For The King is a roguelike RPG that utilizes strategy elements from tabletop games. Your main mission is to avenge the death of your king (hence the title), but as is typical of the genre, your real motive is to collect random treasure and explore as much of the procedurally generated levels as possible, in single player and co-op multiplayer modes.
IronOak Games, developers of For The King, have been adding various features over the past few months based on player feedback. Now they have nearly completed the game and it will leave Steam Early Access on April 19. When the finished product appears, it’ll have some new content it didn’t before: the Frozen Expanse, which contains three new areas. When you explore The Shivering Woods, Frozen Expanse and the Frigid Sea, you’ll find two new dungeons, a new character to recruit, over 20 new enemies including two new Scourges, and lots more….including 10 new Steam Achievements.
For The King officially goes on sale on Steam April 19. The normal price will be $19.99, but for the first week of regular release you can get it at a 20% discount. (This discount does not apply to the Early Access version that’s up right now….wait nine days). If the PC isn’t your game-playing device of choice, For The King is coming to Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC next year.
Mixing up a challenging blend of strategy, tabletop RPG, and rogue-like elements, For The King features both a single player experience as well as the ability for three heroes to play cooperatively both online and locally. Taking place in the gorgeous, hexagonal kingdom of Fahrul, players must strategically explore and battle their way through the fairytale, stylized landscape in a bid to discover and survive, lest they succumb to death.
