London, November 21st, 2018 - IronOak Games and Curve Digital announced today that For the King’s new DLC adventure Into The Deep is out now, for FREE, no gold coins required!

Available as a new update, this exciting new story chapter focuses on the vast oceans of Fahrul. With incredible sea battles, fearsome enemies, awesome boats and a whole lot more, Into The Deep will keep players entertained until well after the grog has run dry.    

In Into The Deep, players come face to face with the Fishfolk. Upon further investigation, it becomes clear that the Fishfolk are trying to summon the Kraken God, their terrifying deity that will flood the world and devour any survivors. Players must explore the oceans and islands of Fahrul, finding and destroying the sources of the Kraken God’s power, buried deep within the many Water Temples across the sea.

Featuring nine new enemy types, new weapons, four boat variants, new enemy and friendly NPC encounters, new outfits, armours and trinkets, Into The Deep is a huge new journey into uncharted seas for the intrepid adventurers of Fahrul. And of course, there’s one thing a pirate never travels the seas without… guns! That’s right, Into the Deep introduces a brand new weapon class! Players can now take on enemies armed with the Blunderbuss, Musket or Hand Cannon.  

Having already sold over 200,000 units on PC, For The King is heading to consoles in 2019. For The King is available now on Steam: https://store.steampowered.com/app/527230/For_The_King/

About For The King

Mixing up a challenging blend of strategy, JRPG combat, and rogue-like elements, For The King features both a single player experience as well as the ability to play cooperatively both online and locally. Taking place in the gorgeous, hexagonal kingdom of Fahrul, players must strategically explore and battle their way through the fairytale, low-poly landscape in a bid to discover and survive, lest they succumb to death.

Each play through is made unique with procedural maps, quests, and events. Players must brave the relentless elements, fight the wicked creatures, sail the seas and delve into the dark underworld. Brutal, turn-based combat unfolds using a unique slot system for attacks and special abilities while herbs can be gathered to heal wounds and cure maladies. Safe camps protect from the horror that nightfall brings but players must remember, they do not do this for the riches or fame but for their village and for their realm. For The King!
