MELBOURNE – Sept. 22, 2022 – League of Geeks has today announced that their next upcoming title will be Solium Infernum, the strategy game from Hell, a re-imagined vision of Vic Davis’ cult-classic game of politics, intrigue, and betrayal.
The demonic turn-based experience is being reimagined by Armello creators, League of Geeks, experienced in delivering great strategy games to millions of players around the world, with a planned PC launch in 2023.
In this brand new title players will be able to go deep into a reimagined version of 2009’s Solium Infernum, complete with all-new single-player scenarios and asynchronous multiplayer matches that will require cunning moves and political wit to outplay their opponents. The game will be modernized and built in 3D with a totally updated visual interface to bring it in line with League of Geek’s unique and acclaimed aesthetic and production values.
In Solium Infernum, all participants take turns simultaneously; with each player only able to see their enemies’ schemes unfold after making their own choices. The game will offer a full range of experiences, from 2-4 hour single-player campaigns to epic, weeklong six-player multiplayer matches that require only a few minutes to play a day.
“The original Solium Infernum is one of the most remarkable video games ever made. Its evocative, Milton-inspired vision of Hell and deep focus on political intrigue are unlike anything else on the market,” said Trent Kusters, Co-Founder and Director, League of Geeks. “We are honoured and ecstatic to bring Solium Infernum back into the limelight it has always deserved!”
The Prince of Darkness has abandoned his Throne, and dark Archfiends now set wicked plans in motion to claim Pandaemonium and rule over Hell. Outwit rivals as an Archfiend, using deep systems to master devious political and military strategies. Bluff, backstab, and sow treachery on the path to the Throne.
Select one of eight Archfiends at the start of a match, then customise the villain’s defining Brands to suit different playstyles. Choose character Schemes during the campaign, increase Power levels, and more. Master evil’s five spheres: Wrath, Deceit, Prophecy, Destruction, and Deceit. Command more than 50 different legions and demonic Praetors to overtake Places of Power and claim Artifacts for wicked boons.
