"The Devil Is In The Details" In Rogue Lords, a New Turn-Based Rougelike

Rogue Lords is a new turn-based roguelike coming to all platforms later this year.

Rouge Lords is a new rougelike from developers Cyanide Studios and Leikir Studios where players step into the shoes of the devil, cheating their way to world domination. 

Rogue Lords features turn-based rougelike where players have the ability to bend the rules ever so slightly by actually breaking them in half. Return debuffs to your enemies, take down their health bar to secure victory, and do whatever it takes to achieve power.

A new gameplay trailer can be seen below, and details more of what players can expect ahead of launch. 

The trailer shows off the different abilities players will have in Devil Mode, which flips the switch of power in their favor. While in Devil Mode players can alter the rules of the game, even going so far as to lower enemy health bars so they die the next hit. The catch is that every time this is done, it also lowers the essence of the devil. Let essence run out, and a run is over. 

Along the way, players will also get to forge relationships with other NPCs and keep their own party powerful through different powers to defeat waves of foes.

Rogue Lords is currently slated to release on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch later this year. No firm release date has been shared. Stay tuned for more.
