'Solasta: Crown of the Magister' Palace of Ice DLC Comes To Xbox And PC Next Week

Solasta: Crown of the Magister is a tactical RPG that embraces the ruleset of the world's greatest role-playing game where a player's choice dynamically changes the adventure.

The journey begins with creating a team of four explorers, selecting their race, class, background story, rolling for abilities and personal stats. Players will journey through the mystical realms of Solasta, unraveling a story that spans multiple worlds.

The dynamic and mysterious world of Solasta features brand new elements of verticality, allowing players to use their surroundings as an element of strategy. Position ranged characters on high vantage points or send your thief down into shafts and caverns to scope out what’s ahead. Utilize light as a tool to explore the depths and hollows of dungeons or use it as a weapon against the creatures of the dark. Solasta is a unique team-based adventure where each character plays a critical role in the campaign and can be a hero. Players must take advantage of each character’s strengths and weaknesses if they are to succeed.

Players will have the opportunity to get in on the adventure before it even starts when Tactical Adventures launches its Kickstarter campaign at the end of summer. Players will be able to back Solasta: Crown of the Magister on Kickstarter and link arms with the developers, joining the Solasta community and being rewarded for doing so!

Two years on from the release of Solasta: Crown of the Magister, developer Tactical Adventures has announced the biggest campaign in the series - Solasta: Palace of Ice, which will launch on May 25, 2023 for $14.99 / €14,99 / £14.99.

The Palace of Ice campaign is a new premium DLC that gives players over 25 hours of new content, and that takes place following the end of the original Crown of the Magister campaign. Designed with higher level characters in mind (level 10-16), players will discover entirely new locations and weather effects, as well as new enemy types and high level character development (spells, items, armors, etc). 

And that’s not all! New dungeon maker environments have been added, as well as two new races to complete your party - Gnomes and Tieflings.

This new campaign sees the Soraks infiltrating Gallivan and threatening the Snow Alliance after making a deal with the demons. The heroes will have to deal with the Soraks and Demons to allow the Snow Alliance to elect a new speaker.

An all-new free content update will also provide more faces for character creation, the ability to play levels 12-16, plus a world map and NPC follower system in Dungeon Maker.

The brand new Palace of Ice DLC will release alongside Solasta: Lightbringers Edition. Available to purchase on PC at the end of May, this complete collection features the Solasta: Crown of the Magister base game, as well as all previous DLC content packs, like Inner Strength and Lost Valley. 

Key Features:

  • Verticality: Solasta is a three-dimensional world rather than a series of flat maps. Locations can be explored by climbing walls, flying, teleporting, crawling through tunnels, finding secret passages, or falling through unstable ground, and allow the player to use the environment to take on encounters in multiple different ways.
  • Team Based Adventure: Players will have many options to choose races, classes, backgrounds, and can even roll for stats as they create their party. All members are essential - together you will adventure through Solasta as a group, where you must work together in pursuit of your quest.
  • Tactical CRPG: Each encounter can be handled in multiple ways. Will you use the high ground to strike your enemies from above as a Darkweaver Rogue, or shove your enemies into deep chasms as a Mountaineer Fighter? Your choices alone will determine the destiny of your party.
  • Light: Light will not only help to see your surroundings as you explore deep underground or in a dungeon. It can also be used as a weapon against dragons and creatures you encounter along your journey. Careful, though - light can also give away your position.
  • Created by Tabletop Players: Tactical Adventures is a team of highly experienced Tabletop players and veteran game developers who are passionate about the genre, striving to create the best Tactical RPG videogame

Wizards of the Coast has granted developer Tactical Adventures a license to use the Dungeons & Dragons SRD 5.1 content and rules in their upcoming tactical RPG Solasta: Crown of the Magister.

Solasta: Crown of the Magister is available on Xbox One Xbox Series X|S and PC (Steam and GOG) for $34.99.
