Developer League of Geeks has announced that Armello will release on Xbox One on August 30, along with the game's first DLC.
Armello developer League of Geeks has announced that the digital board game will be making its way to Xbox One on August 30. In addition to being released with 12 months worth of updates, battle system changes and new cards will be rolled out across all platforms, along with paid DLC which adds four new characters, one for each of the game's four tribes, via the Usurpers Hero Pack.
Here is a description of the new characters, per the press release:
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.
"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."
Each of the clans will also receive a new equippable Clan Ring, "which can be equipped to provide benefits and powerful boosts to the base stats of a hero."
