We’re rolling out features to the beta as we go, this is a summary of what’s available in Week 1 — features released publicly October 2nd.
In the beta you can currently:
Play with the new beta client on Windows and Mac
Build a deck from a collection of demo Deckbound Hero cards
Play matched casual games on the default/demo map
This release is designed for people who’ve already played a previous version of the game — but don’t worry if you haven’t, it’s pretty easy to pick up. Check out these gameplay and deck building videos from PAX West.
To login and play you’ll need a beta account (get one at deckbound.com/beta if you haven’t already). Login at gcm.deckbound.com and go to the Launcher page. From there you can download the game client, build a deck and request games. We’ve also included links to other resources, such as this blog.
Soon you’ll be able to:
Play with the turn timer feature (please bear with us on this — at the moment you’ll have to be patient with other players… we’re looking to enable this during this week)
Play single player tutorial games
Beyond that we’re currently working on:
Introduction of new card types (the first of which will be Deckbound Structure cards)
Deity templates (build a deck with a specific set of conditions and bonuses)
Improved deck building
Match play and card swapping (between games in a match)
First turn advantage (this is related to deity and card swap features — we’ll be announcing more soon)
So, get up and running, try out the new client and we’ll be back soon with another update.
Check out the new client!
You can request casual games and modify decks from the launcher.
