Demeo Battles, an upcoming PvP version of the popular tabletop RPG, will launch as a standalone game.
Previously seen during the Resolution Games Showcase last December, Demeo Battles is a PvP version of the game that supports up to four players across two teams. Set on a more condensed map, it's a fast-paced alternative to standard co-op adventures in Demeo. Previously, Resolution didn't reveal how Battles would launch but in a new announcement, the studio confirmed it's releasing as a standalone title, though pricing details remain unconfirmed.
There isn't much else we can gather from this announcement. As a standalone release, that doesn't guarantee Battles will arrive on Demeo's existing platforms; PC VR, Quest, PSVR 2, Pico, PC and PS5. No platforms are currently listed on the official website and we've contacted Resolution Games for clarification. We will update this article if we learn more.
We had positive impressions in our hands-on session last December, calling it "a fantastic addition" perfect for quicker matches. You can read our Demeo Battles preview to learn more.
It’s a short, sweet and engaging new mode that will be a fantastic addition to Demeo’s multiplayer offering. While Demeo is one of our favorite social VR experiences, the regular co-op mode is on the longer side, even with mid-campaign saves. Battles looks set to be the perfect, bite-sized alternative, offering a quicker head-to-head option when you don’t have time for the full flagship Demeo experience.
Demeo Battles arrives later this year.
