Terrors and treasure await as you and your friends brave the corrupted catacombs of Demeo together. Choose your champions (Guardian, Sorcerer, Assassin and Hunter) wisely in this cooperative game, for once you have ventured below you must conquer the nether floors or perish in the attempt. The ultimate outcome depends on your choices, and whether the dice are rolled in your favor…

Will you have the mettle to survive all the way to the end in this monster-infested turn-based game that will take game night virtual?

Resolution Games unveiled the fully-stacked 2022 roadmap for its multiplayer RPG Demeo. Included in the lineup is the official release date for Demeo: PC Edition; the first announcement of a forthcoming PvP mode; an all-new social hub; and the company’s commitment to deliver even more upcoming adventures.

Launching in Early Access on Steam on April 7, 2022, Demeo: PC Edition has been rethought from the ground up for the PC gaming audience. This new PC Edition will offer cross-play functionality, letting players group up with VR users (or just other PC players if they’d prefer) when forming their parties. Demeo: PC Edition will include all of the adventures released to date, with the promise to deliver all future adventures simultaneously across all available platforms.

“Since Demeo launched, we have more than doubled the size of the team dedicated to its ongoing development,” said Tommy Palm, CEO and founder of Resolution Games. “The reception from players has been incredible — and with the PC Edition, we’re looking forward to bringing an authentic tabletop experience to even more players. This is the real deal for desktop gamers, as we’re completely rebuilding Demeo for a native PC experience — and we can’t wait to welcome you into the world of Demeo.” 


PvP Mode

Also in 2022, Demeo will expand its cooperative dungeon crawling fun into the fierceness of competitive battles with the launch of a  player-versus-player mode. Demeo’s PvP mode will turn friends into enemies by pitting magic against steel with up to four players joining in the fray to determine who is the one true champion in your party. 

Player’s Hangout

When you’re not traversing the dungeon in a quest for treasure and glory, it’s important to have a place where you can just socialize and chill. On February 24, 2022, Demeo will add a whole new environment where you can meet other players, customize your avatar, and play mini-games — including the homage arcade game Hauntlet, designed by Doom co-creator and Resolution Games senior creative director Tom Hall. 

Demeo’s Third Adventure: Roots of Evil

Available today on Meta Quest, Rift, and SteamVR, the third adventure in Demeo’s growing fantasy universe, Roots of Evil, takes players out of the dungeons and onto the surface world for the first time. A commune of druids in the Drych Forest have captured a being of absolute evil — but can they control their captive without being corrupted themselves? Gather your heroes and help liberate the forest from the Roots of Evil!

A New Hero Class: The Bard

In addition to a new adventure, today’s Roots of Evil update adds a fifth playable champion to the cast of Demeo adventurers: Molthas the Bard. Equipped with both lute and dagger, the bard class has songs that can buff your fellow party members, silence your enemies and even summon a mighty wind that destroys everything in its path. Can you win your new and old conquests with this worthy hero? Try now as Roots of Evil and the Bard are available as a free update for all Demeo players starting today.

More Adventures to Come

Following the availability of adventures ‘The Black Sarcophagus’, ‘Realm of the Rat King’, and today’s launch of ‘Roots of Evil’, Resolution Games has plenty more in store for Demeo. Two brand new adventures will arrive in 2022, with details to be revealed at a later date.

“With Demeo, we set out to make a game that rekindles that feeling of gathering around a table with friends to fight monsters and find gold,” added Palm. “The game’s first year proved that we absolutely hit the mark. What really made those games fun in the long-term, though, was the promise of more content, more adventures and more ways to play. As we head into 2022, we recognize how beloved Demeo is and have made our most ambitious plans yet as a studio. This is a game we’ll all be playing for years to come — and with the launch of Demeo: PC Edition in 2022, even more friends will be able to join the adventure.”   

Currently available on Meta Quest, Rift, and SteamVR (Valve Index, HTC, WMR), Demeo will also launch as a traditional non-VR PC title (Steam Early Access) on April 7, 2022 at $29.99.
