Blackguards, Daedalic Entertainment's turn-based role-playing game, is now available for Windows PC and Mac via Steam, the company announced today.

Discounted to $35.99 and $53.99, the standard and deluxe editions are currently 10 percent off on Steam for the first week of launch. The deluxe edition includes Blackguards, 150-page artbook, soundtrack, digital World Map, developer interview diaries and six wallpapers.

The special edition is available from GOG for $40.49, while Green Man Gaming offers Blackguards for $39.99 and Blackguards: Deluxe Edition for $59.99 (25 percent using voucher GMG25-0YUM5-VKMVU).

Those who bought Blackguards via the Steam Early Access, which rolled out last November and last week, will receive an automatic update including the final version of the game.

Following player feedback collected during the game's Steam Early Access period, the full release of Blackguards will allow players to create their own characters from scratch. The customizable character patch will roll out with the game's release.

The strategy-influenced RPG was originally slated to launch in the third quarter of last year but was delayed to "ensure the highest quality, even if we tread on new ground," according to the Deponia developer.
