The gaming market is filled with bloody, violent, unpleasant, and terrifying games. And, every now and then, a title full of beauty, light, and lots of love slips through. Today, we’re focusing on one of these latter ones that you’ve probably overlooked amid so many releases.
“The Lost Legends of Redwall: The Scout Anthology” is based on Brian Jacques’ fantastic fantasy books for children. And, as you can guess, a gaming adaptation of these tales is on its way.
The single-player adventure game is a series of six episodic games that tell a new story within the Redwall universe, as they are set before the events of the first book. Therefore, you can play them without having read the books and without having any idea of what they’re about.
Throughout each of the six games, you follow various anthropomorphic animals such as two mice, Liam and Sophia, an otter named Gillig, as well as a mole and a squirrel.
You can use the natural traits of each animal to your advantage. For example, players can use a scent mechanic to help them explore the world and find crucial clues. This can be useful when fighting sea rats or when forced to navigate the complex catacombs of Kotir Castle.
When and on which platforms will The Scout Anthology be released?
The anthology is an enhanced version of all three acts combined. Players will be delighted to see that significant improvements have been made to the game’s lighting and visual effects.
The latest trailer of this anthology series showcases the updated graphics, 25 different mapsnew friends to meet, and thrilling battles throughout the game. If you’re a fan of this fantasy book saga, you’re sure to love it.
The Lost Legends of Redwall: The Scout Anthology will be released on December 1, 2023, for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S. Although it was originally available for Xbox One, the episodic games have been removed from the store, so now it’s only possible to purchase this anthology as a whole.
