IronOak Games and Curve Digital will be bringing their board game-inspired roguelite RPG, For The King, to Switch and Xbox One later this week.
For The King launched from Early Access on Windows PC, Mac, and Linux via Steam and GOG in April 2018, and has already made its way to the PS4. The Switch version will be releasing on May 9th, while the Xbox One version is coming May 10th.
The Xbox One version is also available as part of the Xbox One Game Pass. Both versions will be $19.99, and there will be a 20% off launch discount for the first two weeks. You can find a trailer for the game above, and you can read our preview of it here.
Here’s a rundown of the game:
For The King is a strategic RPG that blends tabletop and roguelike elements in a challenging adventure that spans the realms. Incredibly replayable, venture forth into the lands of Fahrul and discover that every playthrough is unique with procedural maps, quests, and events. Just remember adventurer, you do this not for riches or fame but for your village, for your realm, For The King!
The King is dead, murdered by an unknown assailant. Now the once peaceful kingdom of Fahrul is in chaos. With nowhere left to turn and stretched beyond her means, the queen has put out a desperate plea to the citizens of the land to rise up and stem the tide of impending doom. Will you put an end to the Chaos?
For The King’s most replayable aspect comes in the form of Lore. Lore is generated through battles, story content, quests and more and is a currency that is carried through each of your playthroughs, giving the player a real sense of player progression. Lore is used to purchase new Characters, Customization Options, Locations, Encounters and Items to continue to vary and enhance your gameplay as you continue to save Fahrul!
•Procedurally Generated Maps – Explore a procedurally generated world, from maps to quests to events, where every adventure is made unique!
•Singleplayer and Multiplayer Game Modes – Explore the lands of Fahrul alone, or with friends in local co-op or online multiplayer. Stick together for protection, or split the party to cover more ground!
