The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics ps4, switch, Xbox One, PC/Mac versions are coming this next February 2020. This multi-platform RPG is, of course, based on the acclaimed movie from 1982 and the Netflix TV series from 2019. The game re-imagines that same dark fantasy world, and brings it in an awesome tactical RPG strategy environment, which is best seen with your own eyes…
The game is being developed by BonusXP, which is a Texas-based indie studio with extensive gaming experience and a flavor of ‘by gamers for gamers’ sort of stuff. The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics release date is set for February 4th, 2020, and as mentioned it will come as a multiplatform tactical RPG. The game is announced for PC/Mac, ps4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch but it is still unclear if all platforms will be covered on the same date.
It will bring 15 characters, all unique in their playstyle, skills, and abilities, but there are also hundreds more possible combinations of units as a part of the whole strategy extravaganza. The game will offer a wide variety of gameplay styles, which everyone can tailor-fit for themselves. The fantasy world coming to us if named Thra, familiar to fans of the source material, and our goal will be to unite the seven clans of Gelfling in a battle against the evil Skeksis. This will be a side story that runs parallel to the story of the Netflix Original Series, which got pretty good ratings earlier this year.
This is not the first time BonusXP is working on a title that is derived from a popular TV series, as the studio also worked on Stranger Things 3: The Game, and their roots go back to Civilization and Age of Empires, old school classic acclaimed games. The game’s publishing is being handled by En Masse Entertainment from Seattle, Washington, US. It is thus far unknown if this game will get a mobile version, like Stranger Things did, but it sure does cover a lot of platforms right from the start.
