Headup Games today announced a new release date for their upcoming roguelike RPG adventure Vambrace: Cold Soul, which will now release May 28th on PC, Mac & Linux. In Vambrace players are tasked with exploring the cursed city of Icenaire. Assembling teams and outfitting them for dangerous expeditions is a core aspect of the gameplay.
The game was recently showcased at GDC and PAX East. Its unique blend of narrative-driven gameplay and punishing dungeon crawling missions garnered critical praise and heightened fan anticipation at the events.

The teams are also proud of the impressions the game has made so far and is excited to share the adventures of Evelia Lyric and her companions through the icy, gothic-fantasy realm of Icenaire. Stay tuned for more information about Vambrace: Cold Soul!
