Players will also have a chance to face never-before-seen boss fights.

In  Super Dungeon Bros, a band of mighty rock bros must navigate the endless dungeons of Rökheim, a giant scar of godforsaken earth, to seek out epic loot, fight hordes of evil undead and uncover the legends of long lost fabled Rock Stars!

Teams of up to four players either on or offline can take on the roles of heavy metal heroes; Axl, Ozzie, Freddie, and Lars and embark on a quest from the gods of rock to search ever-changing dungeons (which scale depending on the number of players) and combine rock and fantasy with dangerous foes, deadly obstacles and hazardous puzzles.
