The Bard's Tale (2004) Now Out on PS4 and PS Vita!

For all discussion on all the previous Bard's Tale games: the classic 1980s games (Bard's Tale, II: Destiny Knight, & III: Thief of Fate) & the humorous Bard's Tale (2004) spin off.

The Bard's Tale (2004) Now Out on PS4 and PS Vita!

inXile Entertainment is proud to announce that a remastered version of its first title, the action RPG "The Bard's Tale" is now out on PS4 and PS Vita. Featuring doubled resolution for all textures, the game also runs at 4k 60fps. Sharing only a name with the original series, this "Bard's Tale" is instead a comedic send-up of the fantasy RPG genre starring Cary Elwes as the Bard and the late, great Tony Jay as the bemused Narrator of the tale. Thirteen years later, it endures as one of our most popular titles on PC and mobile. Today, we are pleased to return the game to the console realm.

Available now in North America, coming soon to Europe.

Any hope for an Xbox One version? I'd gladly buy it again (for the third time!)

Still buggy, some missions are almost impossible without hours of time and a lot of saves to fall back on. There had better be a patch coming out in the near future, because selling in this state is ridiculous. There's a great game here thats begin weighted down by bugs that people tinkering for new platforms and re-releasing it couldn't be bothered to stomp on.

Supposedly the PS4 version is a port of the mobile version, not of the original PC version: https://www.reddit.com/r/PS4/comments/6 ... emastered/

Is it a cross buy for PS4 and Vita in the UK?

Hi Madyak, it was supposed to be cross-buy for both North America and Europe. Unfortunately, there are a few issues including the way SIEE handles their store which preclude this, meaning that you have to purchase both versions separately.
