Ares Games and Gremlin Project announce a new board game
Sword and Sorcery, an epic-fantasy cooperative board game, where one to five players fight together against the forces of evil, controlled by the game system itself.
Each player controls one or more heroes – legendary characters brought back to life by powerful sorcery. Weakened by the resurrection, they grow stronger during their story-driven quests. By acquiring soul points during battles, the heroes’ souls regenerate, restoring their legendary status with multiple powers, magic and soul weapons, and powerful artifacts.
Designed by Gremlin Project (the same team who created Galaxy Defenders), Sword and Sorcery's game system represents the perfect evolution of its forerunner. Gameplay is faster and dynamic, thanks to an innovative area movement and area control system, with new features never seen before in a game of this category.
Key features of Galaxy Defenders are also preserved in Sword and Sorcery - such as the advanced AI system for monsters, a high degree of character customization, and the multiple tactical options during battles. packs, in a top-quality board game format, all the excitement of the best MMORPGs and action RPGs, to provide the ultimate heroic fantasy board game adventure.
Sword and Sorcery – Immortal Souls, the first set using the new system, will be launched on Kickstarter in September, and it is due to release in the second half of 2016
