Tainted Grail: The Fall of Avalon will soon be available to fans to play not only as a board game, but also on the gaming screen. Awaken Realms has long been working on a PC adaptation of the cooperative adventure game that was published in German via Pegasus Spiele. In the fourth quarter of 2022, Tainted Grail: The Fall of Avalon should start in Early Access, that's the plan. Now there is a sign of life.

The board game Tainted Grail: The Fall of Avalon from 2019 is considered one of the best of its kind - and one of the top board games ever. Awaken Realms had funded the title through Kickstarter at the time. The crowdfunding for the cooperative adventure game, which is inspired by the Arthurian legend, generated the equivalent of almost six million euros in 2018. It was the top board game project of that year.

Tainted Grail: The Fall of Avalon soon as a video game

Nominated for several awards, including the 2021 French As d'Or - Jeu de l'Année in the expert category, the board game has a firm place in the hearts of fans. When it comes to the Dark Ages, hardly any other title offers such a profound gaming experience.

Awaken Realms Digital has been working on a video game adaptation of the board game for some time. It will be released for PC and, according to the current plan, should start in early access in the fourth quarter of 2022. From then on, fans will be able to play the title and, at best, give the developers feedback. The project is not about a 1:1 conversion of the board game, rather Tainted Grail: The Fall of Avalon is a real video game. The open world title is even traded as a successor to Skyrim.

Tainted Grail: The Fall of Avalon, however, is much darker than Bethesda's role-playing game about dragons and dragon slayers. Otherwise, the information about Tainted Grail: The Fall of Avalon is sparse: the story follows from the template. Players roam the island of Avalon, cursed after the death of King Arthur. In search of the oaradies, hikers still get stranded there again and again.

Awakens Realms Digital has a big task ahead of it. However, the project can be lifted, after all, the developers had already landed a small hit with the role-playing roguelike mix Tainted Grail: Conquest. The game received over 90 percent positive reviews on Steam.

Exactly when the video game version of Tainted Grail: The Fall of Avalon will go into early launch is unknown. With the fourth quarter of the year, Awaken Realms Digital only roughly limits the launch in the new trailer. It could be sometime from October. At least there could be a clever plan behind the planned date: With the start of the SPIEL'22 in Essen the developers could present the games project to an international, but above all suitable, target group. So you may be aiming for the start of early access at some point around the world's largest trade fair for parlor games - that would be from October 6th to 9th.
