Fantasy Flight Games, a leading publisher of tabletop board and card games, has announced the upcoming release of Act II, The Betrayer’s War, the much-anticipated expansion to the popular and critically acclaimed board game, Descent: Legends of the Dark. The expansion will be available in select retailers and the Asmodee store this fall at an MSRP of $159.99 USD.
Descent Act II is a sprawling and deeply cooperative dungeon crawler driven by player choice – all powered by an app that allows for games to run without a Game Master. The game’s immersive storyline is packed with twists and turns sure to thrill players of all skill levels. Campaigns can be played solo or with up to 4 players, requiring cooperation and skillful teamwork to overcome challenges.
The Betrayer’s War builds on the exhilarating dungeon-crawling adventure of its predecessor by introducing new villains, quests, and mechanics. The game sees players returning to Terrinoth, where they find themselves in an unlikely alliance with their greatest enemy, Waiqar the Betrayer. They have to work together to battle against armies of dragons and the sinister machinations of the Uthuk Y’llan. All six heroes from the original game return to defend their legacy, each equipped with a new hero card and a variety of abilities to aid them in their battle against the impending darkness.
“Descent has been a fan favorite for years, and this new installment is a natural evolution, introducing new mechanics and leveling up heroes for the next threat,” said Philip D. Henry, Lead Designer of Descent: Legends of the Dark. “Descent Act II builds on the core mechanics of the original so players can easily transition from one to the other. So finish up those campaigns now, and be ready to face the Dragonlord Levirax!”
