Armello Out Now on Xbox One; first major DLC also available on Xbox One & PC

Armello, the award-winning digital board game from League of Geeks, is out now on Xbox One for £14.99 / €19.99 as part of Microsoft’s Summer Spotlight program. The Usurpers Hero Pack, Armello’s first DLC has launched on Xbox One, Windows, Mac and Linux via Steam, and will be coming soon to PS4, priced at £6.99 / €9.99 on all platforms.

To celebrate Armello’s one year anniversary, the base game and soundtrack are 25% off across all platforms until September 5th, 2016.

The Usurpers Hero Pack adds four new clan rings and a new playable character to each of the four existing animal clans, boosting Armello’s hero count from eight to 12. Each character has their own distinct stats and special power, allowing players to find heroes that tailor to their style.

The new heroes include:

  • Magna, The Unbroken – Tank-like member of the Wolf Clan who can reflect opponents’ attacks.

  • Elyssia, Wardress of Warrens – Hero of the Rabbit Clan who builds fortifying walls around settlements.

  • Ghor, The Wyldkin – Bear Clan champion whose magical powers are increased in forests.

  • Sargon, The Death Teller – A legend of the Rat Clan whose cards appear face up when selecting which ones to draw.

Armello merges the deep tactics of card games with the rich strategy of table top and a character role-playing system. Players take turns exploring a vibrant world, battling players and vanquishing evil banes, with the shared goal of claiming the throne from the mad lion king of Armello.

“A year after introducing Armello to the world, the game’s audience is still as active as ever,” said Trent Kusters, co-founder and director of League of Geeks. “Whether you’ve never played a match or you’re a seasoned vet, this content drop guarantees you will have a new experience, and with the talent seen in our community, you’re sure to have competition.”

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
