Big things are afoot for Aussie developer League of Geeks as their digital strategy board game Armello has just received its first major DLC.
The Usurpers Hero Pack adds four new items to the game each providing the corresponding animal clan with a unique bonus. Rainbow quartz provides the Rabbit Clan with +1 magic at every dawn. Tanzanite gives the Rat Clan +1 gold when they escape peril. Rubellite advances the Wolf Clan’s fight by +3 and Aquamarine provides the Bear Clan with +1 moon roll, so long as the player is not in peril.
Alongside the items, four new playable heroes join the fray. Elyssia, Wardress of Warrens, is a master builder with a reputation for getting the job done. Sargon, the Death Teller Is a horror whose trade is secrets from beyond the veil. Magna, the Unbroken is the leader of the Wolf Clan’s most zealous warriors. Ghor, the Wyldkin is a simple bear, with a serious affinity for forests.
That’s only the beginning as Armello has also just launched on the Xbox One, one year after its initial release on PC and PS4. The Usurpers Hero Pack is available for all versions. If you haven’t played Armello, now’s the perfect time to get on ‘board’ (get it?)
