Watch: Six Minutes of ‘Mage’s Tale’ Gameplay Shows Real Promise


Mage’s Tale is a VR Action RPG set in the world of classic fantasy RPG The Bard’s Tale. It is being shown at GDC 2017 for the first time on Oculus Rift and Touch and here’s six minutes of gameplay footage to whet your appetite for the title.

As one of six new titles announced at GDC for Oculus platforms, Mage’s Tale is built from the ground up for Oculus Touch. The Action RPG is developed by inXile Entertainment, set in the world of The Bard’s Tale, a classic RPG series. Delving through dungeons, solving puzzles and mastering the arcane arts sounds like a good time; the game promises to deliver 10 hours of gameplay through hand-crafted dungeons littered with secrets. A crafting system that lets you design hundreds of variations of four base spells, all of which are cast with a physical hand motion. While a release date hasn’t been set, inXile plan to launch on Touch first, but will bring the game to other platforms in the future. The game is shaping up well too, as you can see from this 6 minutes of gameplay footage.

Road to VR‘s Ben Lang also spoke to inXile’s David Rogers this week at GDC to find out more about the design ethos behind the game.
