Journey to Save a Fantasy World
For The King takes place in a world of fantasy where the King has been murdered. The kingdom is thrown into mayhem by invading monsters, and the Queen calls for heroes to step in and fight off the forces of chaos. The player is given a party of three heroes, each of whom can be customised. As you progress through the randomly-generated world, you will embark on quests and explore dungeons; each time you clear a dungeon or defeat a boss enemy, you will warn Lore that can be used to improve your team of fighters.
A Journey for One Player or More
For The King has three different modes: single player, local multiplayer, and online multiplayer. Multiplayer games are co-operative in nature, allowing players to team up and explore the fantasy world for themselves. This will greatly enhance the strategy involved in playing the game, bringing a whole new dimension to the experience.
