Developer Event Horizon partners with Asmodee Digital to publish Dark Envoy
Developer Event Horizon has partnered with Asmodee Digital to publish their upcoming new title, Dark Envoy. Asmodee Digital is a seasoned publisher that has previously released hit titles, such as Gloomhaven, Terraforming Mars, A Game of Thrones: The Board Game - Digital Edition, and most recently, the early access launch of Ember Knights.
We heard from Dark Envoy last April when Event Horizon released a story trailer for it and announced that they would also be bringing it to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S on top of their initial plans to release it on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. They also pushed the title back to sometime in 2022 at that time, after previous multiple delays since its initial announcement back in 2019.
Although no firm release date has been revealed yet, Event Horizon and Asmodee Digital have said that Dark Envoy is still scheduled to release in 2022 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC (Steam, GOG).

Asmodee Digital, a leading video games publisher, announced today that it will publish Dark Envoy, a Guns N’ Sorcery RPG developed by Event Horizon. The game is scheduled for release in 2022 on PC and consoles. It will be playable in single-player mode or in online co-op for up to 2 players.
Dark Envoy is a Guns N' Sorcery RPG-adventure with tactical real-time combat and online co-op. The game merges a rich, non-linear story and tactical, party-based combat with dynamic gameplay flow and high-quality visuals and effects. It blends modern concepts with classic genre tropes, creating a distinct and unique RPG gaming experience.
In Dark Envoy, the players embody Malakai and Kaela, two children of war refugees. They are living the day-to-day life of adventurers as they seek ancient relics and forgotten places. Soon they too will have to learn how to survive in the chaos of war, as blood and tragedy will mark the beginning of their true journey.
"We are delighted to partner today with the gifted Event Horizon team to publish Dark Envoy, an innovative tactical RPG" said Nicolas Godement, Head of Operations at Asmodee Digital. As we are expanding our editorial scope towards new genres and new audiences, Dark Envoy fits perfectly with our desire to offer players increasingly varied and immersive gaming experiences. We look forward to allowing players to discover the unique world of Dark Envoy and are excited to support Event Horizon throughout this journey."
"For Dark Envoy, we were looking for a publisher that shares our utmost respect for the gaming community and is willing to experiment with gameplay mechanics and look for ways to refresh the RPG genre," explained Krzysztof Monkiewicz, CEO of Event Horizon.
Asmodee Digital is focused on delivering high-quality entertainment, and that fits perfectly with our mission to make our games a unique experience for all players.
Dark Envoy is scheduled for release in 2022, on PC (Steam & GOG) as well as consoles.
