Ancient Chronicles: a new cycle for Sword & Sorcery coming soon on Kickstarter.

Ares Games and Gremlin Project unveil the dates of the Kickstarter campaign to fund a completely new cycle of the Sword & Sorcery game: “Ancient Chronicles” will launch on November 5th, ending on November 21st.

“Ancient Chronicles” will be a new starting point to the acclaimed cooperative dungeon-crawler, suitable both for newcomers and for players who are already playing the Immortal Souls campaign, allowing them to enter the world of Sword & Sorcery again, in a campaign set in the distant past of the events narrated in the previous campaign.

“Ancient Chronicles” is going to be fully compatible with Immortal Souls in terms of gameplay, allowing to crossover heroes and monsters from one campaign to another. Gameplay will remain familiar, but the new cycle will also introduce many interesting new elements to the setting, expanding both the narrative engine and the mechanics, without making the game more complex.

The teaser video is now online on Ares Games’ Youtube channel:

Sword & Sorcery game

In Sword & Sorcery, 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 and released worldwide in July 2017. Several expansions have been released, including campaign sets, hero packs, and accessories. Sword & Sorcery is now available in English, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, German and Russian and new translations are scheduled in 2019, including Polish and Chinese.
