Armello Gets Cute New Characters, Release Date Announced For September 1st
Two new furry friends are joining the cast of charming characters in Armello. It's also been announced that it'll officially be released on September 1st 2015 for PC, Mac, Linux and on the PlayStation 4.
Armello's new band of bushy heroes will be playable at PAX Prime. Zosha of Rat Clan and Barnaby of Rabbit Clan.
The Rat Clan is getting someone very special and unique, Zosha, the Whisper. She can take advantage of the cover of night and goes into Stealth every sunset. Taking advantage of that, Zosha can outmaneuver her competition, avoid aggressive heroes and also skulk around and take advantage up on those who least expect it. Her low body stat means she must be careful to pick the right battles, but her unusually strong fight makes her a tough competitor to defend against, especially when her opponent can't see her coming.
Barnaby, Screwloose, is the newest addition to the Rabbit Clan. He is an impressive tinkerer allowing him to swap items in and out of his inventory freely, to adapt to any given situation. This makes him highly useful. His self-made armor grants him a very high body stat which allows him to survive several heavy attacks from other characters. A moderate fight score means he can also deliver some good damage of his own too.
These new characters and the original four that have been playable thus far in Early Access will be fully available to adventure with at PAX Prime in Seattle August 28th through the 31st 2015. So be sure to stop by if you're there and check out the latest in the

Armello is a dazzling adventure that combines traditional RPG elements with the strategic gameplay of card and board games, so you can create a personal experience centered around your own story. It's a mashup like you wouldn't believe, exemplifying the best of all of those game types in one fantastically animated game.
Armello takes players to a vibrant magical world tinged with darkness and throws them into a struggle for power against other players and the mad lion king who is being slowly corrupted by a mysterious dark force called the Rot. After choosing a character from one of four animal clans, each with their own strengths and weaknesses, players fight for their chance to ascend the throne as the lion king terrorizes his subjects and sinks further into insanity.
There are no safe havens in the world of Armello. Gamers must watch out for the king's loyal guards, evil banes spawned by the Rot and other power-hungry characters as they move, fight and quest across the board to claim the crown and rule the land.
