Embracer Group companies Asmodee Digital and Saber Interactive have announced a new partnership to bring the critically acclaimed tactical RPG Gloomhaven to video game consoles in 2023. Originally developed by Flaming Fowl Studios based on Isaac Childres’ award-winning board game, Gloomhaven has sold over 500k units throughout early access and its official launch on PC and Mac last year. The console editions of the game will be published by Asmodee Digital and developed by Saber.
“We’re excited to bring Gloomhaven to new players around the world with Saber Interactive. Partnerships like this are one of the great advantages we have available to us now as part of Embracer Group, and we look forward to tapping into even more opportunities to deliver for our fans in the future,” said Pierre Ortolan, CEO at Asmodee Digital.
“Our partnership on Gloomhaven embodies the very reason we brought Asmodee into the Embracer family,” said Matthew Karch, Saber Interactive CEO and co-founder and Embracer board member. “Games are truly a transmedia experience, and it’s amazing to have the opportunity to collaborate with the world’s best board game makers to bring their IP to consoles. This is the first of many announcements of its kind to come.”
Set in a medieval dark fantasy universe, Gloomhaven is a tactical RPG mixing card-based strategy and adventurous dungeon crawling, featuring solo play and online co-op. Sell your sword to any who can afford it, and carve your way through dark caves, dreadful forests, and terrifying dungeons filled with horrific monsters to reap your rewards… or die trying.
Lead your band of mercenaries through an unforgiving world where every choice can have life or death consequences. Each of Gloomhaven’s 17 unique characters comes with their own skills and more than 1,000 different abilities to master. The digital version of Gloomhaven has continued to grow since launch with new content and updates, including the recently released “Jaws of the Lion” DLC.
