Ironoak Games’ strategic RPG For The King is making the jump to consoles next month. Here’s a look at the game, and when you can play it on a console.

Curve Digital has announced that it is bringing the strategic RPG For The King over to consoles. Which consoles, you ask? Why, all of them! All the relevant ones, anyway (sorry, PS Vita owners).

For The King will launch on 7th May on PS4, 9th May on Switch, and 10th May on Xbox One. The game will have a 20 percent launch discount across all three console platforms.

The game is already available on PC, Mac, and Linux via Steam, where it originally released in April last year.

Here’s a look at the new trailer for the game:

Here’s how the developer describes the game and its story:

For The King is a challenging blend of Strategy, JRPG Combat, and Roguelike elements. Each play through is made unique with procedural maps, quests, and events. Brave the relentless elements, fight the wicked creatures, sail the seas and delve into the dark underworld. None before you have returned from their journey. Will you be the one to put an end to the Chaos?

Fight and die as a party in fast paced and brutal turn-based combat using a unique slot system for attacks and special abilities. Find and gather herbs for your trusty pipe to heal your wounds and cure your maladies. Set up safe camps or brave the horrors that nightfall brings.

For The King has been developed by Canadian studio Ironoak Games, and it is published by Curve Digital.
