Dungeon Party Loads up on New Features

Cyanide and Focus Home Interactive are pleased to announce that Dungeon Party, the free and frantic team-based game, has been loaded up with a host of new and exciting features.

Three new characters join the 4 (anti)heroes already in place, along with more than 10 new dungeons (over 20 total). A new environment, a new game mode and many new game variations, and last but not least the long-awaited Dungeon Editor are also coming into the game!

The novelties are already available and the game will automatically update itself. For newcomers, a fresh installer is available to install the latest version, which of course includes all the latest updates.

Three new crazy characters join the wild foursome:

The Engineer, riding around on his giant robot, loves gadgets: grenades, health terminals, more grenades, radars and big guns… in short, everything to lay waste to the opposing team!

The Horsewoman, riding… something that looks like a horse, but isn’t quite, is here to kick major butt! Dealing damage via Sword slashes, a tomato launcher, or kicks from her imaginary horse, the rider ensures every hit is a good one!

Last, the Amazon is a true, slightly dominant fury that will impose her will once inside a dungeon! With her Teleportation skills and crowd-control spell, she's a real pain for opponents!

In addition to these new classes, a new environment makes its appearance in the insane world of Dungeon Party -- Las Vegas! With a party of 11– sorry, 10 actually– clean out the casinos' safes to fill up your empty pockets! A dozen new maps, based on this new universe as well as the three original maps (the Pirate Caves, the Egyptian Pyramid and Dracula's Castle) expand the selection of dungeons! A total of more than 20 official maps are now available for your loot-grabbing pleasure.

In case that selection of new additions is not enough for you…we are extremely pleased to introduce the Dungeon Editor! This editor allows players to create from A to Z the craziest dungeons straight out of their wildest dreams! Let your creativity speak, and share your most terrific creations with the community.

Finally, a new game mode and many new variations come to life to diversify the fun and the game experience, while exploring the many new dungeons, in search of treasure, a lot of treasure!
