The Bard's Tale IV will return you to Skara Brae for more dungeon-crawling. You'll explore challenging, maze-like dungeons in the same first-person style as the original trilogy.

The new game will be built with the Unreal 4 engine. Photogrammetry will be used to create in-game 3D objects taken from photos of Scottish architecture. The game's music will be inspired by Scottish culture and involve Gaelic musicians. inExile has released a lone promo screenshot from the game.

In The Bard's Tale IV, you'll be confronted by plenty of hostile beasts, monsters and brigands. The game will employ the complex decision-making opportunities of traditional phase-based combat with a constantly evolving enemy strategy, and pacing that will demand your close attention.

A surprise hit in 1985, the original Bard's Tale put Interplay on the map and launched the career of Brian Fargo. inXile has full rights to use everything from the original trilogy, making it possible to create a true sequel that will live up to the rich dungeon crawler heritage the original helped build.
