Demeo PC Edition launches for Steam Early Access on April 7
Resolution Games has announced the Demeo PC Edition will launch for Steam Early Access on April 7, priced at $29.99.
Demeo originally released last year for Steam as a virtual reality-type tabletop RPG, but this new version can be played without a VR headset. An FAQ on the Steam page reveals that owners of the original VR version of Demeo will get access to the new PC version for free, and those who purchase the PC version will also get access to the VR version. Additionally, crossplay between the two versions is supported.
A new gameplay trailer, description, and screenshot set can be found below, via Resolution Games.
Grab your friends and assemble a party, because Demeo: PC Edition is bringing its cooperative, four-player adventure to Steam Early Access on April 7! This award-winning multiplayer game of virtual tabletop tactics has been completely rebuilt for a native PC experience, and will include every Demeo adventure released to date — with the promise to deliver all future adventures simultaneously across all available platforms.
Gather Your Party
Adventurers, it’s time to unite! A dark force has taken over the underworld in the RPG dungeon crawler, Demeo, and it’s a world you’re not likely to survive alone.
Assume the role of eagle-eyed hunter, mystical sorcerer, deadly assassin, protective guardian, or melodic bard. But choose your champions wisely in this cooperative adventure, for once players have accepted their quest, they must work together to vanquish the unholy force that corrupts The 5th Earth... or die trying.
A Vast World
The 5th Earth is a place of contrast, consisting of eight provinces stretching across mountains, forests, caves and oceans. It holds the beauty of a sunset over a meadow where sherp bunnies and brins feed their younglings, or perhaps a wedding taking place in the village of Torp. At the same time, there is also an ugly side. Maybe a reaver drags you down below in a murky river or a vílther attacking you as you explore the ruins of Castle Hollowmark.
One might state that The 5th Earth is an ancient coin with two sides - one light and one dark.
A New Kind of Tabletop Experience
Gathering your best friends for a night of casting spells, rolling dice, and moving miniatures are some of your fondest memories -- and now you can have this same experience with players from anywhere in the world! Demeo recreates all the fun of tabletop dungeon crawling in the digital space by connecting players for table talk, treasure hunts, and plenty of turn-based action with infinite replayability.
Demeo has an extensive content map planned to ensure adventurers have a steady supply of new stories, settings, and villains to contend with.
It’s dangerous to go alone! Grab your friends and assemble a party, because plumbing the depths of Demeo requires strategy, cunning, and teamwork. Every character has their own unique approach to managing magic and monsters — and they’ll need to work together if they want to survive!
Take the mantle of the hunter, sorcerer, assassin, guardian, or bard, all with their own unique abilities and skills, and use them wisely if you are ever to stop the darkness that is Rackarn and Alfaragh.
Build Your Deck
Construct a deck from more than 60 unique cards to deal damage, cast spells, and heal your party as you battle your way through the world of Demeo together. Unlock new cards and abilities for your class as you build your hero for conquest and glory!
An Ever Expanding Journey
Our story originated inside the Elven Necropolis — but that was just a mere overture! Demeo: PC Edition will include every Demeo adventure released to date. Players will traverse the deadly dungeons in ‘The Black Sarcophagus’, explore the unforgiving sewers of Sunderhaven in ‘The Realm of the Rat King’, and venture into the druid-filled Drych Forest in Demeo’s latest adventure, ‘Roots of Evil’. Expect more new adventures to join the growing world of Demeo soon!
Go on an adventure with all your friends, even if they’re questing in VR! Cross-play multiplayer lets you quest alongside players on Meta Quest, Rift, headsets that support Steam VR — as well as your fellow champions. Form a party with your friends, no matter how they prefer to play!
