Introducing Demeo Battles: A New PvP Experience in the World of Demeo
In a thrilling development for fans of the popular VR-optional tabletop dungeon board game Demeo, a new PvP title is set to launch on November 9th. Demeo Battles will allow players to pit their skills against each other in intense player-versus-player combat.
Delayed but Worth the Wait
Originally slated for release in 2022, the highly anticipated Demeo Battles has faced a delay and is now scheduled to arrive on November 9th for PC and VR headsets. The game will be available on the Quest platform and SteamVR, with a pre-order option already open for Quest players at a price of $20. Meanwhile, Steam users can add the game to their wishlist.
To give players a taste of the action before the official release, a playable demo of Demeo Battles will be launched during Steam Next Fest on October 9th. This exciting opportunity will allow eager gamers to experience firsthand the thrills of grid-based action combat in this innovative PvP experience. Mark your calendars!
Turn-based Tactics and Intense PvP Competition
Demeo Battles introduces a range of exciting features that set it apart from the original Demeo game. The main highlight is the turn-based tactics gameplay, where players engage in battles in dungeons, forests, and various other thrilling settings. The action takes place on grid-based maps designed exclusively for intense PvP competition.
However, players must also contend with a dangerous and ever-encroaching flood of lava known as “The Burn.” This deadly force moves towards the center of the board, causing immense damage to any player or monster caught in its path. Balancing strategy and quick thinking will be essential to avoid falling victim to this perilous threat.
An Army of Chaotic Critters
Demeo Battles allows players to assemble an army of 37 unique creatures to fight alongside them in combat. From rats and goblins to cave trolls and giant slimes, you’ll have a rotating cast of monstrous minions at your disposal. Each creature possesses its own distinct abilities and characteristics, making the gameplay dynamic and unpredictable.
Heroic Teamwork and Class-based Gameplay
When engaging in Demeo Battles, players can bring two champions to the fight. These champions can be controlled individually or partnered up with another player, allowing for cooperative gameplay. Leveraging the synergies between your champions will be crucial to outsmart and defeat your opponents.
Moreover, players can choose a champion from seven different classes: hunter, sorcerer, assassin, guardian, bard, warlock, or barbarian. Each class brings its own unique play style and strategies to the table. With 89 possible cards to choose from, you’ll have a wide array of options to rain fury down upon your adversaries.
