King Arthur: Legion IX

Release Date Announcement

1

Ave!

We're happy to announce the release date of our upcoming tactical RPG, King Arthur: Legion IX: it will be available on Steam first in about a month, more precisely on May 9, 2024! The game is set on the same Avalon you might know from our previous dark fantasy title King Arthur: Knight's Tale, but instead of Mordred, it follows Gaius Julius Mento, the tribune of the infamous Legion IX. 

You can enjoy this game as a standalone experience, however, if you missed out on Knight's Tale, now is a great time to learn more about it as it's on sale (60% off) on the Steam Turn-Based Thursday Fest.

We have prepared a trailer for our announcement of the date as well, here it is:

A new threat looms over Avalon as the long-lost, infamous Ninth Legion of Rome has set foot on the mythical island. Their commander, the fallen hero, Gaius Julius Mento was granted a demonic legion by their dead emperor, Septimus Sulla to find a way out of Tartarus. But when they accidentally arrive to the magical realm of the Lady of the Lake, Gaius Julius Mento decides to subjugate the island and establish Eternal Rome there. First, however, he must gather his lost legion…


MAIN FEATURES

A Role-playing Tactical Adventure 
Experience a unique hybrid between turn-based tactical games and traditional, character-centric RPGs. Manage and control a party of 5-6 heroes to explore and conquer the land of Avalon. Engage in deep tactical combat, tough moral choices, hero management, and the rebuilding of Nova Roma.

Prove Your Worth as a Tactician
Every little move and every decision matters. Use covers, traps, flanking and an in-depth overwatch and opportunity system and turn the entire battlefield to your advantage like a master tactician. Sometimes meticulous planning, sometimes charging simply to combat will be the key to victory. The only difference between a successful or a failed quest may depend on the composition of your party only!
 
Heroes Straight from the Abyss
Legion IX introduces six unique heroes who have risen from the Abyss to conquer the mythical land of Avalon. Level up, gain skill points and unlock unique skill trees. Loot, equip and craft hundreds of artefacts and create the deadliest fighting force that has ever set foot on Avalon.
 
Wide Variety of Abilities
Use unique skills, Ultimate Skills and World Abilities to overcome the toughest challenges during your quests in Avalon. Take risks and explore various tactical options as heroes don't face permanent death at the end of the missions. Test your skills in different difficulty modes, from laid-back storytelling to brutal, unforgiving battles.
 
Not Built in a Day
Build up and expand the city of Nova Roma. Make sure that your stronghold has the right facilities for your heroes that prepare them for different quests. But beware! Resources are scarce and you have to manage Nova Roma thoughtfully to keep it afloat.

Regain Your Humanity
Your decisions have far-reaching consequences, influencing both gameplay and narrative. Through your actions, Gaius will either restore his humanity, or forever be transformed into a demon.

Make sure to put King Arthur: Legion IX on your wishlist before launch. Like Knight's Tale, Legion IX is also set to release on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S|X in the future. Both the PC and the console versions of Knight's Tale have received the 2.0 overhaul and numerous improvements, so make sure to check them out if you haven't. Thank you for your support!

Onwards to Nova Roma!
