Cooperative multiplayer RPG The Dark Eye: Book of Heroes will invite players into the Land of Aventuria this summer. Book of Heroes is inspired by the old school classics of the genre such as Baldur’s Gate and Neverwinter Nights with party-based gameplay and isometric view. The game also features a deep and robust character creation system all wrapped up in a setting based on Germany’s best-selling tabletop RPG world that goes back to 1984.
“We couldn’t be more excited to bring this beloved tabletop franchise to the digital world,” said Marc Wardenga, CEO of Wild River. “With over 35 years of tabletop evolution to reference, The Dark Eye: Book of Heroes is the perfect setting for fans of old-school RPGs, and the team at Random Potion has done an incredible job of bringing it to life on the PC.”

- Extensive Character Creation: Choose from 12 different professions and four classic species with customizable appearances and unique quests, tasks, and agendas
