Have you seen The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance on Netflix? I haven’t, and now I’m wondering if I’m the only one… Either way, there’s a new RPG coming soon and it’s based on the Netflix Original Series, so if you’ve seen the show and want more, this is for you.
En Masse Entertainment has today launched pre-orders for The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics, which is releasing on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC on February 4th. The cost is $19.99/£16.99/€17.99, and for your pre-order money you’ll get your digital copy of the game and… that’s it. According to the press release, there are no extra goodies for pre-ordering the game, and as it’s not quite live yet on my region’s PSN store, I can’t even tell you if there’s a discount. What I can tell you is that there’s a trailer up above and it’s worth a look if you’re into this Netflix program, whatever it is. I’ve not even had it suggested to me by Netflix’s annoying algorithms. Odd.
“The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics reimagines the world of The Dark Crystal as a tactical strategy game. In turn-based combat, players lead the Gelfling resistance by using guile, planning, and cunning to outwit their foes. Units can be customized with gear, abilities, and an expansive job system to tackle more than 50 unique missions in the game. During battles, dynamic events and environmental effects that create tactical opportunities or put the Gelfling forces at risk, necessitating rapid changes in strategy to keep players on their toes. These variables, alongside a wide range of different characters and party compositions, make for battles that are highly replayable. After completing the game, players can take on a New Game+ mode that offers even more challenge. Missions are wrapped in a narrative that will see players re-live key moments from the Netflix Original Series, while also experiencing never-before-seen events that reveal more about the world of Thra and its inhabitants.”
