New heroes and new monsters are coming to the world of Sword & Sorcery. A new Kickstarter campaign for the acclaimed cooperative dungeon-crawler will be launched in Q4/2018 to fund “Ancient Chronicles”, a completely new cycle which will allow players to enter the world of Sword & Sorcery again, many, many years before the events narrated in the Immortal Souls campaign.

Ancient Chronicles: new monsters and heroes to come in Sword & Sorcery.

Ancient Chronicles will have the same basic "two acts" structure than the previous campaign: players will have a new starting point, but everything will be fully compatible in terms of gameplay, so they can crossover heroes and monsters from one campaign to another one. Gameplay will remain familiar, but the new cycle will also introduce many interesting new elements to the setting, the narrative and the mechanics, without making the game more complex.

In Sword & Sorcery game, up to five players control heroes with unique powers, fighting together against the forces of evil - controlled by the game system itself - to save the kingdom and break the spell that binds their souls. The heroes are legendary characters brought back to life by powerful sorcery. Weakened by the resurrection, they grow stronger during their story-driven quests. By acquiring soul points during battles, the heroes’ souls regenerate, restoring their legendary status with multiple powers, magic and soul weapons, and powerful artifacts.

The game was funded on Kickstarter in November 2015 with over $500,000 pledged, supported by 3745 backers. Designed by Gremlin Project studio and published and distributed by Ares Games, Sword & Sorcery released in July 2017, after the complete fulfillment of the Kickstarter backers, and several expansions have been released since then.

More information about the new project “Ancient Chronicles” will be unveiled soon. In the meantime, Ares Games and Gremlin Project will post sneak previews on Sword & Sorcery and Ares Games Facebook pages and here on our website.
