CHRONICLE: RUNESCAPE LEGENDS IS A WHOLE NEW ADVENTURE FOR STRATEGY CARD GAMES AND LAUNCHES TODAY ON STEAM FOR PC
Fight your own cards in a new chapter for online strategy card games as Chronicle arrives on Steam for PC
Thursday 26th May 2016, Cambridge, UK – Chronicle: RuneScape Legends, a new generation of action-packed online strategy card game, has launched today and is now available from Steam for PC (http://store.steampowered.com/app/205890/), Jagex Games Studio has announced.
A unique twist on the card game genre, which combines tactical PvE with strategic PvP gameplay, Chronicle sees players fighting against their own cards as well as their opponents, and crafting adventures in a quest for supremacy over their rival.
Having spent the last six months in beta, Chronicle’s full launch on Steam brings with it new ranked sessions (the first of which is now live until 31st June) more than 400 cards, support for seven languages1-, over 40 Steam Achievements, Steam Trading Cards, and dozens of additional enhancements and improvements for the game’s full launch.
Additionally, current players can continue to enjoy their Chronicle adventure directly through the game’s client. Crucially, there is no progress wipe for players who have been enjoying the game during the open beta period.
CHRONICLE: RUNESCAPE LEGENDS features at Steam launch:
Unique new generation card game – The cards are both a player’s greatest weapon and weakness, as they battle their own decks and trying to defeat their rival standing the other side of the Chronicle
Master five Legends – Learn the unique tactics and strategies of each Legend and strive for victory. A sixth Legend, the slayer master Morvran, will join existing characters during this summer
Multiple modes – Draft to victory in Dungeoneering mode and quest for coins, gem shards and platinum; learn the ropes in Solo Play and Casual modes; play against friends; or fight to the top in the competitive Ranked mode
Skilling & Customisation – Players can customise their account by unlocking new titles and badges through levelling up in-game skills, or purchase new card backs
Said James Sweatman, lead designer, Chronicle: RuneScape Legends:
“From prototyping Chronicle as a paper-based card game two years ago, through to iterating its digital form, today’s launch of Chronicle: RuneScape Legends on Steam for PC marks the biggest milestone for the game to date. Chronicle delivers a step-change in traditional CCG gameplay, where almost every predictable card game mechanic has been thrown out the window in favour of our unique twist on the genre and we are eager to see players develop and master new tactics and strategies for supremacy.”
“The open beta proved to be supremely useful, with players providing invaluable feedback and insight as to how we could make Chronicle the best it could possibly be for launch. We’re looking forward to watching the race to the top of the ranked leagues unfold, as well as continue our development plans to bring the game to iOS and Android platforms next!”
