Armellothe award-winning digital board game from #LeagueofGeeks, #releases today on Xbox One for $19.99 / €19.99 as part of Microsoft’s Summer Spotlight program.

The Usurpers Hero Pack adds 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 players to find heroes that tailor to their style.

You can see the new DLC launch trailer here:

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. Players take turns exploring a vibrant world, battling players 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,” said Trent Kusters, co-founder and director of League of Geeks. “Whether you’ve never played a match or you’re a seasoned vet, today’s content drop guarantees you will have a new experience, and with the talent seen in our community, you’re sure to have competition,”

The Final Station 2D survival launches on Steam today

the final station action adventure launches mac windows pc

The world is over. But it’s not quite over for you… at least, not yet. And now that you’ve got thousands of tonnes of locomotive at your disposal, you’ve got the definite advantage over the infected hordes. This is The Final Station.

The Linux release:

“We have plans to #launch game on #Linux, but after release. We’re using Unity.”

Travel by train through a dying world. Look after your passengers, keep your train operational, and make sure you can always reach the next station. Make your way through swarms of infected at each station. Explore mysterious and abandoned stations looking for supplies and survivors.

The real question is whether or not you’ll help the survivors get to their destinations…. or let them die and loot their bodies. Sometimes people can be more trouble than they’re worth.

  • A post-apocalyptic adventure about travelling a dying world on a train
  • A story that goes through 5 chapters, with large inhabited stations at the end of each one.
  • Infected are ready to stop your progress whenever you exit the train to look for supplies
  • Maintain your train in operating condition and craft valuable items from the resources you scavenge
  • Don’t expect to shoot your way through the crowds of infected. Supplies and ammo are very limited
  • Pick up survivors along the way, gaining perks (and hindrances) for your troubles
  • Scavenge for loot at stations and craft useful supplies
  • Sell your loot at inhabited stations for useful upgrades to your weapons

The Final Station is available today on Steam for Mac and Windows PC, with a Linux release to follow soon.
