Heroes of Shadow Guard - Iron 27 Inc
We just became aware of a bug in tutorial on version 1.9.13 that causes the game to crash once exiting Dema's Labyrinth. We have temporarily set 1.9.12 as the default build and will have a permanent fix for 1.9.13 uploaded shortly. If you installed 1.9.13 and experienced this bug, you should be able to play as normal afterward. Our apologies for the inconvenience.

Happy Raiding!

New Features
  • Faction Raids! Work with your team members to design an epic Faction Labyrinth and wage war on opposing Factions.

  • Labyrinth and Worker Den Icons have been redesigned to more closely fit the HoSG visual style.

Cautious Optimism
  • We are thrilled to bring you all these major updates, but are also fully aware of the bugs that may accompany them. We have done a fair amount of testing in-house, but we can never fully simulate what hundreds of real players will encounter. Please be patient and use the Bug Reporter in the settings menu to let us know of any problems you may encounter.

    Happy Raiding!

Team up with faction members to build and raid Faction Mega Labyrinths!

In an effort to offer more mid and late game-play variety, we're excited to begin work on this awesome game mode. We still have a week or two to go before Faction Labyrinths are visible in your territory, but you may notice their mention in your Faction Fund in the meantime.

We're also working on other late game features such as Elite Guards and an epic Third Saga with a new Hero and 2 new Legendary Guards!

Happy Raiding!
