Grab your lute and your finest mug of ale: A brand new chapter of The Bard’s Tale series is coming to a mobile device near you.
Wanderword, the leader in interactive audio entertainment, in conjunction with Xbox Game Studios’ inXile entertainment, are excited to bring a new addition to the award-winning The Bard’s Tale series to smartphones everywhere.
Following its initial release on smart speakers, The Bard’s Tale – Warlocks of Largefearn is now available for iOS and Android via the App Store and Google Play.
“Bringing The Bard’s Tale to mobile platforms will give people from all over the world a chance to experience this exciting adventure.” said Johan Strömberg, Wanderword CEO.
The Bard’s Tale – Warlocks of Largefearn is an RPG that will provide you with hours of immersive gameplay. It takes you from Skara Brae to the small secluded settlement town of Largefearn, where citizens are disappearing under mysterious circumstances – and it’s up to you to unravel the mystery. In keeping with Wanderword’s “heads-up, hands-free” paradigm, the game can be controlled by voice. The available commands have corresponding buttons on the screen for situations where a silent input method is preferable.
“It’s exciting to see how Wanderword has brought The Bard’s Tale to a new medium, staying true to the world and fantasy while exploring new ways to play. We think everyone’s really going to enjoy playing in the Bard’s Tale world in a brand new way.” – inXile entertainment.
