- Complex RPG-like Characters - The character progression system is designed to be as deep as in the traditional RPGs: heroes level upon unique skill trees and the complex loot system provides unique options to fine-tune their tactical capabilities.
- Death is Always Final - Beware! Heroes can die during missions and the treatment of their injuries, curses, diseases takes time. You must manage them at the Round Table accordingly, planning ahead before going into battles. As heroes take time off between consequent missions, management of their injuries and selecting their substitutes are essential components of gameplay.
- A Question of Loyalty - Each hero has a distinctive personality. Settle disputes and grant favors to convince various knights to remain loyal to you. Some of them will observe your decisions closely, and some knights will even have conflicts with each other. It is your job to select heroes that are the best fit for your goals (and each other) at the Round Table. The hero's loyalty is constantly changing through the decisions made by the player – in certain cases, they can ever leave the Round Table and turn against you.

King Arthur: Knight's Tale Heroes
Sir Mordred was the nemesis of King Arthur, destined to battle the Once and Future King in their final duel. He fulfilled his destiny and they both died – or didn’t they?
Sir Lanval led an eventful life, pursuing adventures all over Britannia. He is a knight with a hearty appetite and a boisterous presence.
Sir Pelleas is the stalwart protector of the downtrodden, acting as the embodiment of the very idea that led to the birth of the Round Table in the first place.
Fueled by bloodlust and vengeance, Sir Brunor le Noir wears the tattered coat of his murdered father and aims to fight any threat that comes upon Avalon.
Sir Kay is the late King Arthur's foster brother, one of the finest warriors of the Round Table. In Avalon, he continued to act as Arthur's seneschal in his absence, and most of the knights treated him like their leader.
Sir Balan is a knight of the Round Table, the son of Sir Tewelyn. He believes in the code of chivalry and in his duty to protect the innocent.
Yvain was known as one of the most daring knights of the Round Table in Britannia and his reputation hasn't changed in Avalon either.
