We’re just a few days away from the release of The Elder Scrolls: Legends – Alliance War, the upcoming expansion to the successful Elder Scrolls card game based on the endless war of the alliances as seen in Elder Scrolls Online. Bethesda has reached out to us with an exclusive opportunity to reveal a card from the Alliance War expansion pack. Alliance War is going to have more than 100 new cards when it releases on April 15th. It is available on PC, iOS, and Android.
So, without any further delay here is a short message from Community Manager for The Elder Scrolls: Legends Christian Van Hoose to explain the Daedric Titan card.
Daedric Titan is a powerful five-cost creature that can hold its own against both Aggro decks and Control decks. Usually, a four-health creature for five magicka would be a bit problematic, as commonly-played removal actions like Lightning Bolt would be able to easily dispatch of it – not the case with Daedric Titan! As long as you have another creature in each lane, the Titan can’t be targeted by your opponent’s actions, so your opponent is going to have to deal with it the hard way: with their creatures. If you can keep it protected, they’ll have to clear out your other creatures before being able to target it. Additionally, the Drain keyword will allow you to gain valuable health against aggressive decks, so even your Aggro opponents will have to find a way to deal with the Titan.
We would like to thank Christian Van Hoose and everyone working on The Elder Scrolls: Legends for giving us the opportunity to reveal this badass looking card. If you haven’t played The Elder Scrolls: Legends yet what are you waiting for? The base game is entirely free to play. If you preorder Alliance War ($49.99) you will receive 50 card packs, an Alliance War Legendary card, plus the exclusive Warmonger title and premium card back which will be available once the expansion goes live.
We’ve teamed up with Dire Wolf Digital to reveal 4 of all new Eternal: Defiance cards from their exciting CCG’s newest expansion which drops this week. Below are just 4 of the 278 new cards that are being introduced to the game. Plus, after the cards there’s more on the new Pledge system which is also being introduced in the expansion.
As you can see, most notably on Syl there is the new mechanic called Pledge. Quite simply Pledge cards can be played as a sigil during a player’s first turn. This gives them unique flexibility based on the amount of power vs non-power cards in-hand. If you’re interested in learning even more about how this new system works Dire Wolf has made a blog post about it and given real, in-game examples of how it will work.
Eternal has had a very busy month so far. They’ve already launched on Steam and Xbox One. They also launched their esports program with a $5,000 cash tournament that will ultimately lead to a $100,000 World Championship.
If you haven’t already checked out Eternal you can do so on Steam, iOS, Android, and Xbox One. It is a free to play turn based strategy card game that boasts unlimited choices and infinite possibilities.
It’s already rough enough waking up in a place where you’re trying to survive against possibly hostile dinosaurs and humans, but what if that location is also bombarded with radiation and host to mutant creatures? This is the world of the ARK: Aberration expansion, and that world’s arrival has been officially dated.
As the name suggests, the Aberration expansion will feature all sorts of unnatural critters from the friendly to the ferocious, including the light-granting Lantern Pug; the tameable Rock Drake that climbs walls, glides through the air, and even camouflages itself; and the Reaper Queen which – if you manage to tame one – can infect foes with a chest-bursting critter.
On top of the many creatures that roam this new waste, players will also have to contend with environmental hazards like radiation exposure, earthquakes, and gas leaks among others. Luckily, there’s also over 50 new items to craft to help traverse the Ark, including gliding wingsuits, HAZMAT suits, railguns, batteries and more. You’ll need these tools to explore Aberration’s landscape, which features vast underground biomes to explore.
ARK: Aberration will be available on Tuesday, December 12th on all platforms. The expansion is priced at $19.99 as a stand-alone purchase or included for free if you’ve bought the Explorer’s Edition or are a Season Pass owner. There are also a number of Black Friday sales for the base game and its other expansions if one is so interested.
A trailer for ARK: Aberration can be seen below.
Lantern Pug is probably the best illustration of just how unique and how remarkable ARK: Aberration appears to be. This is a map type that really pushes the bar for ARK in creativity and we hope that it also is just as fun to play as it is to watch in action.
