The World of Twelve is a tiny, little planet in the far corner of the Krosmoz. It is home to millions of adventurers who spend their days dreaming about how to get their hands on Dofus (dragon eggs with amazing powers). However, all is not well on their peaceful planet. Demons from a parallel dimension watch the simple adventurers, biding their time before they can snatch the planet’s inhabitants away to fight in head-to-head battles for their amusement. Isn’t that just like a Demon?
The highly-anticipated Krosmaster Arena 2.0 will be released by CMON Games and Ankama this Friday, October 21st at your FLGS. Very soon you’ll be able to step into the oversized shoes of one of the Demons, select a team of adventurers, and have them battle in an arena for your own twisted amusement.
The second edition of Krosmaster Arena features eight exclusive characters from DOFUS the movie, each represented by highly-detailed and fully-painted miniatures. The arena itself is transformed into a three-dimensional battlefield full of obstacles and scenery that will have you stretching your tactical muscles to gain an advantage.
Krosmaster Arena is played over a series of turns in which players can move their arena fighters, or Krosmasters, around the battlefield and attack opponents. You’ll spend Movement and Action points to corner your opposition, hopefully landing some critical blows. Your adventurers won’t be limited to battling with just their fists. Each character has their own set of Attack Spells that can be very effective in combat. Not only that, they also wield Special Powers that will come in handy in a number of different situations. The team you assemble is going to have some built in strategy based on the Spells and Powers they possess. This makes the choice of characters pretty darn important. The goal is to KO your opponents by reducing their hit points to zero. The fight to be the last one standing will be a fierce one.
Besides kidnapping a bunch of innocent adventurers to fight for their entertainment, the Demons aren’t all bad. The Krosmasters will have an opportunity to earn Demonic Rewards throughout the course of the game. Boosts grant an immediate bonus to the character who receives them, like the ability to shoot a Lightning Bolt at an opponent. Buffs are temporary benefits that last until the start of the character's next turn, like adding power to certain types of Spells. The Demons have also scattered Equipment like weapons and outfits around the arena for Krosmasters to get their hands on. Finding them can give your Arena team a serious edge.
The rules of the duel are easy to pick up, and before you know it, you’ll be a battle-hardened veteran of the arena. Krosmaster Arena 2.0 offers variants for up to four players to enter the arena with either a two-on-two fight, or everyone for themselves. It’s a royal rumble that you won’t soon forget.
Get down to your FLGS and pick up Krosmaster Arena 2.0 on Friday, October 21st. Everyone has that bit of demon in them that would love to have warriors do battle for their amusement. This is the game that will let you do it! Learn more about Krosmaster Arena 2.0 here.
