'Blightbound' Early Access Update Adds New Areas, Enemies and Items - Trailer

Blightbound is a co-op side-scrolling dungeon crawler that invites the finest three-hero parties in the land to clear scores of dungeons stuffed with formidable beasts and alluring treasure.

The world lies in peril. Decades ago, a band of legendary warriors slayed the dreaded Shadow Titan after a long and ferocious struggle, but their celebration was short-lived. The Shadow Titan’s true intentions revealed themselves when from his broken husk flowed the Blight; a corrupting fog that alters any living creature exposed to its evil.

Blightbound is an online & local multiplayer dungeon crawler that tasks three heroes to venture down from their mountain refuge to face the abominations of the Blight - a mysterious and corrupting fog that enshrouds the land.

Explore handcrafted dungeons, fight a terrifying cadre of mystical and monstrous enemies, grab valuable loot, and recover fallen heroes to expand your roster of available warriors. Each player will fulfill a specific role on the team - warrior, assassin, or mage - to overcome colossal bosses and solve clever puzzles.

Can you collect and complete all the challenges, and conquer the Blight once and for all?

Devolver Digital released the Arcane Glamour update for Blightbound, which brings with it new areas, items, enemies and improvements.

Arcane Glamour delivers a wealth of additions and improvements in Blightbound’s largest update yet, bringing a tangible air of prestige to the character ranks, as well as despicable new randomized foes and significant gameplay features.

An imposing new area is ready to be explored by your heroes in the Underhold. Hidden in the yawning Underhold Depths lies a new boss: Haäken, the jailed.

Adding to your heroes’ trials are two new enemies: the Elusive Wretch and the imposing Sinful Totemist have recently been making the lives of many adventurers on the battlefield more difficult. 

Coming to the rescue, however, is new playable hero Roland of Stendhall, an untouchable exhibitionist on the battlefield with a lock-down and long distance kill. Roland refuses to have the horrors or the Blight touch his perfection.

Players of any can now select any hero before matchmaking, promising more variety and tactical possibilities than ever before, while an abundance of new items have been added to the game, alongside their respective recipes, and detailed hero stats ensure that no item is wasted in your quest to strengthen the Refuge.

In addition, encounter randomization now changes enemy types between runs, ensuring every excursion provides a unique challenge.

Key Features:

  • Blightbound is an ever-expanding game with new dungeons to explore, new heroes to recover and use, and new loot to retrieve with planned free updates for the community.
  • Collect over 20 unique heroes, each with their own skill set, passive abilities, and fully narrated story to complete.
  • Hundreds of unique items to loot and craft to improve each hero and alter their repertoire of attacks and abilities. 
  • Build out your refuge atop the mountain by recruiting new artisans to craft more items, fulfilling bounties, and training your heroes.
  • Battle through three distinct lands, each with several dungeons to conquer, including the eerie Gravemark, the oppressive Underhold, and precarious Blood Ridge.
  • Distinct class roles that reward team play and powerful ultimate abilities that charge from fulfilling your role. Block damage as a warrior, interrupt enemies as an assassin or heal your allies as a mage.
  • A stunning mix of hand-painted characters and real time 3D models and lighting effects.

Blightbound is a dark and stylish multiplayer dungeon crawler that is currently available through Steam Early Access for $19.99.
