Preview: Blackguards 2 (PC)

 Daedalic Entertainment's turn-based strategy Blackguards released earlier this year to middling reviews. We reviewed the game ourselves and didn't find much to like about it, criticizing many of the features and stating that a myriad of problems push the game into the realm of mediocrity. Blackguards 2 is aiming to improve those problems while keeping the core of the gameplay untouched.
