Open-World RPG Tainted Grail: The Fall of Avalon launches for Steam Early Access in Q4 2022​

Awaken Realms Digital has announced that open-world RPG Tainted Grail: The Fall of Avalon will launch for Steam Early Access in Q4 2022.

Tainted Grail is something of an interesting case. A different, roguelike title - Tainted Grail: Conquest - was released in May 2021. Tainted Grail: Conquest was originally built as a separate game mode for The Fall of Avalon, serving as a testing environment for the developers. However, it soon became a full game of its own. More details from the developers can be found in the Steam forum thread.



The world of Tainted Grail is a gritty, dark reimagination of Arthurian legends — an epic dark fantasy setting in which humans arrived at the cursed island of Avalon in search of paradise, only to find a hellish land tainted by the Wyrdness — a mysterious force warping the reality in a chaotic manner.

Tainted Grail: The Fall of Avalon is an open-world RPG full of complex quests in which your decisions matter and your choices are respected. A vast world full of monsters, fallen heroes, and exciting places to discover. It will offer a dark storyline that will require players to balance the shades of gray and no good answers — paired with great freedom granted to the player and plenty of possible choices.
King Arthur is dead and all the myths and legends are falling – humans living at Avalon are desperately trying to find new ways of life and things to believe in. The plague of Red Death and the spreading of the Wyrdness are not helping. The time is running out and multiple factions have their own plan for the future of the island…

Tainted Grail: The Fall of Avalon is a reimagination of the board game published under the same name. It was the most successful Kickstarter campaign of 2018 — funded at over $6,2M — and the game is held in high regard by the board gaming community (currently at the 80th place of best board games of all time as voted by the community of Board Game Geek).

The card game is good (if saddled with poor performance), but that trailer isn't doing anything for me. Awkwardly moving through so-so environments with jerky FPS camera movement is not the way to go.
