With the arrival of Demeo’s Realm of the Rat King, it seems that early adopters of the virtual board game are going to be rewarded for their patience. Although the new additions do not significantly change how the game is played, the free update brings enough new elements that’ll make it worth revisiting. If you like Demeo but got tired of replaying the initial campaign, the new and free Realm of the Rat King might be exactly what you were waiting for.
You can see the trailer for the new expansion here:
This is what Realm of The Rat King’s adds to the title:
New environment: The sewers are dark and very dangerous. With endless threats lurking in the shadows, adventurers will want to stick together if they’re going to survive.
New enemies: Spore Fungus are filled to the brim with poison, so be sure to watch your step — and don’t let the multi-headed Gorgon catch your gaze, or you might just turn to stone!
New cards: Brighten your way with the trusty Torch card, treat any poisons with the new Antitoxin and go on the offensive with your brand new Web Bomb.
New boss: The Rat King is the last monster you’d want to be trapped with when you’re five levels underground, but that’s exactly where you’ll find this horrifying monarch that is literally bound to his subjects.
The developers have promised to increase Demeo’s depth with new expansions that will keep bringing new spells, maps, and enemies to the game. If you are not familiar with Demeo, make sure to check out our Demeo review to learn more about the game and how we rated it!
