trinkets, and create your own ability sets by equiping cross-class abilities.
  • Choose Your Difficulty: For those who wish to see the story, the path can be gentle. For those who wish for difficulty, even the slightest mistake will be greatly punished.
  • Historic Enemies: Black Legend fills the city of Grant with creatures from Belgian, Dutch, and German folklore like nekkers, Halewijn, Witte Wieven and OId Red Eyes.
  • An Engaging Story: Dive into narrative through environmental storytelling, colorful NPCs, and rich set pieces.
  • An Entire City to Explore: Free-exploration lets you investigate the many alleys and streets in the city of Grant. Different districts host a wide variety of architecture and environments — you never know where you’ll discover a hidden path, a treasure trove of new items, hidden quest, or recruitable character.
