News Xbox One Xbox One S

Armello, the digital board game from League of Geeks where you adventure in a world of anthropomorphic animals  has releases today on Xbox One as part of Microsoft’s Summer Spotlight program. Additionally The Usurpers Hero Pack, Armello’s first DLC, is also available.

Armello has been out for a year already on PC and PS4, and to celebrate this anniversary the base game and soundtrack are 25% off across all platforms until September 5th.

The Usurpers Hero Pack DLC enhances the base game with four new clan rings and a new playable character to each of the four existing animal clans, boosting Armello’s hero count from eight to 12. Each character has their own distinct stats and special power, allowing you to find heroes that tailor to your style.

The new heroes include:

•Magna, The Unbroken – Tank-like member of the Wolf Clan who can reflect opponents’ attacks.

•Elyssia, Wardress of Warrens – Hero of the Rabbit Clan who builds fortifying walls around settlements.

•Ghor, The Wyldkin – Bear Clan champion whose magical powers are increased in forests.

•Sargon, The Death Teller – A legend of the Rat Clan whose cards appear face up when selecting which ones to draw.

Armello merges the deep tactics of card games with the rich strategy of table top and a character role-playing system. You take turns exploring a vibrant world, battling fellow players or the AI and vanquishing evil banes, with the shared goal of claiming the throne from the mad lion king of Armello.

A year after introducing Armello to the world, the game’s audience is still as active as ever
