Developer Tactical Adventures has today revealed a new, premium campaign expansion for its acclaimed CRPG Solasta: Crown of the Magister. Called Lost Valley, it’s set to deliver a new story arc that runs parallel with the original campaign that players can jump right into at level 1. Lost Valley will launch next month, April 14, alongside free multiplayer support for existing players, who can try multiplayer early via a beta running from March 17-21, 2022.
The new campaign features new locations, enemies, nine new subclasses, and fresh dungeon maker environments. With adaptive difficulty and multiple endings, Tactical Adventures has expanded the freedom of choice available to players, and with one campaign lasting around 20 hours, there is infinite replayability due to these choices.
Here’s a synopsis of Lost Valley’s storyline from the developer:
This brand new campaign will see a party of adventurers delve deep into the idyllic Valley of the Dominion in search of a missing agent of the Principality of Masgarth, uncovering the old Manacalon ways that were forgotten once the Rift opened. With power dynamics and warring factions at play, there’s plenty to uncover as the party is forced to choose sides to survive.The premium DLC will arrive alongside multiplayer support, which will be available to all players for no additional cost.
Tactical Adventures has responded to fan requests for multiplayer support, meaning two to four players can soon enjoy the original story together, including all DLC content that has arrived since launch last year. Adventurers eager to get stuck into the multiplayer experience can try a beta from March 17-21, 2022, with all existing players able to get involved and collaborate.
If you missed our coverage of Solasta: Crown of the Magister before, it’s is a team-based CRPG with strategic, turn-based combat. The game puts a strong emphasis on character progression and role-playing mechanics, encouraging players to take advantage of each character’s strengths and weaknesses if they are to succeed.
Solasta is set in a dynamic and mysterious world that features elements of verticality, allowing players to use their surroundings as an element of strategy. There’s also a unique mechanic centered around light, which can be used to explore dark areas and damage enemy monsters but also draws attention to your party.
