Dungeon crawling is still as fun as ever in The Bard's Tale IV: Barrows Deep

July 12, 2018 1 min read

The original Bard's Tale trilogy was developed by Interplay and published by Electronic Arts in the mid-to-late '80s. Despite being hard as nails, that trilogy is generally seen as a hidden gem among classic RPGs. They had incredible music, writing, and addicting dungeon crawling gameplay that kept you pushing forward.

Three decades later, the series is back and I had the chance to play an early preview build of The Bard's Tale IV: Barrows Deepfrom inXile Entertainment. And after spending a little more than seven hours with it, I can safely say the world of Skara Brae inXile Entertainment has crafted is dark, complex, and interesting -- as well as wonderfully written and voice acted. It's a game that has been beautifully updated and reimagined with both modern and classic gameplay conventions that had me willingly explore every inch of its world.
