First Gloomhaven gameplay reveal was shown on Twitch last week and has reached more than 110,000 views. According to Asmodee Digital, beta test of the game will launch on July 17th.
During a recent livestream, devs showed off gameplay for the multiplayer “tactical, RPG and dungeon crawling” experience based on the board game. Two to four players set out in an unforgiving “world of darkness and trials” where they need a mind of strategic player to reach the goal.
“If you survive your perilous journeys, you will gain the opportunity to upgrade your abilities, purchase gears and recruit new mercenaries. Those squad enhancements will help you to overcome malicious bandits, hordes of beasts, horrifying demons, or whatever else may find itself blocking your path. Nevertheless there’s not just one way to crush your foes and no decision should ever be made lightly, so advance with caution!”
As a board game, Gloomhaven has raised $4.4 million 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.
Gloomhaven’s beta test will be out with the same gameplay as the board game, adding a new unique rogue-like mode. The campaign mode will release along with the official launch of the game.
