InXile Entertainment is set to release a new RPG for Sony’s PlayStation VR this year: The Mage’s Tale. The game is an action RPG with lots of dungeons to crawl, magic spells to cast, and nasty buggers to slit and slice with your trusty swords.
The Mage’s Tale has already been out since early 2018 for PC virtual reality headsets, but it will soon be making its way to the PSVR later this year. The developer has since released a brand new trailer for the PSVR version of the game, complete with quotes from previous reviews. You can check out the trailer up above and then have a little read of the game’s summary down below.
I’m not one for RPGs, but as Skyrim VR has shown, you can put me in any virtual world with a sword and I’ll have a bloody good time. Here’s hoping the same is true with The Mage’s Tale.
The corrupt wizard Gaufroi has kidnapped your master, Mage Alguin, and only you have any hope of saving him. You may be an apprentice now, but to save your master, you will need to explore ten deadly dungeons, decipher mind-bending puzzles, avoid terrifying traps, and vanquish hordes of vicious monsters.
Until you are able to wield every elemental power in the palm of your hand, evil remains ascendant! It is your turn now to sling gouts of flame, javelins of ice, arcs of lightning, and swirling tempests! Don your wizard’s robe and begin your Mage’s Tale!
- Collect mystic ingredients, which you can use to craft hundreds of custom spells in your very own Mage’s Workshop.
- Explore the ancient crypts, sewers, and dungeons to discover devious traps and secret rooms hidden around every corner.
- Experience a story that takes place in the same world as The Bard’s Tale series and soon before the events of The Bard’s Tale IV: Barrows Deep!
- The Mage’s Tale is an adventure designed from the ground up to capture the magic of the VR gaming experience.
