Steamforged announces 3 new expansions for Dark Souls the Board Game
"You have Died"
Dark Souls (2017) is a cooperative fantasy board game based on the popular computer and console game of the same name. In Dark Souls, players take on character roles, fight minions for souls, level up and collect new equipment, trying to get powerful enough to defeat a giant boss. The game was noteworthy for having beautifully large, detailed miniatures, a detailed and programmed boss A.I., and, like its namesake, for being hard. Characters will die, and if too many succumb, the players will lose.
Steamforged Games has announced 3 new expansions for Dark Souls, each expanding a specific area of the game. The Characters Expansion introduces 6 new character types to the game, each with new equipment, actions and stat progressions. The Characters Expansion comes with 16 new miniatures, cards and boards to support the new characters. Vordt of the Boreal Valley is a new boss, originally tasked with standing sentinel over the gates that lead from the Undead Settlement to the Castle of Lothric. Now a savage and mindless beast, the boss Vordt comes with two behavior decks, one for movement and one for battle. The Vordt expansion also comes with a new boss board, and new level 4 encounters, making it a difficult challenge for experienced players. Finally, The Darkroot Basin and Iron Keep expansions come with 9 new double sided tiles for use in any game.
All three new expansions to Dark Souls are expected to deliver to retail on November 22, 2019. For more details on Dark Souls the Board Game, and its previous expansions, check out the Steamforged website here.
