Asmodee Digital Showcases Gloomhaven’s First Four CharactersGloomhaven will also launch in Early Access on PC this summer!
Asmodee Digital, a leader in digital board game entertainment, is thrilled to begin showcasing the character roster of Gloomhaven.
As a board game, Gloomhaven has raised 4,4 million USD on Kickstarter thanks to more than 45 000 backers. Acclaimed by both board game players and critics, the Gloomhaven board game achieved the highest rating on BoardGameGeek and won 6 Golden Geek awards including “Board Game of the Year” in 2017.
In the digital adaptation of Isaac Childres’ ultimate strategic board game, developed by Flaming Fowl Studios, you play as a squad of 2-4 mercenaries, in a world of darkness and trials. Gloomhaven is a balanced mix between Tactical, RPG and dungeon-crawling. Its legendary unforgiving difficulty rewards only the best strategic-thinking players.
Seasoned adventurers will have to wisely weigh all their decisions, as every choice in Gloomhaven has impactful consequences. The turn-based tactical dark fantasy game rewards strategic planning and thinking, not luck. Players will have to master 17 playable characters featuring more than 1 000 unique abilities. Different sets of abilities allow unique build paths for each character leading to multiple team synergies in order to face more than 50 different enemies. From gloom, only greed and death emerge!
If you survive your perilous journeys, you might have the opportunity to expand your team, improve your abilities or fill your coin purse. You’ll need these things to overcome the hordes of malicious beasts, demons, and whatever else may find itself in your path towards victory and riches. No decision should ever be made lightly, so choose with caution!
At Asmodee Digital we are huge fans of the original board game and we want to offer the best digital Gloomhaven experience possible. That’s why the game will first start in Early Access, allowing us to fine-tune and improve the game based on the players’ feedback. At Early Access start, the players will be able to experience its adventure mode, featuring rogue-like mechanics, unique to the PC platform.
During Early Access, content will be added on a regular basis, expanding the enemies and characters’ rosters, environments and adventures. Later, players will be able to dive into the original solo-player 95 missions-long board game campaign that can also be played with friends via online Cooperative play.
