Bracknell UK, 13th October 2017 

Unicorns, valiant knights and other benevolent fantasy creatures beware! Kalypso Media and the Absolute Evil are cackling to themselves in wicked anticipation as gloriously evil dungeon sim sequel Dungeons 3 is out now worldwide on Steam, and also available in physical and digital editions for Windows PC, Linux, PlayStation®4 and Xbox One in the EU and export territories. The North American physical and digital console releases will launch on 17th October. The EU and export physical retail version of Dungeons 3 arrives as an Extremely Evil Edition, containing a Throne Room DLC, digital soundtrack and special Dungeons 3 ‘Snotweiser’ drinks coaster, while the Steam release includes a Throne Room DLC and digital soundtrack.

The Dungeon Lord has returned once more, and this time is bringing all his dark forces together to offer gamers everywhere the biggest and best Dungeons experience yet. With a huge roster of units and rooms to build in your underground lair, co-op support for all game modes, re-worked overworld mechanics and a range of improvements to the multiplayer experience, Dungeons 3 has everything an evil heart could desire as gamers across PC and console platforms begin ‘evilfying’ the sickeningly colourful and fluffy fantasy overworld.

To celebrate the release of Dungeons 3 and the Dungeon Lord’s inevitable victory over the forces of good, the busy Snots at Kalypso Media are pleased to reveal the game’s slap-happy launch trailer, fittingly dubbed “Classical Beats”, which they hope will encourage gamers everywhere to employ some casual violence towards their minions in their quest for infamy. And that’s not all – to mark the occasion Kalypso has also confirmed a full livestream on its official Twitch channel, where gamers will be able to see the game played by the developers, ask any questions they have about the game, and let us know which adorable fantasy creature they’d like the team to stomp into oblivion. The fun starts today at 17:00 GMT – don’t miss it!

About Dungeons 3

In Dungeons 3, the Dungeon Lord has successfully united the forces of evil and established the roots of his dark empire, leading him to the next step in his diabolical quest: expansion! Through enticing the dark elf priestess Thalya from the fluffy clutches of the surface world to become his chief lieutenant, the Dungeon Lord has found a way to direct his campaign of conquest from the confines of his underground lair. With Thalya on the front line, and the united forces of evil to support her, players will have to use every trick in the book to best those do-gooders of the overworld, once and for all!

Unleash your dark side by creating a unique underground dungeon from a huge array of rooms, traps and structures. Raise the most terrifying army the world has ever seen, by choosing from despicable creatures such as orcs, succubae, zombies and much, much more. Then, once you have built your forces, emerge from the darkness and guide your army to the light of the overworld, where you will corrupt the land and dispatch anything even vaguely heroic, cute or unicorn-shaped. And in a first for the Dungeons series, experience randomly generated levels, so that no two sessions are alike – never-ending fun for any evil conqueror!

Features:

  • The dungeon manager you’ve been waiting for: Dungeons 3 is the biggest, best, and evil-est dungeon sim yet, topped off with a fully reworked overworld RTS mode.
  • Under new management: Command the united forces of evil under the guidance of new character Thalya and lead them to victory.
  • Size does matter: Extensive single player campaign with 20 missions and more than 20 hours of playtime, randomly generated levels, a brand-new co-op mode for two players, more rooms, and more unique abilities.
  • Speak no evil: The fan-favourite Dungeons narrator is back with his unmistakable voice, continuing the Dungeons legacy in the best way possible.
Dungeons 3 is available now worldwide on Steam, and also available in physical and digital editions for Windows PC, Linux, PlayStation®4 and Xbox One in the EU and export territories. The North American physical and digital console releases will launch on 17th October. Review code is available – please contact the PR team with your preferred platform or request access via Keymailer.
