The co-operative dungeon crawler, Blightbound, is charging into Steam Early Access on July 29th. The dark and stylish dungeon looter will have a 10% launch discount from its normal price of $19.99. The game has both online and local multiplayer. The story sees a trio of heroes who leave their mountain refuge to venture into dark dungeons. In the bowels of these dungeons, they will face the monsters of Blight, a mysterious and terrible fog that twists all it touches into corrupted forms. Here is the game’s trailer:
Blightbound features over 20 unique heroes to venture through its hand-crafted dungeons. The press release says the game is “ever-expanding” with new dungeons, new heroes, and new loot to collect. This is because they are planning free updates in the future, according to the press release. Each player will fulfill a certain role in their team (warrior, assassin, or mage) so the team can overcome huge bosses or solve puzzles to progress. Visually, the game blends 3D models and lighting effects with hand-painted characters.
Blightbound includes three different lands to battle your way through, as you collect or craft hundreds of different loot items. The three unique lands are “the eerie Gravemark, the oppressive Underhold, and the precarious Blood Ridge”. Each hero can be improved to make them more formidable. Heroes also have devastating ultimate abilities that charge up when you fulfill your team role. This means “block damage as a warrior, interrupt enemies as an assassin or heal your allies as a mage”. You can find out more at the official website, or check out the Steam page.
