En Masse Entertainment has announced that it will be in charge of publication duties for The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics, a multiplatform strategy RPG that is based on the upcoming Netflix series. The game will be released for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC/Mac.
In The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics, players will return to Thra to lead the heroic Gelfling as they seek to restore light to the world and fulfill the prophecy. Over the course of 80 unique, turn-based campaign battles, players will recruit new allies and customize their forces, opposed at every step by the malevolent Skeksis.
The expanded world of Thra in the game 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 Netflix series will begin on August 30th and the game will be released later in 2019.
