Features & Bug Fixes

  • 2 v 2 Game Mode is Here!

  • 15 New story missions with cinematic cutscenes and improved rewards.

  • Game Mode Revisions:

    • To play vs human or AI opponents, just hit Play, then choose casual or ranked.

    • If no human opponent is available, you'll be given an AI opponent in 15 seconds.

  • Login and Register accounts with Google and Facebook

  • New Paths and Powers

    • Powers are active abilities that require mana and can be used a maximum of once per turn.

    • Paths are passive abilities that provide unique benefits over the course of the game.

  • UI Improvements and new player profile panel

  • Fixed a bug where unzooming a minion or enchantment that was in play when the zoom was first initiated but subsequently was bounced to the player’s hand would result in the card being invisible in hand.

  • Account for window borders when changing resolution to the maximum screen size (Windows only).

  • Restructured Incubation Chamber such that removing the enchantment or forcing a minion out of it can now end gestation before the buff kicks in.

  • Fixed an issue that was causing a Hopeless Necromantic dying with The Yana Virus to infect the resurrected minion.

  • Fixed a bug where resuming a suspended game caused it to not count toward mission/achievement progress.

Known Issues

  • Nazca Memorial and Singing Stone stacks beyond the first aren’t being taken into account when moving into enchantments (as opposed to being created inside).

  • Fragile 1 from Turn of Seasons Winter isn’t being applied to newly created minions.

  • Some combat sound effects will still play even if audio is muted.
