NACON has announced Rogue Lords, a new rogue-like game co-developed by Cyanide and Leikir Studio. Rogue Lords takes place in a gloomy 17th Century New England where mortals and diabolical entities walk side by side.
The game reverses the usual roles, with the player taking on the role of the Devil who, weakened following a terrible defeat, is seeking to regain his powers. His goal is to once again spread corruption through a world left destabilised by his absence. To achieve his dark designs, he directs a team comprised of illustrious Disciples of Evil, including Bloody Mary, Dracula, the White Lady and Baron Samedi.
In Rogue Lords, the player explores a 3D map and chooses how they will sow chaos during numerous interactions with other characters. Players launch their chosen Disciples of Evil into challenging turn-based combat and use their skills to overcome adversaries in battles where defeat means Game Over, and the player loses all character progress and has to start a new story. Players will have to choose wisely in order to find a balance that will enable them to avoid defeat. As a last resort, the player can call upon the Devil’s special powers and tip the scales to turn a desperate situation on its head in a brand-new way!
“Rogue Lords is a game we came up with several years ago with Jérémie Monedero, the Game Director”, said Camille Lisoir, Artistic Director at Cyanide. “We are delighted to see the project become reality. We have fantastic synergy with the talented team at Leikir Studio and we can’t wait to reveal our diabolical world.”
The macabre and poetic Rogue Lords will be released this Autumn on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
