Skulls of the Shogun, the critically praised turn-based strategy title from indie developer 17-Bit, already made its debut on PC and consoles, but unless your PC happened to be running Windows 8 you were left out. Next month, that’s set to change.
The developer today announced Skulls of the Shogun: Bone-A-Fide Edition, a beefed up version of the original, will be making its way to Steam next month, and you won’t need to be running Windows 8 to play it this time around.
“After the original game launched, we were delighted by all the positive reviews and player feedback, but realized there were a few features we could add to power-up Skulls and make it even better.” said Jake Kazdal, CEO of 17-Bit. “We’re delighted to bring that definitive version of Skulls of the Shogun to Steam, which adds a ton of original content and enhanced multiplayer features. We hope it’s worth the wait.”
The game will retain all of the content from the original game along with, as Kazdal mentioned, some new content as well. Said new content includes a new prologue chapter, a new character, a new unit type, new multiplayer options, a multiplayer progression system, and more.
If you put down some cash early, the developer says you’ll be able to pick up Skulls of the Shogun for the discounted price of $11.99. Additionally, you’ll receive immediate access to a “beta” version of the game, which offers the first singleplayer mission along with all 36 multiplayer missions.
An exact release date isn’t known at this point, so sit tight for more information on that. In the meantime, you can check out a gameplay trailer for the Xbox 360 version of the game below.
