The Bard's Tale IV: Barrows Deep

inXile Entertainment has released a new trailer for The Bard’s Tale IV: Barrows Deep highlighting the game’s dynamic, turn-based combat.

Here is an overview of combat, via inXile Entertainment:

Tactical positioning can spell the difference between winning and losing in The Bard’s Tale IV: Barrows Deep. Every adventurer is equipped with active and passive abilities, making each a vital part of your band of warriors. You can use unique skills that synergize to create devastating combos: for example, Bards can sing songs to make enemies more susceptible to damage. Charged attacks offer another effective means to finish off enemies, but watch out, because they can be interrupted by foes with similar attacks. And that’s just the beginning! As you travel through Caith, you’ll discover new enemy types, offering uniquely different challenges that require new tactics. There are countless ways to turn defeat into victory depending on how you approach each situation.

The Bard’s Tale IV: Barrows Deep is due out for PC on September 28, and for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One later in 2018.
