The newly-released King Arthur: Knight’s Tale update and DLC adds in a new optional Skirmish mode to the game, bringing three mini-scenarios. There’s The Trials of Sir Tewelyn, which is free, and two others that are not. They are The Painted Devils and Rogues and Renegades, which can be acquired for $4.99 each. That’s not even mentioning the new difficulty level added to the game, 3 achievements for each mini-scenario, and other changes and fixes. Let’s discuss them all, shall we?
The new Skirmish mode will give you the chance to play through some new battles. Each of the three mini-scenarios will become increasingly harder, which should provide you a decent enough challenge through one of the five difficulty levels: Easy, Normal, Moderate, Hard or Very Hard.
This brings us to the new difficulty: Moderate. It’s harder than normal but less so than Hard, which had some players running into “hopeless” situations. This will probably entice me to go back and restart my playthrough, because Normal was pretty easy and I got obliterated on Hard mode. Newcomers to the genre, beware.
As for the mini-scenarios themselves, The Trials of Sir Tewelyn focuses on the unkillable knight, Sir Tewelyn, while The Painted Devils focuses on the Picts. Last but not least, Rogues and Renegades follows a band of rogue renegades, which makes sense considering the title.
The rest of the update isn’t nearly as memorable. Three achievements have been added for the three mini-scenarios, and some balancing was done for three separate missions. Bug fixes for descriptions, banters, skills, and more have all been applied in this latest King Arthur: Knight’s Tale update, which, despite being reasonably unremarkable, is the biggest the game has seen yet. The last big one, The Chained God, came out in June, and was already fairly impressive, and this on top of it makes the current 35% sale price ($29.24) on Steam a great buy if you’re into the turn-based strategy genre.
