A New Turn in the Demeo Realm with Fast-paced Battles and Strategic Depth
Resolution Games is set to launch its new strategy game, Demeo Battles, on November 9, taking a distinct route from its predecessor by focusing more on Player vs Player (PvP) online battles. This game, part of the Demeo Action Role-Playing System, invites players to a world inspired by tabletop miniature games.

In Demeo Battles, players can look forward to shorter play sessions filled with intensive battles spanning across a variety of maps. The gameplay revolves around buying units and cards to prepare for the battle, allowing players to execute devastating attacks or smart strategies to overpower their opponents. Matches are designed to be concise, usually taking between 15 and 20 minutes, which makes it a perfect fit for players looking for short play sessions.
The new game brings in a series of features including turn-based tactics where players face off in action-packed grid-based combats across ten different maps. Players must be cautious of “The Burn,” a gradually advancing flood of lava that can cause substantial damage.
With a gallery of 37 creatures available at launch, players can assemble a diverse team of minions ranging from rats and goblins to giant slimes, offering a dynamic and ever-evolving gameplay. Players can choose from seven classes of champions — including hunters, sorcerers, and barbarians — each bringing unique abilities to the battleground.
Demeo Battles also introduces a dual champion system, encouraging teamwork by bringing two champions to every match. It offers the flexibility to control both champions directly or to pair up with another player for a cooperative gameplay experience.
The game will be playable on various platforms including Meta Quest 2 and 3, and SteamVR headsets, as well as a non-VR PC version offering a complete flatscreen experience. A PC demo version is slated to be part of Steam Next Fest starting October 9.
The game will retail at $19.99, with pre-orders now open on Meta Quest and wish-listing available on Steam.
