If you were ever a fan of MOBAs Strife and Heroes of Newerth, you’re definitely going to want to keep an eye on S2 Games’ latest offering, Brawl of Ages. Available today in early access, the game is a “free-to-play online multiplayer collectible card game arena” title, which we might dub an OMCCGA if we were feeling cheeky.
“Brawl of Ages is a real-time multiplayer battle game that combines the quick competitiveness and on-the-fly strategy of the Collectible Card Arena (CCA) genre with the customization and personalization only possible in a PC game. With simple core gameplay that is easy to understand, Brawl of Ages branches out with endless strategic options that rewards players who take the time to focus on skill and timing, pitting opponents against each other in intense head-to-head matches with a variety of diverse and powerful cards at their disposal.”
The online CCG features three multiplayer modes (ladder, conquest, and BRAWL CLUB, without caps), one of those roulette wheel prize things that are popular in F2P games, and a “robust crafting system” to help players “craft and unlock cards for their decks.” It’s already available on Steam early access, with launch expected later this year.
