New IP is always exciting, especially when it combines turn-based combat with card-game elements. Such is the concept for Immortal Realms: Vampire Wars, a new project from Palindrome Interactive. While its cinematic reveal trailer, which can be viewed above, doesn’t provide all that much to go on, the following details have been released and flesh out (no vampire pun intended) this new experience:
Immortal Realms – Vampire Wars is an engaging strategy game set in a dark vampire world in turmoil, that combines empire management and turn-based combat with card-game elements. Descend into a mythical world filled with horrors and legends in a compelling gothic adventure. Discover the secrets of Nemire and experience an enthralling story from the perspective of four mighty vampire lords with competing agendas.
Command one of three unique vampire clans with distinctive units, powers, gameplay mechanics and characters, making strategic maneuvres in “Kingdom” mode before switching over to “Combat” mode to take on your foes in tense, closely fought battles. Original card game elements enhance the gameplay and provide a refreshing take on the genre. Each clan and vampire lord have access to their own set of cards, which can be combined to powerful effect.
While Immortal Realms currently doesn’t have a hard release date, strategy fans on PC can expect this title in Fall of 2019, while console players will have to satiate their thirst for tactics (and blood) with other games until the first quarter of 2020.
