With the early access release date of summer 2019 fast approaching, Asmodee Digital has now unveiled the first four playable characters of Gloomhaven, its PC adaptation of the beloved tabletop game. Reflecting the game’s key elements of strategy, planning, and making your choices count, the characters already open up a wide range of playstyles and possibilities. We’ll give you a breakdown of everything we know so far.
The first reveal, Savvas Cragheart, is a tank. A highly versatile character, with a range of different playstyles to offer, the Cragheart is famed for its ability to smash through enemies, deal some serious AoE damage, and heal teammates in more or less equal measure, though not without some occasional friendly-fire.
Next on the roster is the Orchid Spellweaver, who is both the most adaptable of Gloomhaven’s mages and the most complex starting class to get to grips with. Ideally suited to attacking from the sidlelines, given her low health but excellent high-damage options, which involve big AoE and single-target attacks, the Orchid Spellweaver is a well-rounded choice that also adds key support capabilities to a team. Abilities include healing, damage prevention, and summoning minions.
