Problems with Clockwork Expansion on Root Digital (Steam) I recently bought the Clockwork expansion on Steam, and I've been having problems to use it, other than the tutorial I'm unable to use the clockwork factions in solo or multiplayer matches, and the in-game store doesn't work as. Root: The Clockwork Expansion As Kickstarter for roleplaying game goes live Root’s next expansion will introduce a proper single-player mode and full support for co-operative play to the asymmetrical (and surprisingly savage) board game.

Root - The Clockwork Expansion

Introduces Co-op Play! Team up to take on powerful automated opponents!

Mechanical Marquise 2.0

This is the simplest of the bots and can be used to fill out the player count in dozens of configurations. Though this bot is straightforward, don’t get complacent. At least one player will need to keep it in check!

Electrical Eyrie

The Electric Eyrie will inspire fear in the most stalwart of players. Like the Eyrie Dynasties, this bot can ramp up its action potential aggressively.

Automated Alliance

The Automated Alliance is especially zealous and will revolt frequently. Keep in mind their potential targets so you avoid any unpleasant surprises. Once they do establish a foothold, timing is critical. Don’t let them consolidate their warriors or you’ll be in trouble!


The Vagabot makes for a capricious friend or foe. Like a human player, he will reward those who craft items. But be careful, he can make for a dangerous enemy once he gets enough items to boost his maximum hits.

The Clockwork Expansion will be available in game for $5.99 on all platforms.

Get ready to fend off the mechanical menace when the Clockwork Expansion comes to Root!
