Gloomhaven, The Tabletop Smash Hit, Makes Its Way To PC Today


Gloomhaven is one of the most highly regarded tabletop games of the last decade, and it is making its way to PC today. The game released onto early access a couple of hours ago. Developed by Flaming Fowl Studios, and published by Asmodee Digital, the PC version is a physical adaptation of the board game, not a straight-up copy of it. 

Whether you are drawn to the lands of Gloomhaven by the call of adventure or by an avid desire for gold glimmering in the dark, your fate will surely be the same. Gloomhaven, the digital adaptation of the acclaimed board game, mixes Tactical-RPG and dungeon-crawling.

You play as a squad of up to four mercenaries, all with their unique abilities, moving through a dangerous dark fantasy universe in this turn-based tactical RPG. Team synergies are vital, and you have to build your squad and select their abilities carefully. Completing your quests allows you to upgrade your gear and your characters. 

I haven't had the chance to get into the game yet, but it is waiting for me to press play. I have been pretty excited about this one since I first heard about it a couple of weeks ago. The Steam page also provides helpful information on updates coming to the game while it is in early access. New content is going to drop during the third quarter of this year, along with a new mercenary. The fourth quarter brings in new environments, enemies, and bosses, and early 2020 will have more of the same. 

The game is a single-player experience at the moment, but the full launch product promises to include an entire campaign, along with a multiplayer co-op mode.
