Roguelike RPG ‘For The King’ Heads to Consoles Next Month

Citizens, I have an announcement! Curve Digital and Ironoak Games have announced that their critically acclaimed roguelike RPG For The King is heading to PlayStation 4 on May 7, Nintendo Switch on May 9, and Xbox One on May 10 with a 20% launch discount.

For The King isn’t an RPG that players can get through by just exploring about and spamming the “Attack” button. Nay, it’s a strategic RPG that blends tabletop and roguelike elements in a challenging adventure that spans multiple realms. Players constantly need to think of what the next best move is in every turn-based battle, as failure to do so will result in severe consequences, like death, of course.

With its procedurally generated world, Fahrul, to explore full of quests and events, players can expect to go on multiple epic adventures for the sake of the King. But there’s no need to go alone, dear adventurers, since For The King lets players buddy-up with fellow adventurers via local co-op or online multiplayer.  No matter which console version you play, expect to spend a good chunk of time exploring all that For The King has to offer.

Some might be wondering, “Well, what’s the game’s story?” I have the answer you all seek. In For The King, the King is dead, murdered by an unknown assailant. Now the once peaceful kingdom of Fahrul is in chaos. With nowhere left to turn and stretched beyond her means, the queen has put out a desperate plea to the citizens of the land to rise up and stem the tide of impending doom. So, it’s up to the player to step in, and put an end to all the chaos that’s happening in Fahrul — which is easier said than done.

Brining For The King to consoles was a no brainer for the publisher as Michael Fisher, product manager at Curve Digital shared via a press release, “After an incredibly successful debut on PC, For The King has become one of our most prolific titles”. The console versions of For The King will include every single update and DLC that’s been released for the PC version, so those that pick up any of the console versions won’t have the ‘inferior’ version by any means.
