Despot’s Game launches this summer for PS5, Xbox Series, PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC

Roguelike tactical auto-battler Despot’s Game will leave Early Access and launch for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC via Steam this summer, publisher tinyBuild and developer Konfa Games announced.

Despot’s Game first launched in Early Access for PC via Steam on October 14, 2021.

A demo is also now available for Xbox consoles, which features the first levels of the Early Access version’s dungeons.

“Over the past months, we really listened to our community to learn what would make Despot’s Game even greater,” said Konfa Games game creator Nikolay Kuznetsov in a press release. “From that came exciting revamped mechanics to better the player experience and a ton of new content that we are proud to release across all consoles and mobile. Now, there’s no more excuse to stay out of Despot’s Game‘s chaotic madness!”

Here is an overview of the game, via tinyBuild:

The nefarious from Spot has spoken—Despot’s Game soon leaves Early Access to join the console and PC ranks with revamped mechanics, new quests, enemies, mutations, and an expanded soundtrack. Terrorizing the naked and memory-less humans as they try to escape an endless maze-like complex has never been so fun.

Equip the unarmed masses with one of 50 weapons ranging from conventional swords and guns to ridiculous apparatuses like stale pretzels throwers, magical rabbits-in-a-hat, and damage-soaking refrigerators. Make use of 10 human classes including throwers, mages, and cultists, building up their ranks and diversifying armaments to unlock power-ups that aid in battles.

Keep the ranks well-fed and deploy them strategically for a better chance at survival. While mages and shooters provide support with long-range attacks, fighters sporting Rocky’s iconic boxing gloves and tanks with protective periodic tables should take the front lines for hands-on combat and protection.

Stack mutations to strengthen forces, like invoking “Glory to Satan” to sacrifice a newcomer and summon an eldritch tentacle that deals massive damage to foes. Smash through 60 types of monsters with destructive abilities to survive these chaotic killing games. From man-eating cabbages and killer robots to necromancers joined by vicious giant skeletons ready to drop humans into black portals, many perils await.

Alongside the 1.0 release, the game also gains a new mode focused on an enhanced multiplayer experience.
