Blackguards 2 will again be based on the RPG rulebook of The Dark Eye, but it will come along with some revisions, optimisations and simplifications. The gameplay will focus on turn-based battles once more and will now feature fraction-based gameplay-elements where you can can recapture the enemies' territories.
If not in a battle, you have to take care of a lot of quests and the development of your characters. As common in RPGs, the quests will offer optional and alternative plotlines.
Furthermore, Blackguards 2 will have new weapons, armour, enemies and stamina as additional battle resource.
On top of that, Blackguards 2 will involve mechanics that have been requested by the community of the first game, like improved line of sight, cover and formation.
Blackguards 2 is planned to be released in early 2015.
