Strategic, tabletop RPG For The King is just days away from release on Nintendo Switch. Available to pre-order right now, it'll launch this Thursday 9th May.
The game blends tabletop and roguelike elements in a "challenging adventure that spans the realms". Aiming to be highly replayable, it'll have you venturing forth into the lands of Fahrul and discovering that every playthrough is unique with procedural maps, quests, and events.
For The King’s most replayable aspect is said to come in the form of Lore, which is generated through battles, story content, quests and more. Essentially, it's a currency which is carried through each of your playthroughs, allowing you to purchase new characters, customisation options, locations, encounters and items.
Here's a feature list for you to check out:
- Procedurally Generated Maps - Explore a procedurally generated world, from maps to quests to events, where every adventure is made unique.
- Singleplayer and Multiplayer Game Modes - Explore the lands of Fahrul alone, or with friends in local co-op or online multiplayer. Stick together for protection, or split the party to cover more ground.
- Turn-based Combat System - Fight and die as a party in fast paced and brutal turn-based combat using a unique slot system for attacks and special abilities.
- Includes all free updates - Following the success of For The King on PC, the console version of the game will include all the existing expansion packs for the game - including the Dungeon Crawl, Frozen Expanse Hilderbrandt’s Cellar, Gold Rush and Into The Deep adventures.
The game will launch on Switch for £19.99 / €24.99 / $24.99, although a 20% discount will be available for two weeks after release.
