The 1992 German RPG Realms of Arkania is being remade. Realms of Arkania: Blade of Destiny is being developed by Crafty Games, and published by UIG Entertainment. It's due to hit the PC sometime in Q2 2013.

The game features a visual overhaul, and today's announcement included a singular screenshot to show the new style.

The game has you attempting to form an alliance to stop the threat of an orcish invasion.
