Show the Heroes who´s Boss - Daedalic Entertainment´s Dark RPG Iratus: Lord of the Dead arrives on 24th July

Dominate your enemies and turn their corpses into monsters you control in this challenging new roguelike from Unfrozen

HAMBURG, Germany, 2nd July, 2019 Daedalic Entertainment and new Russian development studio Unfrozen are excited to announce the delightfully evil roguelike RPG Iratus: Lord of the Dead will launch into Steam Early Access for Windows PC on 24th July. Inverting the classic fantasy RPG tale, Iratus: Lord of the Dead casts players as the newly resurrected necromancer Iratus on a bloody quest for vengeance against those who imprisoned him in his underground tomb.

Wielding an array of occult powers that would make the most talented conjurers recoil in terror, Iratus can use the blood, guts, bones and souls of vanquished enemies to create monstrous pawns to serve as his own personal army. With four different skill trees to master (Alchemy, Magic, Ire and Destruction) and nearly 100 different minion skills to unlock, players will have plenty of options to defeat their foes in turn-based combat and the giant dungeon overworld.

With permadeath affecting not only minions but enemies as well, Iratus: Lord of the Dead is a devilishly difficult roguelike that challenges your strategic prowess on all fronts. Body parts and essence are a finite resource in the overworld, so you’ll need to think carefully about what you conjure and how it’ll help you exact revenge.
