A new trailer revealing the release date has also been published:
Pre-orders for the console edition have also been discounted for two versions of the game. Both the Mercenaries and Gold Editon of Gloomhaven will be 10% off pre-launch, so if you’ve been thinking about grabbing a copy of these editions, you might want to do so before its September 18 release date. The Mercenaries Edition includes the base game as well as the “Solo Scenarios: Mercenary Challenges” DLC, whereas the Gold Edition comes with everything from the Mercenaries Edition plus four skins and the “Jaws of the Lion” DLC.
Gloomhaven is a highly-rated tactical RPG that’s currently out on PC. Here’s the official description of Gloomhaven via the game’s Steam Store page:
FROM GLOOM, ONLY GREED AND DEATH EMERGE…
Whether you are drawn to the lands of Gloomhaven by the call of adventure or an avid desire for the glimmer of gold in the dark, your fate will surely be the same…
Lead your band of mercenaries through this unforgiving place, where every choice is crucial. Carve your way through terrifying dungeons, dreadful forests and dark caves filled with horrific monsters to reap your rewards… or die trying.
Sell your sword to anyone who can afford it, may they be city officials or corrupt cultists. You are paid to get results and not ask questions. Where will you draw the line?
17 UNIQUE MERCENARIES
Gloomhaven is a tactical RPG and a digital adaptation of the ultimate strategy board game by Isaac Childres (the highest-rated board game of all time on https://BoardGameGeek.com ). Set in a unique medieval dark fantasy universe, Gloomhaven rewards strategic planning and problem solving. Face this dark world alone or in online co-op for up to 4 players!
Explore the world in a band of 2 to 4 mercenaries. Each of the 17 unique characters comes with their own skills and more than 1,000 different abilities to master! Prepare your deck of ability cards before setting out to explore the dark caves and dreadful forest of Gloomhaven through quests and events.
Once inside a dungeon, engage in tactical turn-based combat by selecting two cards for each mercenary on every turn. You can only use the top half of one and the bottom half of another, so plan accordingly!
Move up your hired blades on the hex grid terrain to take advantage of the dungeon’s environment. Set up deadly combos and unleash devastating powers but be wary of the cost. Cards are a resource as scarce and crucial as your life points, so watch out for exhaustion. Every choice has life or death consequences.
THOUSANDS OF ABILITIES, PERKS, GEAR & ENCHANTMENTS
Hone your abilities during the game with enhancements and perks, while your power increases with level ups and new equipment. You need every advantage you can to survive here. So, gear up your band of mercenaries, chase powerful artifacts, buy the favor of the Great Oak, and never let your guard down.
EXPERIENCE THE BOARD GAME CAMPAIGN
Adapted from the original Gloomhaven Board Game, this branching campaign of 95 story missions pits your greed against your morality. Many powerful opponents are vying for control over the city of Gloomhaven while others are looking for ancient crypts and forgotten artefacts. You could always side with the inhabitants, but it may not pay well…
Whatever your path may be, it will be paved with difficult choices.

Created in collaboration with the community during the early access, the Guildmaster adventure has more than 160 exclusive digital missions that allow you to experience another facet of Gloomhaven with new storylines, quests, map and NPCs.
