Battle Bands is a multiplayer deck-building game set in the fantasy land of Riff City.

It’s you and your friends (or just you) vs. the world in this amped-up battle-of-the-bands experience featuring roguelike co-op campaigns and competitive tournament team play.

Whatever the gig, a sound tactical strategy and sick riffs are key to winning the championship and becoming a rock legend in Battle Bands!

Start a musical act on your own or with friends and take on challenging AI rivals in roguelike co-op campaigns for up to four players in Tour Mode.

And if you’re really ready to turn it up, face off in the ultimate tournament experience featuring 64 bands in Royale Mode.

Battle Bands is coming to PC via Steam Early Access later this year, and will remain so for 6-12 months.

“In the current game, planned core features have been implemented. Characters and band's vans are fully customizable. You can create or join a band with other players and compete in a 64-band online tournament. Each tournament takes between 45 and 60 minutes from start to finish. There are four instruments (guitar, bass, drums, keys) in the game, each with its own unique deck that will unlock more cards as it is played.”

“The full 1.0 version will have additional content for character and van customization as well as a new season pass with a new set of reward content. Band gear options and decks will be extended and provide for more balanced game-play. Final localization options will also be available upon release.”

Key Features:

  • Roguelike Co-op Campaigns with Bosses: Team up with up to three friends or go solo against the machine in roguelike cooperative campaigns with Tour Mode.
  • Epic 4v4 Tournaments: Duel with your mates in online competitions featuring 64 bands with real-time, single-elimination rounds to prove you’re the GOAT in Royale Mode.
  • Your Deck Is Your Instrument: Choose from the guitar, bass, keyboard, or drums and build up your deck with hundreds of unique unlockable cards.
  • Perfect Your Solo: Test your musical mettle against the AI before you take on even more challenging adversaries with your buddies.
  • Create Your Rock & Roll Look: Personalize your perfect stage persona, customizing everything from the instruments to the wardrobe. And don’t forget a wicked name for the band!
  • Ride in Style: Deck out your van with hundreds of color and customization options, and cruise into every venue looking like a rock star.

Battle Bands is in development for PC (Steam), scheduled for 2022.
