Phageborn Beta is Free On Steam, Early Access Release Will Come With a $14.99 Pricetag

If you are a lover of card games, Phageborn is looking to be a unique take on the online phenomenon that seems to take a much darker tone. This would be the perfect time to test Phageborn out for free, as once the early access comes around, you’ll need to pay an entry fee of $14.99. It seems to be playing around with a dual-lane system that also allows you to play with a friend in 2v2 mode. It also focuses heavily on the lore and deep world-building, great for players that want some story to go along with their card game

Check out the game information below:

In the beginning of time, “The Alpha Creator,” a godlike entity was born to create and shape matter, to build the universe. Existing in a dimension where none can enter or leave, The Alpha Creator cloned himself, splitting his powers amongst them, to fulfill his vision. But even the Alpha Creator made mistakes, as did his clones, which could not be fixed. The solution was “The Phage”, otherwise known as the god of the apocalypse, a being that could erase realms, lives, and even entire planets – in the blink of an eye.

Unlike other clones, The Phage was the perfect clone of the Alpha Creator. The other clones soon decided that their idea of a perfect universe differed from that of the Phage and the Alpha Creator and so, with much effort, destroyed the Phage. However, being a god of existence, an immortal and timeless primordial entity, the essence of the Phage survived and continued to wander the universe in order to find a host in which he could reincarnate. This process was dangerous and few survived, with those successful being known as “The Phageborn.”

The story of Phageborn features many different and dark fantasy worlds, but the events in the Phageborn digital card game occur in Issilith, a realm destroyed by an unknown evil force. Players don the role of a team of robust champions as they prove their deck-building and decision-making skills in dynamic duels within the dark and unforgiving battlefields of Issilith. With a dual resource system, twin lane battlegrounds, 2v2 multiplayer and a host of mighty avatars to choose from, Phageborn dives into deep strategic card play with gorgeous visuals and intriguing lore.
