Mysterium Coming to Digital in December
Back at Gen Con we had word that Asmodee was publishing a digital version of seance-simulator, Mysterium. At the time we wondered just how such a social title would work in a digital medium and today we learned that it will probably work very, very well.
Earlier today we received a press release letting us know that digital Mysterium would be arriving in December. Along with the release window, they also gave us some details and I have to say that I'm very much looking forward to getting this on my iPad. Let me blurb it for you:Asmodee Digital wrote:Ghost or psychic, make your choice!Mysterium is coming in December and will retail for $7 on iOS and Android and $10 on Steam.
Join the team of the brilliant clairvoyant Mr. MacDowell as a psychic for an exceptional séance! Lend a hand to the ghost haunting the walls of the Warwick Manor in his search for memories of his suspicious death. Read into the ghost’s visions to gather information on numerous leads in this atmospheric, cunning and immersive game. In Mysterium, gamers can also play as the ghost, whose communication with other psychics is limited to visions and dreams represented by beautifully illustrated cards.
An adventure to experience alone or with other players
Mysterium allows players from all over the world to investigate together in multiplayer mode and cooperate through an in-game chat that enables fellow players to point out visual clues on a card. Players can also share their visions with other psychics and approve or reject their choices with Clairvoyance Tokens. In Mysterium, up to 7 players can join together for fun, engaging games. And for those who wish to enter the manor alone, the Story Mode offers players the possibility to discover who killed the ghost, in which room and with what weapon through a several hours long investigation full of twists and turns.
Exclusive features and new adventures to come
Players well-versed in Mysterium’s secrets can rest assured that Asmodee Digital and Libellud have included exclusive features for the digital version of Mysterium! At launch, players will be able to discover the story of the first original psychic; the stories of the 5 other psychics will be released later as free updates. Still want more? With Hidden Signs, the experience will be enhanced with new mysteries and elements to discover. Available as an in-app purchase at the release of the game in December, this official expansion of Mysterium offers the player new enigmas to solve alone or with friends.
