Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce that a new adventure is now available for purchase through the Road to Legend app! Trials of Frostgate challenges you and your fellow heroes to four distinct trials, and each trial is guaranteed to test your strength and your resolve in a different way. Unlike a campaign, which progresses through a story with every new adventure, each challenge in Trials of Frostgate can be attempted multiple times as you attempt to best your scores from previous encounters!
In the city of Frostgate, the Northern Tribes gather each winter for feasting, celebration, and their most sacred rituals. Amongst these rituals, the Trials of Frostgate stand proudest—tests of courage, skill, and strength of arms, where the proudest and bravest warriors earn tattoos of their totemic animals. Four trials await you—and only the boldest heroes can withstand them all.
As part of the Road to Legend companion app, Trials of Frostgate invites you to experience the danger, excitement, and heroism of Descent: Journeys in the Dark as a completely cooperative experience. The companion app takes over command of the monsters that you battle, leaving you and each of your friends free to become the heroes of Terrinoth.

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce a new addition to the Road to Legend app for Descent: Journeys in the Dark—The Delve!
Your adventures have taken you across the realm of Terrinoth in two distinct campaigns. First, you opposed the bumbling schemes of Splig in The End of All Goblins mini-campaign. Then, you fought the explosive depredations of Merick Farrow through the wild places of Terrinoth in the full-length Kindred Fire campaign. You’ll soon be able to face your greatest challenge yet, however—a randomized delve mode is coming to Road to Legend.
Unlike the two campaigns that have been previously released for Road to Legend, The Delve challenges you in an entirely new way. Over the course of a single session, you and your fellow heroes will advance through an ever-changing pocket dimension, carrying out the goals given to you by the Caretaker—the ruler of this strange domain. If you can accomplish your objectives, the Caretaker will reward you with experience, loot, and your eventual freedom. But if you fail, the terrifying dark creatures trapped in this world will tear you to pieces.

The Road to Legend companion app for Descent: Journeys in the Dark has given you the chance to experience Descentas a fully cooperative game, battling against monsters and sinister events controlled by the app as you play through the epic story of a campaign. With the Rise of All Goblins mini-campaign, the full-length Kindred Fire campaign, and side quests corresponding to each of the game’s major expansions, you’ve already had dozens of adventures that span the entire realm of Terrinoth.
Now, you’ll gain access to nine entirely new side quests that can change the shape of your campaigns in Road to Legend forever!
With the most recent update to the Road to Legend app, nine new side quests have been added to the game—one corresponding to each of the Descent Hero and Monster Collections.

The corruption of the Everdark has arrived in Terrinoth, turning even the greatest and noblest heroes against each other. This foul onslaught must be turned back and defeated, for the good of the entire realm. Now, you can fight these battles as a hero yourself or command the power of the Everdark with the Shards of Everdark Hero and Monster Collection, now available from Fantasy Flight Games.
Like the other Hero and Monster Collections previously released for Descent: Journeys in the Dark, Shards of Everdark reintroduces monsters and heroes from the game’s first edition, complete with entirely new artwork and figure sculpts.

Your journey thus far has taken you deep into the Mistlands and the domain of Waiqar the Undying. In this land of shifting mists, uncertain footing, and terrifying undead, you are certain of little. The heroes that you’ve fought alongside for years seem suddenly alien and unknowable. Spirits loom up out of the fog and vanish moments before they touch you. Even the air you breathe seems to be worming its way inside you, tainting your blood and binding you to the Mistlands with indelible bonds. More and more, you are sure of only one thing: you must find a way to escape.
The heroes’ adventures through the Mistlands continue with The Chains That Rust, a new Descent expansion that pits your might against ever more deadly dangers. Within this expansion, you’ll discover an entirely new one-act campaign that can be played on its own or as a sequel to the campaign included in Mists of Bilehall. New Tainted cards and a new Overlord class give the overlord player new tools, even as eight plastic figures swell his armies with new monsters. Finally, you can stretch beyond your hero’s traditional Class decks for the first time with the addition of hybrid classes!

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce Shards of Everdark, an exciting new Hero and Monster Collection for Descent: Journeys in the Dark!
Shards from the realm of Everdark are piercing the hearts of even the best men, turning allies into enemies with astonishing speed. The darkness within is overtaking the unsuspecting villagers, and only you can save them from their ominous fate. As you scramble to rescue the locals, you’ll face horrors imbued with the strength and power of Everdark, but you must beware! Nobody is safe from the icy chill of all-consuming darkness, not even the heroes who seek to stop it.
Shards of Everdark includes thirteen detailed plastic figures—four heroes, two ice wyrms, five shades, and two dark minotaurs. These heroes, like those of previous expansions, hail from the first edition of Descent, along with two familiar monsters and one brand-new beast: the dark minotaurs. Bring Arvel Worldwalker, One Fist, Karnon, or Steelhorns into your team to embark on new adventures. You’ll also prepare for battle in two new quests, which challenge you to stop the spread of the corrupting shards and destroy the armies of Everdark once and for all.
