Plan and execute the perfect strategy to emerge victorious from each hand crafted battle in this story-driven, tactical card game. Every fight has different rules and objectives. Prepare your force with the right characters, spells and items to conquer every foe!
Build winning decks of warriors, equipment, and spells from four different factions in this story-driven tactical card combat game. Battle your way through a series of major tournaments, each with their own opponents, battlefields, and even rules. Earn new cards and upgrade your favorites. Combine them into any number of decks: you’re free to experiment as much as you like! Do prepare carefully for key battles with major characters: you’ll only get a few chances to come out victorious. Defeat will change the course of the story, though the game continues…
All the while you will meet new characters, have conversations, and make decisions that will affect the fate of your countrymen.
You play as Finn, a young man tasted with preventing a neighboring nation from attacking his home. The only to achieve this is to master the card game they use to teach aristocrats the art of warfare: the Way. Infiltrate the tournaments they hold, and you can get close to their elite commanders. What you do once you get there will be up to you. Just remember, your decisions have consequences!
Simple rules, infinite possibilities
The core gameplay of this story-driven, tactical card game is deceptively simple: every turn you can play one warrior, and one support card. All your units will advance towards the enemy at once and attack if they can! But the challenge lies in what combinations you choose, how you build your deck and when you hold back cards for a better opportunity. Your opponents play by the same rules… most of the time. Each battle can have different rules or special features that can be exploited by smart deck building!
Warriors range from front line brutes to fragile archers and supporting spellcasters. Equipment cards buff warriors on the battlefield, while spells can aid your fighters or harm the enemy. There’s no one way to play – build a deck that uses tough fighters with armor and healing to grind down your opponents, roll in with high damage archers and poison wielding bandits to put down enemy warriors before they can even react, and much more. With a huge range of cards to choose from, the number of possible combinations is enormous.
Every battle a new challenge!
Each battle in Ash of Gods: The Way is a carefully crafted test of your skills with different objectives and opponents. Whether you’re capturing checkpoints, defending your commander from a deadly enemy or fighting a series of one on one duels, you’ll need all your wits about you to prevail. The outcome of every battle is significant!
Make sure to use every detail of the battlefield to your advantage. You’ll encounter traps, which can be a danger or an opportunity depending on your strategy. Power runes however, could change the course of a battle entirely!
If your current tactics aren’t working out, just switch out your cards and upgrades to try something different. There’s no penalty for experimentation or changing strategy.
Choose your own way
Ash of Gods: The Way is a novel genre mix of RPG style conversations, a collectible card game, and a turn-based tactical battle — your choices in all of these areas will influence the outcome of your story.
You build your deck in Ash of Gods: The Way with a combination of character cards and support cards. Your characters are deployed to the battlefield, while support cards boost your characters or cast powerful spells. Both types of card can be upgraded to become stronger. Characters can even gain brand new skills, like cunning counter-attacks or armor smashing strikes.
Each card belongs to one of five distinct factions in the game, all with their own synergies and metagame strengths. Earn new cards by winning battles, buying them, or completing special tasks. You can mix and match faction cards as you wish, or focus on just one — it’s your call — your way.
