Asmodee Digital announced that it will publish developer Event Horizon’s non-linear action RPG Dark Envoy. The game was originally announced in August 2019 and will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam sometime in 2022.
Asmodee Digital’s head of operations Nicolas Godement commented on the announcement in a press release, saying:
“We are delighted to partner today with the gifted Event Horizon team to publish Dark Envoy, an innovative tactical RPG. As we are expanding our editorial scope towards new genres and new audiences, Dark Envoy fits perfectly with our desire to offer players increasingly varied and immersive gaming experiences. We look forward to allowing players to discover the unique world of Dark Envoy and are excited to support Event Horizon throughout this journey.”
Event Horizon CEO Krzysztof Monkiewicz:
“For Dark Envoy, we were looking for a publisher that shares our utmost respect for the gaming community and is willing to experiment with gameplay mechanics and look for ways to refresh the RPG genre. Asmodee Digital is focused on delivering high-quality entertainment, and that fits perfectly with our mission to make our games a unique experience for all players.”
The game’s description via its Steam page can be seen below:
Malakai and Kaela are children of war refugees, living the day-to-day life of adventurers as they seek ancient relics and forgotten places. Soon they too will have to learn how to survive in the chaos of war, as blood and tragedy will mark the beginning of their true journey.
Dark Envoy merges together a rich, non-linear story and tactical, party-based combat with dynamic gameplay flow and high-quality visuals and effects. Further, it blends modern concepts with classic genre tropes, creating a distinct and unique RPG gaming experience.
