When The Bard’s Tale IV, a successor to the original 80s RPG trilogy, was released in 2018, it stood as a love letter to the old RPG classics of earlier days. In a few short months, you can play that love letter in its expanded and improved form.
The Director’s Cut is coming fully stocked with more enemies, weapons, and character customization options, a new end-game chapter to the story, additional difficulty settings, and a whole host of improvements to the game’s balance and interface.
While The Bard’s Tale IV originally only released on PC, The Bard’s Tale IV: Director’s Cut will release digitally on Xbox Game Pass, PlayStation 4, and PC on August 27. Physical copies of the game for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will release on September 6. If you already on the base game on PC, you will receive the Director’s Cut as a free update.
