New Solasta: Crown of the Magister DLC Palace of Ice promises to bring your campaign to a rather spooky climax. The enchanting DnD RPG Solasta is among the best games on Steam that have the official green light from Wizards of the Coast, using the board game’s SRD 5.1 ruleset to create a faithful digital adaptation. Its recently announced DLC adds a high-level adventure through frozen lands that expands on the game’s main campaign.
“By far the biggest update we’ve worked on so far, Palace of Ice isn’t just a new adventure,” proclaims developer Tactical Adventures, “it’s the continuation and conclusion of the campaign Crown of the Magister.” This high-level 10-16 campaign sees your party head into the frozen lands to answer the Snow Alliance’s call for help against the Soraks and other ancient foes.
There are two new ancestors introduced from the DnD race list, with Gnomes and Tieflings now available in the character creator. You can import a save file to continue a past campaign with one of your pre-existing parties, or you can create a new party of adventurers to treat this as one shot and start at level 10, ready for the Ice Palace . . During your adventure, you will face powerful opponents and level up to a maximum of 16.
Solasta: Palace of Ice can be played solo or with up to four players in cooperative mode. Plenty of new Dungeon Maker content is included, with four new environments and a variety of Ice Palace monsters at your disposal. You’ll also get two free additions to Dungeon Maker: the ability to use and link world maps, and controllable follower NPCs who can join the party and help in battle.
All players will also have access to six new faces for Humans, Elves, Dwarves, Halflings and Half-Elves in the Character Creator whether or not they purchase the DLC, and levels up to 16 will be now unlocked in Dungeon Maker. . However, to maintain some balance, the Crown of the Magister and Lost Valley campaigns still have a maximum cap of 12.
Solasta: Palace of Ice will be released in May 2023 on Steam, GOG and the Microsoft Store. If you haven’t played the base game yet, which is also available on PC Game Pass, read why we think it could be the perfect DnD RPG after the release of its Lost Valley DLC.
