Overall, The Bard’s Tale IV is a rare new game that feels just a little old. People who only care for the newest thing with the newest mechanics might not appreciate the cosy, slightly dusty tenderness of Bards Tale, but it does have this delightful feeling regardless. Even if you’ve never heard of the series, or played RPGs from the nineties, The Bard’s Tale IV: Barrows Deep is a special game not to be quickly dismissed.

Obsidian joining Microsoft Game Studios had been rumored a while ago and after the recent news of the underwhelming Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire sales, the deal seemed obvious.

What do you think of this deal?
