+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Playdek and Stone Blade Entertainment have released Rise of Vigil – an in-app expansion for the iOS card game Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer. The expansion adds a new energy shard mechanic, which gives players the ability to upgrade heroes, monsters, and constructs. This changes the dynamic of certain cards; making weaker ones potentially much more powerful.

Rise of Vigil also includes 46 new center deck cards; including 11 new Monster cards, 24 new Hero cards, 11 new Construct cards, and new starting deck art as well as new background theme art and music.

Joel Goodman, CEO of Playdek says,  “We’re excited to release this new expansion to the popular Ascension series and we thank fans for waiting. The new energy shard cards energize the gameplay by making players rethink old strategies.”

You can download Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer for free, and purchase the Rise of Vigil in-game update for $3.99.

Ubisoft is releasing the Griffin Bane Expansion for Might & Magic Duel of Champions. The expansion comes with 100 new cards, six new heroes, and updated gameplay mechanics. Griffin Bane is designed to allow players to acquire cards more quickly from the six different factions: players only have to win one game against a faction to earn an achievement and unlock the faction’s deck.

Griffin Bane is also removing the pre-made decks of each faction from the shop. Players will instead win decks from completing game achievements. Samuel Jobin, Producer of Might & Magic Duel of Champions, said “We are giving new players access to more decks earlier in the game so they can understand how to play the different factions the game offers. It definitely strengthens our game as one of the highest quality free-to-play online card games.”

Space Hulk is adventure enough by itself (at least according to our review), but the iPad game’s latest update includes a new expansion pack called Space Wolves – adding an entirely new campaign and other features to the original game.

Space Wolves includes the “Fangs of Fenris” campaign, which is made up of 3 completely new missions set in a “cool and chilly environment.” Along with the missions, Space Wolves also comes with 11 new unique terminators, brutal new weapons such as the Frost Axe and Wolf Claw, and new skills Murderous Lighting and Hurricane that come via a “Runepriest.” Additionally, the expansion includes new “chapter specific rules,” attempting to add an entirely new dimension to the game.

Summoner Wars is Getting a Price Overhaul, Along with a New Expansion

Posted by on August 2nd, 2013
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

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 Cities and Knights expansion introduces various new gameplay mechanics that add even more variety to Catan. Invest new trade goods in city improvements to build one of the three metropolises of Catan – but beware of the barbarians attracted by Catan’s new wealth! You’ll need your best knights to fend them off! C&K contains a short campaign and 7 challenging maps.

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.
