Publisher Versus Evil and developer Tim Conkling have announced that the turn-based strategy digital board game, Antihero, is available now for pre-order. Along with this announcement, we also got a brand new trailer, and new details on the game's pre-order offer and Deluxe Edition.
The Standard Edition of Antihero will roll out at $14.99/â‚¬14.99/£11.99. There's also a Deluxe Edition for die-hard thieves and evildoers, which includes the complete game plus the official soundtrack by musician Harry Mack with a contribution bonus track by Steven Gregan. The Deluxe Edition will retail for $19.99. In addition to this, gamers will get a 20% pre-order discount off the retail price at launch.
Set against the backdrop of a gas-lit Victorian underworld, players take on the role of a Master Thief and have to employ a number of underhanded and ruthless tactics to dominate each territory before their opponent does.
Antihero will get the first DLC pack, "The Book Club" Master Thief Character Pack, for FREE. This pack contains four Master Thief skins based on well-known literary characters: Miss Alice, Ebeneezer Scrooge, Sherlock Holmes, and Tiny Tim.
"Antihero is the quintessential experience for any turn-based strategy fan who likes a game that not only has loads of character and great art, but also requires some in-depth thinking and gameplay tactics," commented Versus Evil General Manager, Steve Escalante. "The FREE DLC character pack, which draws inspiration from Victorian era literary characters, just adds more content to an already rich game world."
Antihero releases this Spring on PC, Mac and mobile devices.
