The world lies in peril. Decades ago, a band of legendary heroes finally defeated the dreaded Shadow Titan after a long and ferocious struggle, but their celebration was short-lived. Despite the incredible victory, the war left behind a broken Sun that plunged the world into darkness. The Shadow Titan’s true intentions revealed themselves when from his broken husk flowed the Blight; a corrupted fog that alters any living creature exposed to its evil for too long.
High in the mountains, now the only refuge from the Blight, our heroes learn that their ancient forebearers, the Aetheri, had crafted powerful items capable of offering protection to any of those brave enough to descend into the Blight and strike back at the horrors that lay within. Now, our heroes must unite once more in their quest to recover more relics, defeat the darkness, and one day reclaim their homelands.
In Blightbound players will team up in groups of three heroes, locally or online, and venture down from their mountain refuge to face the abominations of the Blight. Heading out into the mist will see them explore dungeons, solve puzzles and fight a terrifying range of mystical and monstrous enemies. Each player will fulfill a role in the team, either as a warrior, an assassin or a mage.
From these dungeon runs they can recover more heroes and loot to bolster their refuge. The refuge can also be expanded by recruiting more artisans, providing ways to craft items, train heroes and fulfill bounties. Each hero also has a personal journey to complete. Once finished, they can assist the artisans to make them even more useful.
Blightbound will be released on PC, Xbox and PlayStation on the 27th July 2021
