The Bard's Tale IV: Director's Cut eyes an August release


Includes new dungeons alongside various improvements

Developer inXile Entertainment has announced that The Bard's Tale IV: Director's Cut will be releasing on August 27, 2019, for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Improving on every aspect of the title, this new release will not only include a brand new final chapter but directly address aspects of the game that were criticized on launch. Players can expect to see new enemies, weapons, items, classes, gender creation options, and "thousands of fixes and improvements."

While no details of the expanded story have been given, this looks to wrap up the lackluster conclusion of the original by answering what is happening in Haernhold. inXile is teasing hours of new content, not to mention the expanded finale that should better conclude the plotline of Bard's Tale IV.

When Destructoid's Patrick Hancock reviewed The Bard's Tale IV last year, he walked away very unimpressed. As he put it, "The interesting puzzles and fantastic music are not worth suffering through the bugs, lackluster models, and mediocre combat and skills." While things have improved since launch, this new Director's Cut looks to take that even further. Hopefully, fans get what they want, because the initial game did look rather promising.
