Black Cube Games and IMGN.PRO released a new trailer for The Tale Of Bistun as they pay tribute to the Persian culture it's based on. The team took inspiration from a lot of sources to create this brand new story-driven action-adventure game, but the most prominent was from older tales and the people who forged that area of the world, as you can see it come out in both the story and the artwork.

On the craggy slopes of Mount Bistun, a stone carver awakens with no memory of who he is nor how he came to be there. He soon discovers that a blight is squeezing the life out of nature, tainting the local wildlife and turning it hostile. Encouraged by a strange, pleading whisper, the man journeys between the real world and the mysterious place of forgotten memories, known as the Revelations Realm, in search of answers. But a colossal ancient evil is watching, waiting, and is not best pleased that its plans are being disrupted. All the while, an omniscient narrator recounts the man's every step and details his innermost thoughts. But who is he? And how does he know so much about the befuddled stone carver?

  • An ancient Persian myth: The Tale Of Bistun is a compelling tale of sacrifice and self-discovery inspired by the 12th Century poem "Khosrow and Shirin." The story takes place in an exotic world of Persian myth, where magic and divine influences shape all that you encounter.
  • Explore beautiful but blighted lands: As the stone carver, you must traverse the scenic slopes of Mount Bistun to unravel the mystery of your identity and how you came to be on the mountain. Although beautiful, Mount Bistun has been afflicted by a terrible blight, and dangerous creatures wait for unsuspecting adventurers . . .
  • Engrave the past: As you explore the mountain, sculpt statues to remind you of your hazy past. Then, you can return to a hub area to carve out beautiful engravings detailing your past experiences and encounters.
  • Fast-paced combat: Engage in fast-paced, tactical melee combat against a variety of wicked foes based on Persian mythology. If you're in danger of being overwhelmed, unleash a devastating special ability to clear your path.
