Update #94: Major Episode 4 Story Expansion



We are excited to drop a major Episode 4 story update this weekend. Adding 12 new dungeons, crawling with 15 new enemy types and some majorly nasty bosses, the enemies here will test your late-game groups' strength and endurance. Across the new territory, there are more than 120 new possible loot drops, as well as story arcs that result in Legendary Items for both Kyera and Vincent.

To get started, if you have a group already in Freeport, visit the main palace or find Balgair at the tavern to talk to him about Laranda d'Colliar.

This is another major step forward in the story, and it is packed full of completely new and exciting stuff. We've been pressing the limit as far as we can, and can't wait for everyone to experience the final chapter.

After this update, we are planning a few quick releases to improve early-game crafting, and then we will be done some smaller updates to ramp up to the final story update for Episode 4 and in fact, for the game!

Please report any bugs or issues you have, we will work hard to fix them fast.

Thanks to everyone leaving a review for the game!

Update #93: Save 50% + Crafting System Updates



This week, we've made some improvements to the crafting system, focusing on making the tuning rules better and more transparent.

Tuning is more likely to turn up a crafting result with stats that match your tuning gear, and we've made sure that the tuning item is displayed on the post-crafting screen so that you can see it and the crafting result you got, as well as being able to take a single screenshot to capture both.

There is a very lively discussion about crafting happening on our forum if you want to see some of the results others are getting as well as great Q&A:

About This Game

Command your party of four heroes as they fight to protect the last remnants of humanity. Born in a time of warring gods and dark powers, your four unlikely heroes embark on a grim journey set in the sprawling and immense post-apocalyptic medieval world of Steel.

It is the dawn of the Seventy First Year after the world has fallen. Four of the Thirteen Gods rose up against their creator, the All-Father, and destroyed him in a cataclysmic event. In the following years of darkness and ruin, the kingdoms of man fell in war and flame. In the final days before all was lost, under the guidance of an ancient order of druids, the survivors retreated to a mysterious underground labyrinth; the Underdeep. Now, in the Underdeep, the last remnants of humanity are scratching out a living and trying to rebuild a society, but are quickly discovering that evil has followed them beneath the surface.

Heroes of Steel is a tactical turn-based RPG in which you lead a group of four unique characters, each with their own talents, special powers, and abilities on their quest through the world of Steel. Engage in tactical combat with the ferocious, devious, and magical enemies who threaten humanity's last settlements. You must decide how to develop each character’s individual strategy in order to build a powerful and dynamic team capable of triumphing over the impossible odds. As you traverse the sprawling world of Steel, your party will face a myriad of challenges, battles, extensive mazes and fearsome enemies of all varieties.

Savor full character customization, deciding how to increase your attributes, skills, and powerful talents. Equip each of your characters with a variety of weapons, armor, and up to three mundane or magical accessories. As your party explores the dungeons, cities and crypts of the world, you will decide the overall strategy and approach your team takes. Choose between hundreds of levels of talents and thousands of combinations of equipment.

Our indie role playing games dev team is actively continuing development to make this the top RPG. We are very receptive to feedback to help Heroes be the best RPG it can be.

With full control of every turn and aspect of your four characters, you can plan every turn with exacting control. Heroes was made for fans of adventure RPGs, board games, and roguelikes. If you enjoy strategy games or tactical RPGs, you will enjoy this classic RPG.
