General Information

Available on:PCApr 23, 2020
In Iratus you find yourself fighting for the forces of darkness in the role of the titular necromancer—Iratus, recently freed from his millennia-long imprisonment. You control an obedient army of the living dead, with skeletons, zombies, banshees and many other unliving warriors. Create your soldiers the only way a necromancer knows how: from the body parts of your slain enemies! Expand and improve your underground lair. Strengthen your servants by researching secret rituals. Explore the twisted corridors and underground catacombs, and battle against lobotomized miners, greedy dwarves and corrupt mercenaries. Aid Iratus in his quest to recapture and eclipse his former power. Lead him to conquer the forces of good and unleash an eternal kingdom of death upon the world! The sheer variety of tactical and strategic options makes Iratus a true treat for any ardent fans of the roguelike genre. FEATURES: Play on the side of evil, embodied by the necromancer Iratus! Expand and improve your underground lair. 18 types of obedient servants: zombies, vampires, skeletons, mummies, banshees and many more! Craft minions from the body parts of your conquered enemies. Advanced combat system: to win you need to know both the strengths and weaknesses of your troops and enemies. Iratus can kill his enemies not only by magic or claw but also by draining their sanity! Each minion has six unique abilities for a total of nearly one-hundred abilities for you to command. Four talent trees that alter the way you play: Alchemy, Magic, Ire and Destruction. Roguelike elements: minions that die are gone for good and the game saves automatically, making each choice irreversible. Detailed 2D graphics and a gloomy atmosphere of dark fantasy. Various difficulty levels, satisfying every type of player from novice to hardcore. Iratus himself is voiced by the voice-acting legend Stefan Weyte, famous for his performance as Caleb in the cult game series "Blood"!

Iratus: Lord of the Dead tweaks the team tactics formula of Darkest Dungeon but cuts down on the management aspect to focus firmly on moving quickly from combat to combat. It lacks the narrative flair or emotional punch of its inspiration but makes up for it with satisfying tactical options and a balanced challenge level.

Iratus: Lord of the Dead is dark, grim and great fun. It's not perfect but it provides an interesting spin on gameplay that will keep players interested for many runs.

Audience Reviews

Iratus is Darkest Dungeon look alike but the gameplay is significantly different. It is a turn based strategy with RPG features and some narrated side stories. Iratus is Lord of the Dead that will use magic to help his minions fight humans. You can unlock stronger spells as he gains experience. You travel on a strategic map comparable to one in Slay the Spire. Choose your
