Blightbound Announced, Comes to Steam Early Access in 2020

Blightbound

Devolver Digital have announced Blightbound, a multiplayer-focused dungeon crawler by Ronimo Games (Awesomenauts), heading to Steam Early Access.

Three players must team up to defeat the Blight, a corrupting fog flowing from the corpse of the evil Shadow Titan that was defeated several decades ago. The game has over 20 unique heroes to collect, each of which has their own selection of upgradable skills and abilities. Players can further upgrade themselves with loot and a crafting system.

You can find the announcement trailer below.

You can find a rundown of the game (via Steam) below:


The world lies in peril. Decades ago, a band of legendary warriors slayed the dreaded Shadow Titan after a long and ferocious struggle, but their celebration was short-lived. The Shadow Titan’s true intentions revealed themselves when from his broken husk flowed the Blight; a corrupting fog that alters any living creature exposed to its evil.

Blightbound is a multiplayer dungeon crawler that tasks three heroes to venture down from their mountain refuge to face the abominations of the Blight – a mysterious and corrupting fog that enshrouds the land.

Explore handcrafted dungeons, fight a terrifying cadre of mystical and monstrous enemies, grab valuable loot and recover fallen heroes to expand your roster of available warriors. Each player will fulfill a specific role on the team – warrior, assassin, or mage – to overcome colossal bosses and solve clever puzzles.

Can you collect and complete all the challenges, and conquer the Blight once and for all?
