Paradox Interactive has announced the release date for Impire, the upcoming dungeon strategy videogame from suitably deadly developer Cyanide Studio Montreal. Impire, which traps players in the not-so-intimidating form of a scheming imp and then tasks them with overtaking an entire kingdom, will be launching later this month.
The first-ever playthrough for Impire , dubbed “Imps Exposed”, has been unveiled in a new video, showing several minutes of raw, uncut footage from the first scenario of the dungeon management title. Within the playthrough, available below, players will get a glimpse at some of the base-management options and cutscenes, as well as a preview on how to dispatch troublesome humans who venture into the Impire.
Two pieces of bonus downloadable content (DLC) will be granted to players who pre-order Impire, including the Creatures of the Night pack, adding new fearsome monsters to their underground armies. Vicious Victorian Vampires will stalk the dungeon halls, walking their undead poodles, and nasty Medusas will stop enemies in their tracks. Plus, those who pre-order will be able to raise the demon of their choice with the Black and White pack, granting new in-game skins to their Imp – a sinister, pale white, or the darkest shade of black.
Paradox Interactive is now taking pre-orders for Impire at http://www.impiregame.com/buy, ahead of the videogame’s official release on 14th February 2013. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on Impire and other forthcoming titles from Paradox Interactive.
