On the same day, Daedalic plans to release an important update for the original Blackguards game, which will bring important balancing improvements.
Untold Legends sheds new light on the background and heritage of Takate, the former slave and arena fighter, who joins the player’s party in chapter 2 of the original Blackguards. Takate’s home is in the foothills of the rainforests in Southern Aventuria, where most of the native people of the Moha originate from.
In Untold Legends, players will learn how Takate became a slave gladiator, and get the chance to take revenge on all the slavers that caused so much pain to him for much of his life.
Untold Legends will offer new weapons, several new quests, more than 10 new battle maps and 25 previously unreleased music tracks.

Simultaneously with the Untold Legends DLC, Daedalic releases patch 1.3 for the original Blackguards game. The patch will majorly improve the game’s balancing system, giving players better insights into their characters’ hit chances, and how to improve these. Showing the Hit Chance during battles is no longer depending on the talents Warcraft and Animal Lore, so players will always know the odds when choosing among normal- and special attacks. Also, the new patch will now allow to display a full battle log, including all dice rolls, to allow full transparency of all events while in combat.
Customers, who purchased the Blackguards Contributor’s or Deluxe Editions will receive the DLC’s 25 previously unreleased music tracks for free when installing patch 1.3, even when not purchasing the DLC.
