The brave developers of Ronimo Games (Awesomenauts) and their loyal Devolver Digital squires (Fall Guys, GRAY) return from the mist to announce Blightbound, a dark and stylish multiplayer dungeon crawler that will make its way to PC in Early Access this summer.
The world is in danger. Decades ago, a band of legendary warriors finished off the fearsome Shadow Titan after a long and bloody battle. However, his joy was short-lived. The true intentions of the Shadow Titan were soon revealed when the Blight, the plague, emerged from its shell; a corrupting mist capable of transforming any creature that is exposed to it.
Blightbound is a multiplayer dungeon crawler – both online and local – that pairs three brave warriors to descend from their mountaintop refuge and face the abominations of the Blight – the mysterious and corrupting mist that covers the entire land.
Explore handcrafted dungeons, fight a terrifying host of monstrous and mystical enemies, earn valuable rewards, and recover fallen heroes to increase your roster of available characters. Each player will have to occupy a very specific role in the team – warrior, assassin or wizard – to defeat the colossal final bosses and solve their complex puzzles.
Will you be able to find and complete all the challenges and defeat the Blight once and for all?
Blightbound is an ever-growing game with new dungeons to explore, new heroes to retrieve and use, as well as new gear to collect thanks to its free community-wide update schedule.
Find 20 unique heroes, each with their own abilities, both active and passive, and a personal story told.
Hundreds of unique items to loot, or craft, that will upgrade each hero and change their entire repertoire of attacks and abilities.
Build your own shelter on top of the mountain and recruit new craftsmen to craft more items, equipment, and train your heroes.
Battle your way across three different lands, each with a handful of dungeons to conquer including the grim Gravemark, the oppressive Underhold, and the unstable Blood Ridge.
Different roles for each character that seek to enhance teamwork with powerful special abilities that are filled if you do your job well. Block damage as a warrior, annoy your enemies as an assassin, or heal your allies as a mage.
A striking mix of hand-drawn characters with real-time 3D models and lighting effects.
