Hong Kong – 19 October. Death or Glory, a card game that harnesses Anime power and pulls mechanics from fighting games, including move timing and the counter system to deliver a devastating knockout package is available now in Steam Early Access. Watch the launch trailer below.
Death or Glory offers a unique turn-based system, where almost every attack can be reacted to, whether dodged or blocked. Each card uses a speed system, much like the frames of a fighting game, so a heavy attack will still hit over a small block. Managing your resources, including stamina, champion power, and cards in hand, is vital in dominating the arena.
Choose a fighter, venture through the fantasy realms, and build the perfect deck in the roguelike adventure mode, which plays like a traditional roguelike deckbuilder (Slay the Spire, Wildfrost). With multiple maps on offer, all of which evolve and change as you defeat new challengers.
The champions of Death or Glory make up five different classes, all with a unique play style and resource system, no mana. Piloting a mech requires managing the system's temperature to play devastating combos. Fighting as a feral werewolf means harnessing rage to slash away at your opponent's health.
You can also face off against other champions and climb the ranks of glory in tense dueling battles. These arena battles sit closer to an original CCG style (Hearthstone, Legends of Runetera). Regardless of what mode players choose to champion, the experience will consistently be earned and unlock content for both PvE and PvP.
Death or Glory is available now via Steam Early Access as a free-to-play title. In-game purchases are available to unlock additional champions and different cosmetics. All game modes are and will always remain free to play.
