We've pushed out a variety of changes and fixes to the Deckbound Heroes game client and the Game and Collection Manager. Full release notes are below. Highlights include explorer-based pack opening and a points cost filter in the deck builder.
If you're running the game from Steam it'll be updated automatically, if not you can download the latest version from the Launcher page of the GCM.
You can view your cards on the genesis map when you open packs
In addition to ongoing content and feature development, we're currently working on the sequencing of effects in the game, additions to the deck builder, integration of Discord chat directly in the game client and adding information about ability types.
