AY Games today announced the Steam Early Access release date for Deck of Ashes, their story-driven deck-building RPG with a procedurally-generated twist on its world and permadeath. It will also feature an open world with strategic turn-based gameplay and a wide variety of cards to fit your unique playstyle.
In Deck of Ashes, players will find themselves scouring a grim fantasy world in search of combat cards, supplies, and other resources – all while battling against some of the vilest beasts the cursed land has to offer. While collecting cards to outfit their deck with a band of ruthless antiheroes, players will choose their champion — each of whom has a unique card deck — and take on the world, one intense encounter after another.
At the beginning of the game, players are given a starting Battle Deck containing weak, basic cards. Additional cards are crafted from recipes and require Ash. These recipes can be obtained by purchasing them from a merchant in the camp, an event known as an Ash Storm, opening chests, buying a special upgrade and meditating after battle, and certain random events.
Deck of Ashes will be entering Steam Early Access on April 11th, 2019. For more information, visit the Steam page.
