With “Gloomhaven” console players should also be able to enjoy the digital adaptation of the celebrated board game. Asmodee Digital has officially announced an implementation with a trailer.
Asmodee Digital and Saber Interactive have announced that Gloomhaven, a role-playing game originally developed by Flaming Fowl Studios, will be making its way to consoles after two years on PC. However, neither specific platforms nor a release date have been mentioned so far.
The beginning of a long partnership
But Pierre Ortolan, Managing Director of Asmodee Digital, said of the announcement: “We are excited to partner with Saber Interactive to bring Gloomhaven to new players from around the world. Partnerships like this are one of the great benefits we now have as part of the Embracer Group and we look forward to exploring even more ways to deliver to our fans in the future.”
However, Saber Interactive CEO and co-founder Matthew Karch also emphasized that such partnerships brought Asmodee into the Embracer family. “Gaming is truly a transmedia experience and it’s fantastic to have the opportunity to work with the world’s top board game makers to bring their brands to consoles. This is the first of many announcements to come.”
Gloomhaven is a tactical role-playing game adapted from the board game by Isaac Childres that immerses players in a unique medieval dark fantasy universe. You can face the darkness alone or with up to three other players in online co-op, with strategic planning and problem-solving being rewarded.
You can also choose from 17 unique characters with their own unique skills. More than 1000 abilities can be selected for a skill deck, allowing you to use the cards in battle to strike down opponents. A first trailer for the console version already gives us an impression of the adventure.
As soon as those responsible provide more information, we will bring you up to date. One can only hope that the console implementation will not be too long in coming.
