Wild River to Launch Tabletop-inspired Co-op Multiplayer RPG The Dark Eye: Book Of Heroes this Summer
Wild River Games, German publisher of console hit Windstorm, in close collaboration with developer Random Potion and rights owner Ulisses Spiele, will be bringing Germany’s number one tabletop role-playing game world The Dark Eye to PC with The Dark Eye: Book of Heroes, this summer.
The Dark Eye: Book of Heroes hearkens back to the glory days of computer role-playing games like Baldur’s Gate and Neverwinter Nights with its party-based, cooperative gameplay and a beautiful and extensive world showcased in a classic isometric view. Continuing in this tradition, Book of Heroes features a deep and robust character creation system all wrapped up in a setting based on Germany’s best-selling tabletop RPG world that goes back to 1984.
Marc Wardenga, CEO of Wild River expressed his excitement for the project saying
“We couldn’t be more excited to bring this beloved tabletop franchise to the digital world, […] With over 35 years of tabletop evolution to reference, The Dark Eye: Book of Heroes is the perfect setting for fans of old-school RPGs, and the team at Random Potion has done an incredible job of bringing it to life on the PC.”
Based in the popular The Dark Eye universe, Book of Heroes sends players on an exciting journey through the lands of Aventuria to hack, slash, sneak, steal, and connive their way through an expansive role-playing experience. The game features an immersive and robust character creation system that will allow players to combine an enormous variety of traits and skills to ensure a true tabletop-inspired experience. Multiple fantasy racial backgrounds, professions, and skills help layers create incredibly well-rounded adventurers!
