Fantasy Flight Games, a leading publisher of board and card games, has announced the release of Act II, The Betrayer’s War, for Descent: Legends of the Dark. The highly anticipated expansion to the popular and critically acclaimed board game Descent: Legends of the Dark. The expansion will be available at various retailers starting August 23, 2023.
Descent Act II is a comprehensive and highly cooperative dungeon crawler driven by player choice – all powered by an app that allows play without a game leader. The game’s immersive storyline is full of twists and turns that thrill players of all levels. Campaigns can be played solo or with up to 4 players and require cooperation and skillful teamwork to overcome challenges.
The Betrayer’s War builds on the exciting dungeon crawling adventure of its predecessor by introducing new villains, quests and mechanics. In the game, players return to Terrinoth, where they find themselves in an unlikely alliance with their greatest enemy, Waiqar the Betrayer. They must team up against armies of dragons and the sinister machinations of the Uthuk Y’llan. All six heroes from the original game return to defend their legacy, each equipped with a new hero card and a variety of skills to aid them in their battle against the looming darkness.
Descent has been a fan favorite for years, and this new installment is a natural evolution, introducing new mechanics and raising heroes to a higher level for the next threat,” said Philip D. Henry, Lead Designer of Descent: Legends of the Dark. “Descent Act II builds on the core mechanics of the original, allowing players to easily transition from one to another. So finish those campaigns now, and be ready to face the Dragonlord Levirax!”
