Team17 and Heliocentric Studios have launched a free demo of the upcoming adventure roguelite, Rogue Heroes: Ruins of Tasos, on Nintendo Switch ahead of a launch on the console and PC on 23rd February. Set in the world of Tasos, which is under threat from the menace of conquering Titans, the demo introduces players to the mystical overworld and the first of the game’s puzzle-filled, procedurally-generated dungeons. Adventurers can play the demo solo or with up to three other heroes in local co-op multiplayer, with the full game taking the journey online for four players too.
Pre-orders start on Nintendo Switch for Rogue Heroes: Ruins of Tasos, bringing an additional strategic option with the Bomber class, alongside exclusive weapon skins as well as furniture that players can use to accessorize their in-game home.
- Four-player co-op adventuring: Up to four players can explore the lands of Tasos and tackle the dungeons, assisting and reviving each other to earn victory together
- Roguelite dungeon-crawling: Take on procedurally-generated dungeons packed with a variety of monsters, earning gems to spend on upgrades to get further in the next run
- Town and class upgrades: Each run in the dungeon earns gems to spend on upgrades, including the facilities in the town, as well as player abilities and stats
- Classic gameplay reinvented: This is top-down adventuring brought into the modern day with colourful visuals and a number of options for combat, puzzle-solving, and exploration.
Each of the nine classes in Rogue Heroes: Ruins of Tasos have a unique active and passive ability!
The Mage here excels at spellcasting and can even blink through traps and obstacles.

Beyond the challenge of the dungeons, Rogue Heroes: Ruins of Tasos features the titular overworld of Tasos, which is filled with its own many secrets, as well as the village of Intori. The settlement can be rebuilt, expanded, and developed throughout the course of the game, which will help the player in their quest, like a Blacksmith that improves the sword, a Clinic that bolsters health, and much more. Heroes can also prepare for the challenges that lay ahead by unlocking and honing new abilities through the game’s skill tree and its variety of character customisation options.
