SEATTLE – September 11, 2019 – En Masse Entertainment, a player-focused publisher dedicated to delivering great games and service, today released a new trailer highlighting the authentic translation of key characters in The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics, the multiplatform strategy RPG developed by BonusXP and in collaboration with Netflix. The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics will launch in late 2019 for Nintendo SwitchTM, the PlayStation®4 entertainment system, Xbox One family of devices including the Xbox One X, and PC/Mac.

 

The new trailer features a close look at how the team is faithfully recreating major characters including the Chamberlain, the calculating Skeksis, Aughra, the wise and ancient embodiment of Thra, and Deet, an unassuming caretaker of animals who is key to the Gelflings’ hopes for rebellion, showing off each character in action. The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance debuted on August 30, 2019 exclusively on Netflix.

About The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics

The expanded world of Thra in The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics contains diverse territories, each offering the ability to learn more about the Gelfling clans and their histories. In turn-based combat, players lead the Gelfling resistance by using guile, planning, and cunning. Units can be customized for specific fights with gear, upgradeable abilities, and an expansive job system. Dynamic events on the battlefield, which can create opportunities or put the Gelflings at a disadvantage, may necessitate rapid changes in strategy to keep players on their toes. Thus, battles are highly replayable, and after completing the game players can also challenge a New Game+ mode with more difficult versions of the battles.

 

Fans are finally be able to re-visit the fantasy world of Thra in The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance following its worldwide debut on August 30, 2019. The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics will arrive on game platforms later in 2019.
