game release date for PC:
Designed for the Iratus PC platform: Lord of the Dead is a fantasy RPG with roguelike elements embedded in the world. The production shows far-reaching inspiration from the popular Darkest Dungeon from Red Hook Studios. Russian independent studio Unfrozen is responsible for creating Iratus: Lord of the Dead.
The player takes on the role of the title Iratus - a powerful necromancer, once defeated and "killed" by great heroes. Having awakened again to life and freed himself from eternal bondage, the sorcerer decides to take revenge and remind the world of what true evil is.
In the Unfrozen Studios production our task is to conquer the world with the help of undead armies (e.g. skeletons, zombies, banshee or vampires). As in Darkest Dungeon, we will lead our troops (up to four men) to the battle within the expanded turn-based combat system. The clashes are characterized by a high level of difficulty. During the breaks between them, we develop our base and gain access to further types of units and capabilities. Due to the characteristic profession of the main character, we have, among other things, the ability to create new soldiers from ... pieces of fallen enemies.
Iratus can be developed on the basis of three skill paths - alchemy, tactical and magical skills. Each of them offers a different kind of profits (our necromancer can participate in the fight). What is important, our tactical decisions are of great importance and consequences, because - typically for the roguelike species - the death of a character is irreversible.
Iratus: Lord of the Dead has a single player mode only.
Published on PC Iratus: Lord of the Dead has an attractive, two-dimensional graphic design, based mainly on drawn charts and figures. Although from the point of view of technological advancement the game is unlikely to impress the enthusiasts of graphic waterworks, an interesting and very atmospheric artistic style can be liked.
