February 16 – Cologne – Publisher, Headup and Elder Games are pleased to announce the official release of Cardaclysm: Shards of the Four for Steam on February 26.
Launched on Steam as Early Access in July 2020, the game has since gone through multiple updates, unveiling new cards, artifacts, enemies, and biomes. The full release will unlock the fierce final boss, new deathly realm, and end game content.
Cardaclysm: Shards of the Four is a procedurally generated collectible card game with action RPG elements. Tinkering with magic and spells beyond his ability, a dark wizard accidentally unleashes The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse and their minions. The only way to send them back to the fiery pit from whence they came is by battling through with 240+ cards and 40 artefacts.
In the final chapter of the game, the player must fight through brutal creatures called “Agents of Death” at every corner. Agent of Death is a new enemy type appearing for the first time, and only those who win enough keys are allowed to enter the final realm and face the ultimate boss: Death himself.
