You might recall Armello, a turn-based fantasy board game that released for both the PlayStation 4 and PC. Today, a new press release has confirmed that the video game will see a launch on the Xbox One along with unveiling its first DLC, The Usupers Hero Pack launch.
Both the Xbox One port along with the DLC pack, The Usupers Hero Pack, will be launching on August 30, 2016. This pack will bring out four new playable characters, one for each of the clans such as Bear, Rabbit, Rat, and of course Wolf.
- Magna, the Unbroken: A tank-like Wolf Clan member with the Hero Power, “Shield Maiden,” which allows her to reflect attacks. Magna’s high Body and Fight stats in combination with Shield Maiden is ideally suited for players who focus on combat.
- Elyssia, Wardress of Warrens: A hero of the Rabbit Clan who can permanently fortify settlements with her “Architect” ability, granting Elyssia greater control of the daily gold reward for holding settlements. While not the strongest in straightforward fights, her high Wits stat and ability to monopolize Armello’s economy make her very dangerous.
- Ghor, The Wyldkin: A Bear Clan hero whose magic draws strength from forests. His Hero Power, “Conduit,” allows him to cast spells for one less magic per adjacent forest, and enables him to cast to any woodland tiles on the board. This powerful ability, is ideal for stealthy spell play.
- Sargon, The Death Teller: The latest addition to the Rat Clan has evenly balanced stats, but his Hero Power, “Veil Gazer,” makes him a very appealing choice to cerebral players. Sargon has the ability to see cards before they’re drawn, giving him a strategic advantage over every other character.
Lastly, it was also revealed within the press release sent over that each of the four animal clans will receive a Clan Ring. With the ring equipped, new benefits and powerful boosts will be given to the hero. If you want to hear our thoughts on the video game then you can check out our full review right here.
