Play OverviewPlay Overview

Pendragon (2020) is a character-driven strategy game, from the creators 80 Days and Heaven’s Vault where you rally the Knights of the Round Table to reach Arthur before he meets his fate.

It's a combination of turn based battles and world navigation. You are likely to die quite often, but then you start the adventure again with gained knowledge and characters. Your actions determine how the story goes.

Will Sir Lancelot be reunited with Queen Guinevere? Will she spurn him, or embrace him? Will Sir Kay ever forgive Sir Gawaine for siding with Sir Mordred? Can Morgana le Fay be trusted? Where is Merlyn? Who lies buried in Mordred’s graveyard? Who is the archer in the woods? What has become of Excalibur?

At the centre of the game are turn-based battles with simple yet strategic combat. You must use your position to your advantage and influence both the story and the battle. Both play out turn by turn on the field of battle itself, driven by your decisions - and those of your enemies.

Our examiner, Andy Robertson, first checked Pendragon 3 years ago. It was re-examined by Jo Robertson and updated a year ago.
