The much-anticipated console version of the widely acclaimed board game, Gloomhaven, is coming soon.

With its launch scheduled for Sept. 19, 2023, every Gloomhaven Mercenaries Edition box will include the celebrated game and house an exclusive collectible card.

Gloomhaven propels players into an enthralling dark fantasy universe where they can explore the full range of the original 95 scenarios and event missions, as well as an exclusive Guildmaster campaign with over 160 more missions. This grand adventure allows players to unlock a myriad of abilities, perks, enhancements, and gear as they strive to assemble the most formidable mercenary team in the city of Gloomhaven.
