ASMODEE DIGITAL LAUNCHES INVADERS FROM AFAR DLC, THE FIRST EXPANSION FOR ITS HIGHLY-PRAISED STRATEGY GAME SCYTHE: DIGITAL EDITION ON PC

New Challenges, Factions and More Added to the Digital Edition of the Popular Board Game

PARIS – May 29, 2019 – Asmodee Digital, a leader in digital board game entertainment, today launched Invaders From Afar, the first expansion for its popular strategy game, Scythe: Digital Edition. Featuring a treasure trove of new content, Invaders From Afar includes challenges, factions and player mats, adding a whole new layer of strategy to the PC title based on the hugely popular 2016 board game.

Along the rise and fall of empires in Eastern Europa, Invaders From Afar introduces players to two distinct new factions, Clan Albion and Togawa Shogunate, who have deployed their emissaries to scout the land and plan their best strategy for conquest. Both formidable factions possess unique mechs and abilities, bringing fresh challenges, and an entirely updated way for new and seasoned players to experience Scythe: Digital Edition. While Clan Albion craves control of new territories, the Togawa Shogunate are determined to slow their enemy’s progress by placing traps behind them.

In addition to the two new factions, Invaders From Afar deepens the competition by allowing 2 additional players to join the Scythe: Digital Edition universe, for a total of up to 7 players. The expansion also adds two new player mats – Militant and Innovative – offering players new strategies to master, further determining what they can bolster, upgrade, produce, deploy, move, build, trade and enlist.

Scythe: Digital Edition transports players to an alternate reality set in Eastern Europa in the 1920s, following the first World War. During this time of unrest, the capitalistic city-state known as “The Factory,” which fueled the war with heavy armory, has closed its doors, drawing attention from nearby countries. Representing falling leaders, players are tasked with restoring honor and leading their faction to power in Europa. A fan-favorite, Scythe: Digital Edition was nominated as a runner-up by Golden Geek Awards in the “2018 Best Board Game App” category.

The Invaders From Afar DLC is available for purchase on Steam for PC for $9.99. To download Scythe: Digital Edition and the DLC, visit:

KENSINGTON, MD. – Jan. 8, 2019 –Evolution, the strategy game of adaptation from North Star Digital Studios will flourish on PC, Mac, iOS and Android on Feb 12, 2019.

Inspired by the award-winning tabletop gameEvolution retains the elements which made the analog edition so popular with more than 1.6 million players worldwide, but offers a swift pace and features only possible in a modern video game. Meticulously designed so even those who are completely unfamiliar with the original board game can jump in right away, the digital release features a learn-while-you-play tutorial, exciting campaign mode with “Apex Species” to test your wits against, and cross-platform multiplayer that effortlessly matches players with others of similar skill. 

Create new species and adapt them for survival in an ever-changing environment, brought to life with a beautifully hand-painted, watercolor art-style and an earthy, contemplative original soundtrack. Combine different traits rooted in science, such as a long neck or a defensive shell, in limitless combinations to help creatures thrive in the fight for survival over scarce food resources and defense from deadly predators. Develop symbiotic relationships or even evolve carnivorous traits and feast on foes in this addictive turn-based strategy game.


Evolution brings stunning new artwork, animated cards, lush environments, distinct enemy A.I., and more than 24,000 possible species to the virtual table. The campaign presents varied scenarios and smart “Apex Species” requiring careful planning and strategy to survive.

Take the fight for survival online and square off against live opponents around the world in fully cross platform, skill-based matchmaking. Rank up from a field researcher all the way to a Nobel Laureate in the progression system. Test yourself against others in the ongoing seasonal tournaments. Turn-based and simultaneous play options allow for fast and fluid multiplayer games in under ten minutes. 

“The original Evolution tabletop game has developed a fanatical following among players since its release in 2014,” said Scott Rencher, president and co-founder of North Star Digital Studios. “With the Evolution video game, we’ve gone all out to make this not just a great board game adaptation, but a fantastic strategy video game in its own right.”

The game will also be released as free-to-try on iOS and Android with a full version available for $9.99 on the same day.
