NEW YORK — April 18, 2013 — Paradox Interactive, a publisher of games and a subterranean architecture enthusiast, is unleashing a host of devilishly devious updates and additions to Impire, the award-winning action-strategy title from Cyanide Studio. Impire, a winner of this year’s “Best in Play” at GDC Play, has received new single-player, multiplayer, and customization content to add new perils for both heroes and imps everywhere. The new content is free for Impire players and is available now.
Impire’s multiplayer modes, now officially out of Beta for both PvP and co-op play, have gained new game types:
° Hell on Wheels: players must help their demonic forces escort a wagon into the enemy base, while preventing rival players from doing the same to them.
° Survival: Co-op mode where demons protect their own unit from incoming heroes while attempting to build power.
Impire also adds a host of new options for gameplay and demon design, including new runes with different powers, new ways to customize and evolve Báal-Abaddon, and new game settings options that allow easier management of those pesky heroes’ ladders.
For those not yet acquainted with the sordid tale of Báal-Abaddon in Impire, the game is available at a wicked discount right now through Steam’s “Midweek Madness” sale. Impire puts players in the nasty little hooves of a world-conquering demon – summoned by a bumbling sorcerer and trapped in the form of a pathetic imp as his servant. Through cunning plans and ruthless destruction, Báal must build a dungeon to raise his armies, fend off invading heroes, and dispatch his minions to do his bidding.
A live stream will allow gamers to scry upon the fiendish acts of game producer Joe Fricano as he hosts a live stream of Impire tomorrow. To see get in on the diabolical action, broadcasting at 6:00 p.m. GMT / 8:00 p.m. CEST / 11:00 a.m. PDT, head over to the official Paradox Interactive channel on TwitchTV at www.twitch.tv/paradoxinteractive.
