The Bard's Tale IV is permanently lowering its price in exchange for Steam and GOG wishlists


Up to 25 percent off

With a simple click of your mouse, you could help bring down the price of The Bard's Tale IV: Barrows Deep. In the month leading up to its release, developer inXile Entertainment has launched a unique marketing initiative where players can reap substantial rewards.

Starting today, inXile will track the number of times The Bard's Tale IV is put on users' wishlists on both Steam and GOG. There are cumulative milestones for this initiative. At 100,000 wishlists, the torch from The Darkest Dungeon will be added to The Bard's Tale IV. At 300,000, the price permanently drops from $40 to $35. If it hits 500,000, the price permanently drops to $30 and a new add-on called The Haernhold will release for free.

There's something of a trade-off happening here. Anyone who wishlists will probably end up with a convenient reminder email anytime The Bard's Tale IV goes on sale. It's a savvy tactic that gets the game in front of people now, and, if they put off buying at launch, it gets the game in front of them later too. But, there's an immediate 25 percent price cut and some free DLC. The pros are going to outweigh the cons for most people.
