Armello will launch on Xbox One to coincide with first major DLC

Fantasy digital board game Armello is set to release for Xbox One on August 30th which is the same day that the first major DLC will arrive for Armello on all platforms for $9.99.

The first major is named Usurpers Hero Pack and includes 4 new playable characters (one for each of the four animal clans) and a new Clan ring for each animal clan.

“Launching Armello last September was never the end goal, just a milestone. The Usurpers Hero Pack expands Armello’s depth of strategy and diversified playstyles.” said Trent Kusters, co-founder and director of League of Geeks. “We have been overjoyed by the positive reception fans continue to show the game and are not only excited to expand the experience, but to also welcome Xbox players into our incredible community.”

The Usurpers Hero Pack includes:

  • Magna, the Unbroken: A tank-like Wolf Clan member with the Hero Power, “Shield Maiden,” which allows her to reflect attacks. Magna’s high Body and Fight stats in combination with Shield Maiden is ideally suited for players who focus on combat.
  • Elyssia, Wardress of Warrens: A hero of the Rabbit Clan who can permanently fortify settlements with her “Architect” ability, granting Elyssia greater control of the daily gold reward for holding settlements. While not the strongest in straightforward fights, her high Wits stat and ability to monopolize Armello‘s economy make her very dangerous.
  • Ghor, The Wyldkin: A Bear Clan hero whose magic draws strength from forests. His Hero Power, “Conduit,” allows him to cast spells for one less magic per adjacent forest, and enables him to cast to any woodland tiles on the board. This powerful ability, is ideal for stealthy spell play.
  • Sargon, The Death Teller: The latest addition to the Rat Clan has evenly balanced stats, but his Hero Power, “Veil Gazer,” makes him a very appealing choice to cerebral players. Sargon has the ability to see cards before they’re drawn, giving him a strategic advantage over every other character.

Armello is a digital board game that merges the deep tactics of card games with the strategy of table top games, all combined with a character role-playing system. Players take turns exploring a rich world, battling players and vanquishing evil banes, with the goal of claiming the throne from the mad king of Armello.
