NACON, Cyanide and Leikir Studio announced that Rogue Lords is available. The turn-based roguelike game is available now on Steam and the Epic Games Store.
Rogue Lords leads into a dark world inspired by 18th century New England and the Salem witch trials. The devils have returned to the human world to take revenge on the demon hunters who inflicted a heavy defeat on them a decade ago.
About Rogue Lords
Assemble a team of nine notorious geniuses of evil: Dracula, the headless horseman, Bloody Mary, the White Lady, Lilith, Hecate, Baron Samedi as well as Frankenstein and his creature are available in Rogue Lords. The special talents of the disciples of evil can be used and their powers combined in devastating attacks in order to defeat the power of the new sect Sanctua Lumen, who are hunting down their devilish followers.
In-depth gameplay and special mechanics
For each run, a team of three disciples is put together, who are guided through the game using a 3D map, on which events are selected that are to be triggered.
- Turn-based battles in which the disciples face the demon hunters and the Sanctua Lumen
- Interactive events in which the best method must be chosen to give mortals good reasons to fear the disciples of evil
- Encounters with the Grim Reaper, who exchanges collected souls for new relics and skills
Battles and events offer a range of rewards, but these must be carefully selected to match the tactic you want to use.
Use the forces of the devil
Those who bend the rules in their favor must be prepared to sacrifice some of their own health for it. For example, the life points of the disciples and opponents can be changed and strengthening and weakening spells can be exchanged so that they fit our own combat strategy. Portals can even be opened to reach inaccessible areas of the map or to influence the chances of interactive events in our own favor. Mastering this game mechanic is essential to beating opponents at crucial moments. But be careful: everything has its price and when all health is lost, the game is over.
The turn-based battles are demanding and require mastery of various game mechanics. The opponents are numerous, determined and well trained. Fortunately, however, the devil plays by his own rules: new skills can be learned and more disciples unlocked to keep coming back until all mortals are under the rule of the devil.
Rogue Lords is available now on Steam and the Epic Games Store. The title will also be available for Playstation®4, Xbox One and Nintendo SwitchTM in early 2022.
