This week, Inxile Entertainment’s latest VR title, The Mage’s Tale, will be released on PlayStation VR and HTC Vive.
The Mage’s Tale is set between the events of The Bard’s Tale III: Thief of Fate and the upcoming title, The Bard’s Tale IV. The Mage’s Tale is a VR dungeon crawler promising over 10 hours of content set in the dungeons below Skara Brae.
Welcome, oh apprentice of the mystic arts! The corrupt wizard Gaufroi has kidnapped your master, Mage Alguin, and only you have any hope of saving him. To win the day, you will need to explore ten deadly dungeons – including the maze-like sewers of Skara Brae and the horrific living tombs of the bloodthirsty Charn – decipher mind-bending puzzles, avoid terrifying traps, and vanquish hordes of vicious monsters.
But worry not! You wield raw elemental power in the palm of your hand, allowing you to sling gouts of flame, javelins of ice, arcs of lightning, and swirling tempests, which can finish off any fiend that stands in your way – from the snarkiest goblin to the burliest giant. As you delve deeper into the depths, you will discover and master forgotten secrets, ancient lore, and powerful spell reagents with which you can craft increasingly exotic spells to defeat even greater foes. You may be an apprentice now, but to save your master, this must become your Mage’s Tale.
The Mage’s Tale will be released on Friday, March 23rd for HTC Vive. The PlayStation VR version of the game will be released at a later date.
