King Arthur: Legion IX -

A Brief Summary



On the 9th of May, 2024, King Arthur: Legion IX will be released on Steam, which means there are only two days left. Before that date, we would like to give you a quick summary of the game, with helpful links to the more detailed blog posts about various features.

King Arthur: Legion IX is a dark fantasy tactical role-playing game that takes place in the universe of King Arthur: Knight's Tale. It tells the story of an undead Roman Legion, its members traverse the Underworlds of Tartarus and end up in a strange Avalon, twisted by the mad nightmares of Arthur. See our latest trailer to get a feel for the atmosphere:

The protagonist of the game is Gaius Julius Mento, the tribune of the Ninth Legion, and he will be able to tackle various missions in a party of up to six combatants that could include the Flamen of Orcus, the Flamina of Vesta, the Praetorian, Sicarius, or the Centurion - you will get to know them better through dialogue and exploration. 

As he travels Avalon searching for the lost members of the Legion, Gaius makes various decisions that will push him towards a morality stance, he could either embrace his demonic urges or he might regain his humanity. It's all up to you, the player! These decisions will drastically alter the narrative, including the endgame portion.

There is also the matter of establishing a flourishing Roman colony on Avalon: you will rebuild Nova Roma and set out to make it the centre of a potential Eternal Rome. This city will serve as your headquarters, here you can build and upgrade various buildings (like the Lararium) that will provide items, bonuses and titles for your characters. You should make preparations here between missions to ensure swift victory against all kinds of enemy types, for Avalon is full of dangerous mythical creatures and vicious opportunists. Not to mention, the Lord of Camelot is still around...

In essence, you will get a complete new story with a 30-hour campaign, a challenging endgame mode, multiple side events, arena fights, and the branching story also encourages players to go for an alternate playthrough. It is a standalone release at the starting price of $19.99, and while this game does not require owning and knowing King Arthur: Knight's Tale, returning players will certainly benefit from it (prepare for a little surprise at launch). The game will also come to consoles in the near future, so stay tuned!
