Asmodee Digital Announces Arkham Horror: Mother's Embrace
Based on the co-op horror board game where you play as iconic investigators
In the Arkham Horror board game, you and your friends are investigators who will be exploring and defending the town against creatures as portals to another dimension begin to open up all over town. You must work together to close the portals to keep the Ancient Ones from making it through.
This new dive into the Arkham universe was developed by Artefacts Studio, featuring an original story.
You and your friends will face off against supernatural beings in the 1920's!
This one looks very intriguing but what's the plot you ask?
The year is 1926, and a professor of astronomy is found dead in her mansion, the apparent victim of a heinous murder. Players must pick from 12 of the most iconic protagonists from the Arkham Horror universe, each with a unique skill set, and assemble a team of investigators to uncover the secrets behind this mysterious death.
Awesome, a Sherlock Holmes game that I can play with friends set in the 1920's with lovecraftian creatures. I most definitely will be getting down and dirty in this one. I'm almost bored being ghost hunters with my friends.
As investigators face off against Lovecraftian horrors, they will descend deeper into the depths of madness, affecting their level of sanity and causing traumas that will impact the course of their investigation. Along with facing curious science, living nightmares and a sinister cult, players will combat an array of enemies in turn-based combat, all while attempting to retain their sanity.
This game will be available for preorder on Steam now but will eventually be purchasable on the Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One in 2021.
Arkham Horror: Mother's Embrace will be priced at $19.99.
