Tuesday, 23rd February 2021 – Team17 and Heliocentric Studios have opened the gates to roguelite adventure Rogue Heroes: Ruins of Tasos on PC and Nintendo Switch, allowing players from far and wide to venture forth either solo or with up to three friends in local and online co-operative gameplay, and work together to save the land of Tasos from the sinister Titans.
Rest up weary traveller, this launch trailer will prepare you:
Rogue Heroes: Ruins of Tasos takes players on a journey across the land of Tasos and into the depths of challenging, procedurally assembled dungeons located throughout the world. Gems earned during dungeon runs can be used to rebuild your home town of Intori, which in turn grants access to upgrades that can improve your warriors as well as unlocking other classes and equipment.
Players can help each other out in co-operative play, either locally or online, but those who take on the challenge will have their experiences tailored to them, with puzzles and challenges scaling depending on the number of players. Each hero can be customised, along with a selection of classes, all of which have their own abilities and benefits in gameplay, and players wanting a taste of the action can try a free demo on Steam and Nintendo Switch right now.
- Four-player co-op adventuring: Up to four players can explore the lands of Tasos and tackle the dungeons, assisting and reviving each other to earn victory together
- Roguelite dungeon-crawling: Take on procedurally-generated dungeons packed with a variety of monsters, earning gems to spend on upgrades to get further in the next run
- Town and class upgrades: Each run in the dungeon earns heroes gems to spend on upgrades, including the facilities in the town, as well as player abilities and stats
- Classic gameplay reinvented: This is top-down adventuring brought into the modern day with colourful visuals and a number of options for combat, puzzle-solving, and exploration.
Rogue Heroes: Ruins of Tasos is available on all platforms for £15.99 / €19.99 / $19.99.
