Publisher En Masse Entertainment has released a new trailer for The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance that provides a closer look at three heroes of Thra from the Netflix series in the game, showing off the attention to detail and care the team has taken in recreating their appearances and giving a first look at each of them in action.
The trailer features the following characters:
- Rian of the Stonewood Clan, whose ambition led him to unintentionally uncover the Skeksis’ dark secret and launch his journey to unite the seven Gelfling clans
- Brea of the Vapra Clan, the fiercely independent daughter to the All-Maudra Mayrin with a love for knowledge and determination to do what is right that sets her on a path to discover long-lost secrets of Thra
- Podling, Hup, a fiercely loyal friend with aspirations of being the first Podling paladin armed with deadly spoons
The expanded world of Thra in The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics contains diverse territories, each offering the ability to learn more about the Gelfling clans and their histories. In turn-based combat, players lead the Gelfling resistance by using guile, planning, and cunning. Units can be customized for specific fights with gear, upgradeable abilities, and an expansive job system. Dynamic events on the battlefield, which can create opportunities or put the Gelflings at a disadvantage, may necessitate rapid changes in strategy to keep players on their toes. Thus, battles are highly replayable, and after completing the game players can also challenge a New Game+ mode with more difficult versions of the battles.
The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics will launch on PS4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch later this winter.
