Turn-based role-playing game Blackguards will be available to purchase on Nov. 7 via Steam Early Access, three months ahead of its official release, publisher Daedalic Entertainment announced today.

The game will be available to purchase at a lower price pre-launch. The Standard Early Access Edition including all chapters at their earliest and the full game post-release can be bought for $24.99 as one of the three payment options for the game. The Blackguards Early Access Deluxe Edition includes a 150 page artbook, developer interview videos and exclusive wallpapers for $34.99. Finally, the Blackguards Early Access Contributor Edition features the buyer's name in the game credits, the first Blackguards DLC and a copy of point and click adventure game Chains of Satinav for $49.99.
Blackguards will officially launch in late January 2014 for Windows PC and Mac.
