MythForce Release Date Revealed During ID@Xbox Showcase

Following a promising stint in Early Access development, MythForce finally has a release date. Thanks to the ID@Xbox showcase this afternoon, we now know the Saturday morning cartoon-inspired rogue-lite will have the power to release on September 12.

The 1.0 release will include a new third episode, sweeping changes to the progression system, as well as unlockable difficulty modes. On top of that, online drop-in/drop-out co-op is being implemented to team up (or disband) with friends on a whim seamlessly.

The release date announcement coincides with the start of ID@Xbox Demo Fest, which begins today on Xbox consoles and runs through July 17. Not only is MythForce playable on Microsoft hardware, but the Steam demo has been resurrected after a successful showing in Steam’s Next Fest last month. A new post on Valve’s game client boasts about the returning multiplayer-enabled sample, which landed at number thirty-six in the top fifty most-played demos during Next Fest.

For the uninitiated, MythForce is a multiplayer first-person rogue-lite from developer Beamdog where up to four players are inserted into the plate mail and tunics of a classic party of adventurers, each with unique weapons and abilities. Together, players fight through hordes of evil monsters in the hopes of collecting loot and gear to survive the dangers ahead. With a killer theme song and stunning visual style, both spot-on representations of radical 80’s cartoons such as Thundercats, Dungeons & Dragons, and He-Man, MythForce caught our attention from its first trailer last year. Those interested in playing a bigger portion of the game than the demo provides can buy into the Early Access version on the Epic Games Store before the full release right now.

September 12 is not only the launch for MythForce on Xbox Series X/S and PC, but its recently-announced PlayStation 4/5 and Switch versions also drop the same day. To see the game in action, check out the video above where our The Indie Informer’s Editor-in-Chief Jill Grodt takes up arms against the vampiric scourge Daedalus and his minions.
