One of Playdek’s most popular iOS card games, Summoner Wars, is going through a few changes this Monday (8/5).
The most immediately noticeable difference will be the price; or rather the inclusion of one. Playdek is removing the freemium model and making the base game $0.99, with online play available right out of the box, so to speak. A “Lore” menu is also being added so that players can look up background and strategy information, and a new AI opponent is being included for those more interested in solo play.
The expansion will be available through an in-app purchase of $2.99 and includes two new armies: the Benders (pyromancers) and the Mountain Vargath (goatmen). The former focuses on controlling the actions of their rivals, while the latter is all about brute strength.
Both factions and new base game features will be available on Monday.

The expansion promises to continue the story from the original game, with some foreshadowing of the second. The sequel to The Room plans to take players to an even more spectacular place.

Today marks the launch of the first paid expansion for the acclaimed iOS version of the railroad building board game, Ticket to Ride. The Ticket to Ride Pocket: 1910 expansion includes three brand new game modes for players to enjoy and adds 35 new destinations to the game’s US map.
The 1910 Classic mode brings updated route tickets and a slight change to the rules that makes completing the most tickets crucial to winning. The 1910 Mega mode starts each player with 5 route cards instead of 3, doubles the number of available route tickets, and awards bonus points to the most completed routes. Finally, the 1910 Cities mode is a faster game mode in which players contend over a few specific routes, all starting and ending with major cities. Ten new achievements, most of which are from the 1910 pack, are also included.
The Ticket to Ride Pocket: 1910 expansion is available via in-app purchase now for $0.99, so get ready to ride the rails again.
