Try Before You Buy: Blackguards Gets Free Demo on Steam

With Pillars of Eternity on the horizon, I’ve been jonesing to play a new old-school fantasy RPG. Looks like Blackguards fits the bill, especially now that it’s getting a lengthy free demo on Steam.

Currently in Steam Early Access, Blackguards is a turn-based tactical RPG set in The Dark Eye universe. I’ve never actually stepped foot into that particular fantasy world, but I’m told it’s a big deal in Europe. The full final game is set for launch on Friday for $25 and Daedelic Entertainment is doing us all a solid by offering an extended demo starting today (should be ready for download once Steam updates at 1 p.m. Eastern).

The Blackguards demo will feature the entire first chapter of the RPG, which Daedelic says will offer six to eight hours of gameplay. That should help make everyone’s buying decision easier, no? Also of note: our saves in the demo will carry over to the full game, so we won’t have to retread old ground. Nice touch.
