As you begin your journey into the dungeon, corpses lining the floor begin to writhe to life. Behind you, near the sealed entrance, monstrous beasts appear from the shadows. You must stand or fall together!
Forgotten Souls is a new cooperative adventure, allowing up to four heroes to play a fully cooperative variant of Descent: Journeys in the Dark. In a normal game of Descent, one player takes on the role of Overlord, commanding monsters and the forces of evil in the game. Up to four players combat the power of the Overlord by playing heroes who gain experience and new items over the course of a campaign.
Forgotten Souls changes the normal structure of Descent by emulating a mini-campaign in a completely cooperative atmosphere. Although this expansion does not replace the normal game of Descent, it offers a variant for you and your friends to explore an expanding dungeon, passing tests and battling fierce monsters. In Forgotten Souls, encounters and monsters are controlled by decks of cards, rather than the Overlord. You’ll also grab loot and experience as you face down a series of encounters, culminating in a battle in the heart of the dragon’s lair. Enter the darkness within Forgotten Souls!
