Strife Developer’s New CCG Arena Game Hits Steam Early Access

The full launch is scheduled for release later this year.

Strife and Heroes of Newerth developer S2 Games has released its free-to-play online collectible card arena game Brawl of Ages on Steam through Early Access for PC, Mac, and Linux.

Brawl of Ages is a card-battling game that aims to combine the “quick competitiveness and on-the-fly strategy of the collectible card arena genre with the customization and personalization only possible in a PC game.”

Brawl of Ages offers “simple core gameplay”, while still including “endless strategic options.”

“As we developed Brawl of Ages and took feedback from the closed beta, we were inspired by several RTS, MOBA, RPG, and Tower Defense games as we wanted to hit the key features of these games with none of the drawbacks typically found in these genres,” S2 Games CEO Marc DeForest said.

Brawl of Ages was designed with casual and competitive gamers in mind so players can quickly enjoy an intense action-strategy game or dig deeper and create unique decks and strategies as they rank up over time.”

Brawl of Ages lets you build a deck of cards from across a “broad selection of unique card types.” After putting a deck of 10 cards together, two players go head-to-head in battles where each player tries to take down their opponent’s base.

The three modes available in Brawl of Ages include Ladder, Conquest, and Brawl Club. You can learn more about these and more items on the Brawl of Ages Steam page.

The full launch is scheduled for later this year, and the game features microtransactions. There will be new “features, modes, and other content,” in the final edition.
