BALTIMORE,MD – November 2nd, 2017 – Independent video game publisher Versus Evil, in partnership with independent developer Tim Conkling, have announced that turn-based strategy digital board game, Antihero, has added multi-language support that now includes French, German, Spanish, Italian, Polish and Portuguese for Brazil as well as new content in the form of the Armello DLC Pack. The Armello Homage Master Thief Character Pack contains four Armello Master Thief character skins based on well-known characters from the Armello universe: Thane, Twiss, Mercurio and The King.

In addition to the new skins and multi-language support a new free multiplayer map ‘The Agency’ gives players a new location to commit their dastardly deeds, and all with a bribery related twist.

Armello is a fantastic game created by the League of Geeks team.” commented Versus Evil General Manager, Steve Escalante. “Both games live in the strategy, board game world with unique graphics and wonderful aesthetics.  We couldn’t be happier to team up with them in creating some cool characters for Tim Conkling’s Antihero. Indie helping indies is just fun. We hope you all enjoy.”

Set against the backdrop of a gas-lit Victorian underworld, players take on the role of a Master Thief and have to employ a number of underhanded and ruthless tactics to dominate each territory before their opponent does.

In Antihero players can test their thievery skills in the story-driven campaign mode or challenge friends in the highly competitive timed ‘Live Match’ and regular ‘Casual Match’ multiplayer modes to see who’s the top thief!  Operating in a gas-lit Victorian city overrun by corruption and greed your task is to manage your thieves’ guild, recruit street urchins, hire gangs, steal everything and bribe, blackmail and assassinate your way to victory!  Resource management is key to growing your guild and utilizing your nefarious assets. Spend your ill-gotten riches to hire new recruits, upgrade your thieving skills and acquire deadly weapons. Gold is a thief’s best friend!

Antihero is available now through Steam and itch.io The standard edition of Antihero is priced $14.99/€14.99/£11.99, with a Deluxe Edition for die-hard thieves and evildoers priced at $19.99, which includes the complete game plus the official soundtrack by musician Harry Mack with a contribution bonus track by Steven Gregan.
