Local indie hit Armello released for Xbox One

Posted on September 1, 2016

You may be familiar with Armello already; perhaps you’re a fan of the Redwall series of books (no actual relation), or maybe it’s due to this critically nominated hit being  developed in our own backyard.  Now, for those of you who missed this digital board game on first release, the guys at League of Geeks have brought Armello to the Xbox One. And just in time for it’s one year anniversary, new DLC: The Usurpers Hero Pack on Xbox One, Steam and PS4.

“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 DLC adds four new clan rings and a new playable character to each of the four existing animal clans, boosting Armello‘s hero count from 8 to 12. Each character has their own distinct stats and special power, allowing players to find new heroes that tailor to their style. Take a look at the Usurpers trailer:

Armello merges the deep tactics of card games with the rich strategy of table top role-playing systems. 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. Armello is available on Steam for PC, OS X and Linux; PS4 and now Xbox One.

Screenshots of the new heroes can be found below, giving an insight into each of their unique abilities:

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 releases today on Xbox One as part of Microsoft’s Summer Spotlight program. To celebrate Armello’s one-year anniversary, the base game and soundtrack are 25% off across all platforms until September 5th.
