We arrive in Albion, AD 490. Once spirits of both light and darkness ruled the land, now tribes of Britons stand alone as Saxon invaders threaten the vulnerable shores. But that’s the least of their worries, the Old Gods are returning from the shadows, bringing their magic with them.

Albion: The Legend of Arthur pushes friendships and family loyalties to the test in a world of warlords, witchcraft, heroism and betrayal as we join Arthur on an adventure like no other and witness the birth of one of our greatest legends.

If you want to escape for a few hours to ancient Briton and just lose yourself in an excellent re-forging of the story of Arthur then this is a fine way to do it. It’s worth noting that if you’re looking for something like that wonderful old Disney film and a very traditional telling of Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table then this isn’t it. This is much more along the lines of Cornwell’s “Last Kingdom” series, a gritty re-imagining of events that might have lead to the legends that we know today.
