Gloomhaven défie les mercenaires fin septembre

En bref. Le premier DLC pour la version PC de Gloomhaven était arrivé mi-mai. Il proposait quatre redoutables mercenaires supplémentaires, de nouveaux ennemis, une variation du scénario et quelques autres ajouts divers pour offrir un solide contenu en plus. Voyez le communiqué ci-après pour quelques précisions.

Asmodée a confirmé qu’une seconde extension allait bel et bien suivre, cela vers la fin de septembre si tout se passe comme prévu. Il s’agira ici d’un add-on corsant la difficulté, ce via 17 scénarios dits “brutaux”, de nouveaux objets et divers ennemis et défis uniques.

Enfin au passage sachez que le jeu arrivera sur consoles en 2023.

Black Barrow. Haunting my dreams, shadowing my days.
Deep within, I fear what lies below – what we faced. Yet, here I am again, alone.
I’m the Brute, I kill what people fear.
I’ll kill my fear too.


Lo and behold, mercenaries!
Here is a quick summary of what you can expect from this DLC:
A considerably harder experience than the base game.
You’ll definitely have to git gud this time.

17 new delightfully brutal scenarios, each tailored to a specific base game Mercenary.
17 new items, usable only by one specific Mercenary.
Items & scenarios reworked and rebalanced by Isaac Childres himself to better fit the digital version.
New unique enemies and challenges.

You can already wishlist the Solo Scenarios: Mercenary Challenges DLC today on Steam, right below!!

To be able to spectate or play the Solo Scenarios: Mercenary Challenges content in multiplayer co-op, every player has to own the DLC.


You can only gain access to the DLC missions at Level 5 in the Story Campaign.
When a mercenary reaches Level 5, they are able to undertake their own Solo mission.
Alternatively, you can gain access to the DLC unique rewards in the Guildmaster Mode when completing the 2nd Story mission for each mercenary.
You only gain access to the items if you complete the missions, these items cannot be sold or bought by other characters.
The mercenary has to attempt the missions on their own and if they are successful, they are awarded their specific Solo item. This item cannot be sold or bought by other characters, and any later mercenaries of the same class must also complete this mission to unlock it.
You can play these missions online in a Multiplayer game, but your co-op companions will be in spectator mode, watching you hopelessly try to survive.
You can also play these missions offline. Then, to import the fruit of your hard labor to any game, it will be automatic if you’re the host, and if you are not the host and join a game, the host has the option to import any Gold, XP and Item you gained in the Solo Scenarios.

Note – DLC enabled save games cannot be reverted to non-DLC games.


You and your group are sitting down for some cold brew in the Sleeping Lion after a hard day’s mercenary work. Protecting that merchant was too troublesome… Suddenly a peculiar Orchid covered in an innumerable amount of crystals approaches and sits down at the table.

Looking from under her shadowed hood, she begins speaking.
“So you’re the the mercenary group I’ve heard about?”
She looks around the table.
“Not that it says much coming from the people I heard it from. But I’d like to know what kind of feats you can muster.”
She eyes each of you intently, measuring your value to her.
“Prove your true worth.” She snaps “Accept the challenge that is coming and uncover all that lies beneath the veil…”

A chill runs down your spine at her final words, but before you can consider responding to the ludicrous comments of this crazed Orchid, she disappears in an instant. Your group stares quietly at one another, wondering what kind of wild and harrowing adventure awaits you all…


Adventurers, will you please gather round on this glorious day? Greetings!

A sinister cabal started abducting the less fortunate of the city… and it somehow falls to you to get to the bottom of it. Thankfully, in Gloomhaven, salvation has a price…

Jaws of the Lion is finally out! Here is what you will find in this brand new DLC:

4 news mercenaries: the stalwart Red Guard, the fearsome Hatchet, the explosive Demolitionist and the mysterious Voidwarden are waiting for you
25 new scenarios giving you access to more than 30 hours of exclusive content
10 new monster types and bosses
22 new city events that will put your moral compass to the test
10 items that will provide new ways to defeat your foes
24 Battle Goals to let down your group over whole new reasons

Don’t have Gloomhaven yet?

Get it right now for 25% off (offer available until May 23), and enjoy the entire board game campaign as well as the guildmaster one, exclusive to the digital verson of Gloomhaven!
Enjoy 17 unique characters, each coming with their own skills, ttousands of abilities, perks, items and enhancements and dark and challenging environments filled with dangerous enemies of all sorts.


After surviving an encounter with the void as a child, they are now able to harness its mysterious magic to protect others from a similar fate. Minds are open books for the Voidwarden, and they manipulate the thoughts and actions of both allies and foes… but always at a heavy price.

Always ready to destroy any obstacle that stands in their way, the Quatryl Demolitionist is a force to be reckoned with. They can augment their body with very powerful and quite unstable contraptions to devastate enemies on the battlefield. You might want to move aside.

The Inox Hatchet is a sinister marksman. He has a strong inclination for axe-throwing, and knows how to hold a grudge. Oh! And his enemies are just as good as dead. They simply might not know it yet.

With their distinctive red armor, shield and chained sickle, the Valrath Red Guard manipulates the battlefield. They are able to both protect their allies and keep their enemies at bay, handling multiple opponents at once. None shall escape the Red Guard’s grasp…


Is the DLC a standalone campaign?

No, you are able to integrate the content of the DLC (4 mercenaries, 10 items and 25 new scenarios) with a simple click of a button into an existing Story campaign without having to start over. Alternatively, all new Story campaigns will have all new mercenaries and scenarios available from the start, while the Guildmaster campaigns will only include the new mecenaries and items.
DLC-enabled save games cannot be reverted to non-DLC games.
If you play in the Guildmaster mode, once converting the save or starting a new game the 4 mercenaries will be immediately available and the items will be added to various treasure tables.

Why is JOTL not a standalone like the board game?

Having Jaws of the Lion as a DLC allowed us to mix and match the content of Gloomhaven and Jaws of the Lion. We needed to change some things in Jaws of the Lion for that to happen smoothly. It also allowed us to mix some of the content of the DLC with the Guildmaster mode!

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

How long is the DLC?

You can expect about 30+ hours of entirely new content.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

How many players can play together online?

You will be able to play online up to 4 players, the same as the base game. Once a saved game is converted to be DLC compatible, all players will require the DLC to be able to join.
When starting a new campaign you will have the option to activate Jaws of the Lion or play with the base game only.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Can we expect further updates / DLCs after that?

Although we cannot share anything at this point, we will keep supporting the game after the release of Jaws of the Lion.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

How many languages are supported on Jaws of the Lion?

All the languages of the base game will be supported.
These languages are English, French, German and Spanish.

On which platforms is Jaws of the Lion released?

The DLC will be available on Steam and GoG for Windows & MacOS.

What about bugs?

Gloomhaven is a colossal game and Jaws of the Lion is adding thousands of mercenary combinations, possible abilities, items, perks, enhancements and enemies.
