Awesomenauts’ developer releasing multiplayer dungeon crawler Blightbound in 2020

Ronimo Games and Devolver Digital are releasing Blightbound on Steam Early Access in 2020. A multiplayer, dungeon crawler, Blightbound tasks “three heroes to venture down from their mountain refuge to face the abominations of the Blight.” These three heroes each has a specific role, which acts as the classes players can choose.

Warrior, Assassin and Mage will be available for players to choose and co-operation will be key to defeating enemies and bosses and solving puzzles. There are more than 20 unique heroes in the game but players will need to recover them to add them to the roster.

Ronimo Games has announced that Blightbound will continue to be supported after release with new, free content planned.


Rather than user procedural generation, dungeons in Blightbound are handcrafted by the developers. This means every level has been created and curated by the devs to give players the best possible experience. Additionally, there are hundreds of items for players to loot and craft which will improve their heroes and their chances of survival.

A meta-game element also exists in Blightbound as players will be able to recruit builders and other tradespeople to help construct their mountain top refuge.

Other features include;

  • Battle through three distinct lands, each with several dungeons to conquer, including the eerie Gravemark, the oppressive Underhold, and precarious Blood Ridge.
  • Distinct class roles that reward team play and powerful ultimate abilities that charge from fulfilling your role. Block damage as a warrior, interrupt enemies as an assassin or heal your allies as a mage.
  • A stunning mix of hand-painted characters and real time 3D models and lighting effects.

Blightbound will head to Steam Early Access later this year.
