German software and game developer finally announced the release date for The Dark Eye RPG's second installment. "Blackguards 2" is coming on PC and Mac devices on Jan. 20, 2015.

Based on the 1984 tabletop RPG game, created by Schmidt Spiel & Freizeit GmbH and Droemer Knaur Verlag, "The Dark Eye: Blackguards 2"  is reportedly packed with enhancements based on the requests of the game's first installment.

"During the development of Blackguards 2, one major influence of our team was the feedback of gamers and press to the first Blackguard-game," Daedelic Entertainment said in a statement.

The German software firm also said, "We listened to them and added new features, unique enemies, and enhance and improved gameplay." Daedelic then guarantees "Blackguards 2" PC and Mac players will experience more epic and more challenging gaming experience.

"In Blackguards 2, battles will be even more epic, and their handling has been significantly tweaked to make them more comprehensible, but also more challenging," Daedelic Entertainment explained.

Blackguards' sequel will be available worldwide through Steam, GOG and most online stores. The second installment of the hit role playing game is set at $29.99 and a bit more expensive price for Europeans set at €29.99.

"The Dark Eye: Blackguards 2," announced last June, was the second part of Daedelic's first RPG game. The game is German tech firm's first foray outside their common point and click adventure games.

With less than a year of development, "Blackguards 2" was able to have the same release date as its predecessor, which was released during the start of this year as well. The dark RPG game is known for its "plucky characters" that makes it players "booze it up, swear, make lewd remarks and more of that degenerate stuff fit for a party of miscreants."

Like its brother, which was launched in Steams' Early Access, "Blackguards 2" will also be released on the online distributing site along with other online game sites during the start of 2015. Daedelic hopes the game will have better reception compared to the first "Blackguards" game that has relatively positive raves.
