Rogue Lords, the roguelike in which you cheat using the game interface, is now available on Xbox One! First released on PC last year, we are very excited to now be releasing it on Xbox, the next major step in our adventure. We hope you will have a great time playing as the Devil and leading the forces of Evil to victory.
Play as the Devil and Control Iconic Evil Geniuses
Years after suffering a crushing defeat at the hands of the Demon Hunters, the Devil has returned to the lands of Men to re-establish his grip on mortals and to wreak his revenge. Still weakened, he surrounds himself with nine infamous evil geniuses such as Dracula, the Headless Horseman, the White Lady and Baron Samedi, and sets out in search of legendary artifacts that will enable him to regain his former power.
As the Prince of Hell, in each run you control a team of three characters with unique skills, develop their synergies and lead them in merciless turn-based combats on any mortals who dare block your path. Unlike the Disciples, the Devil has no physical incarnation: we decided not to give him a specific form so that everyone is free to picture him as they will.
Use the Game Interface to Cheat
Nothing will stop you, especially not any rules those foolish mortals follow! In exchange for some of your life force, you can manipulate your Disciples’ and opponents’ health gauges, steal your enemies’ positive statuses, open doorways on the map, force the scales to tip in your favour during interactive events, and more. All of this will enable you to overturn a situation at a crucial point during your run!
When we created Rogue Lords, we wanted to make sure the gameplay for the Devil was not only really fun, but it was also specific to the character himself, and cheating was perfect for such a supreme manipulator. That’s also why losing a run doesn’t mean a thing to him: he refuses to accept defeat and alters reality by rebooting history until he’s satisfied.
Let Evil Reign Over the New World
Your objective is to regain your power and crush two enemy factions: the Demon Hunters, who once drove you from the Earth, and the Sanctua Lumen, a new sect that has gained considerable influence during your absence and mercilessly tracks down all those who serve you. By completing the events that lie on your route, you can increase the region’s terror gauge, sign treaties with humans, collect souls that you can exchange for upgrades for your Disciples… and, above all, give mortals good reason to cower in terror before you once again.
If you like roguelike games, this game and its challenges are for you. We hope you will have a diabolical time forcing the New World to buckle beneath the yoke of the Devil in Rogue Lords, now available on Xbox One!
