Round Up Your Meeples and Conquer a Medieval Landscape – Asmodee Digital Releases Award-Winning Tile Game for PC, Mac, and Android
Paris – Nov. 29, 2017 – Asmodee Digital, leaders in digital board game entertainment, today announced the Steam launch of Carcassonne, the digital version of the award-winning tile-laying board game, for PC and Mac, along with an all-new version of the game for Android mobile devices.
Carcassonne presents an all-new, 3D version of the classic game. Two to six players take on the roles of founders of the region as they build roads, abbeys, and cities in online asynchronous multiplayer gameplay.
Simple to pick up but challenging to master, the new Carcassonne presents players with endless opportunities for tactical play. Within minutes, players will find themselves in tough situations – determining where to put their last meeple, whether to use tiles to expand the city, or to hinder their opponent. Players place only one tile each round, and have the option to place one meeple on it. Each game develops differently, full of boundless possibilities, and the quick-fire nature of the game ensures that Carcassonne always runs at a brisk pace.
Launching today on Steam for PC and Mac, Carcassonne is available at the discounted price of $9.99 for a limited time and comes complete with two popular expansions – The River and The Abbot – to further enhance in-game options.
In addition, Asmodee Digital’s new Android version of Carcassonne has been released with exciting new features, including beautiful new artwork, 2D and 3D perspective, pass-and-play mode, updated AI (three different AI behaviors thoroughly tested by Hans im Glück: Easy Neighbor, Fierce Egoist, and Risk-Taker) and asynchronous online play (cross-platform compatible with Android and Steam), including ranked games and leaderboards. It will be available at the discounted price of $1.99 for the first 30 days after launch and comes with the The Abbot expansion.
The game will continue to be developed with already many projects underway:
Additional expansions coming after launch include Inns & Cathedrals, Traders & Builders, and Princesses & Dragons.
For all the Carcassonne pros, a Champion AI will be released for free within the next few months.
