Card Hunter

Card Hunter ready for September 12th release

Card Hunter is out and we've played it; read our Card Hunter review.

The incredibly self-aware, nerdy, online collectible card game Card Hunter will launch on September 12th. It’s free-to-play, browser-based, and built by ex Irrational, Looking Glass and Magic developers. You’re almost definitely going to play it. 

Taking elements of collectable card games and table-top games and smashing them up into something a little unique, Blu Manchu Games’ Card Hunter has been on our notes for some time, despite its humble Flash-based origins. The game has been developed by a team including Jon Chey and Joe McDonagh of Irrational, Dorian Hart of Looking Glass Studios, Richard Garfield, creator of Magic: The Gathering, and Skaff Elias, the designer of Magic. If that’s not a nerdy enough super team for you, then your dream team is something unfeasible. 

The game will be free-to-play, but naturally will be bolstered by microtransactions. These will include additional characters and adventures, a subscription system that offers consistently better rewards, and a one-off $25 payment for the ‘Basic Edition’ that bundles together all the single-player content, along with a month's subscription, nine extra figures and 100 pizza slices - Blu Manchu's paid-for in-game currency.

You can grab yourself a place in the beta right now over at the official website, or just hang on a few weeks for full release. 

Thanks, Rock, Paper, Shotgun
