Infinity Wars: Reborn for Mac officially launches on Steam
More than two years ago, the digital trading card game Infinity Wars: Reborn launched a Mac and PC beta on Steam. Yesterday, the official version was finally made available for purchase. If you weren’t part of the beta, you should know that unlike most TCGs, Infinity Wars: Reborn fully-animated cards. More than 800 of them, in fact.
But that’s not the only twist Infinity Wars: Reborn offers TCG players. The simultaneous-turn battles enable players and enemies to attack and defend against each other at the same time, and an undo button allows misplays to be reversed.
The official release debuts campaigns for the zombie and monk factions, titled Sleepers of the Avarrach and Descendants of the Dragon. These two PvE campaigns build on the game’s rich lore and provide new players with experience in these factions before joining the fight in PvP. It’s a good way to get caught up quickly, as besting the foes lurking in each faction’s PvE missions yields 40-card starter decks as a reward.
Infinity Wars’ Commander System determines which cards can join a deck and guarantees players’ access to their favorite cards throughout the match. Cards are arranged on 3D battlefields divided into offensive and defensive sections, where players must balance protecting their fortress with penetrating enemy lines.
Infinity Wars: Reborn offers two types of PvP game modes, Draft and Constructed. Constructed mode offers a number of previously made deck options, including fixed deck, which gives newcomers a gentle introduction to deck building and strategy. In the highly competitive Draft mode, players build their deck on the fly before being thrust into battle against a human opponent.
