MELBOURNE, VICTORIA - August 30, 2016 - Armello, the award-winning digital board game from League of Geeks, releases today on Xbox One for $19.99 / €19.99 as part of Microsoft's Summer Spotlight program. The Usurpers Hero Pack, Armello's first DLC, simultaneously launches on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Windows, Mac and Linux via Steam for $9.99 USD / €9.99.
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, today's content drop guarantees you will have a new experience, and with the talent seen in our community, you're sure to have competition,"
