by Rainier on April 19, 2022 @ 1:30 a.m. PDT

Gloomhaven is a dungeon-crawling RPG featuring tactical turn-based combat, an infinitely replayable roguelike mode.

In this digital version of the board game, Gloomhaven shares a world and lore with its analog predecessor but takes on a new life as a challenging turn-based tactical RPG.

Set in a medieval fantasy world, players will struggle to survive through procedurally generated dungeons filled with deadly enemies, equipment to find, and powerful abilities to unlock, with much more in the works for the full launch.

In the digital adaptation of Isaac Childres’ ultimate strategic board game you play as a squad of 2-4 mercenaries in a world of darkness and trials. Gloomhaven is a balanced mix between tactical, RPG and dungeon-crawling. Its legendary unforgiving difficulty rewards only the best strategic-thinking players.

Seasoned adventurers will have to wisely weigh all their decisions, as every choice in Gloomhaven has consequences. The turn-based, tactical, dark fantasy game rewards strategic planning and thinking, not luck. Players will now be able to forge a new path through the dungeons of Gloomhaven, as the full game release unlocks the entire board game campaign, with 95 new stories and event missions to delve into. They can also dive into the 170 missions of the Guildmaster campaign, exclusive to the digital game and already available in the Early Access version. Over 200 hours of deliciously difficult card-based gameplay awaits - packed full of horrifying monsters, 17 one-of-a-kind mercenaries with 1000s of abilities to master, along with 100s of perks, enhancements, and gear to customize your loadout.

Publisher Asmodee Digital and developer Flaming Fowl Studios announced that Gloomhaven Digital’s first DLC, Jaws of the Lion, will be available on PC/Mac (Steam) on May 17, 2022.

With this adaptation of the eponymous board game; players will be given a new challenge with more than 30 hours of new content. It will include the four mercenaries, new enemies and all 25 scenarios from the original board game, with some tweaks and balance made by the original designer, Isaac Childres.

As a DLC to Gloomhaven Digital, the new Jaws of the Lion scenarios will be playable in the Story campaign once the players have beaten the second scenario of the base game. With 25 new scenarios available, players can explore a new side of Gloomhaven as a new ominous threat looms over its inhabitants. Cultists and vermlings roam the undercity and people disappear night after night. Sinister rumors are spreading, with some speaking of otherworldly howls, strange voices, and blood... so much blood...
In both Story and Guildmaster campaigns, players will be able to choose from four new mercenaries, each with vastly different playstyles: the Red Guard, Hatchet, Demolitionist, and Void Warden, as well as 24 new Battle Goals. As players progress within Gloomhaven – Jaws of the Lion, they will encounter 10 new enemies, from crazed Zealots to terrifying Chaos Demons.
