Cardpocalypse has launched for PC and Apple Arcade back in September and has received solid reviews. And to keep its promise, the developer Gambrinous and the publisher Versus Evil has announced that the consoles version of Cardpocalypse is coming in December.
If you haven't heard of this game, it's a single-player card game that surprisingly doesn't have any microtransactions. Its seems that developers are shying away from earning money from players through collectible card games, and promote grinding more.
Nevertheless, below is the new story trailer of the game, which you can have a look:
The story of Cardpocalypse
Cardpocalypse rotates around an unlucky 10-year-old boy Jess on his journey from the bullied to the hero of the school.
Our protagonist is a young boy with disabilities: he doesn't have his legs and has to travel using wheels. You can already tell that Jess is the target of many bullying cases in the school. Luckily, there's still something that he can enjoy on his school days. It's an extremely famous card game that has run over the school - Mega Mutant Power Pets.
The game is too famous for its good, to the point that parents the school has forbidden students from playing the game. Well, just play it when they're not watching, and that's all fine! At least until the day the worse nightmare comes, as the monsters in the cards have jumped into real life.
Now, Jeff and his friends will have to use the power of their decks to save the friends, the school, and potentially the world!
Nothing much of Cardpocalypse's gameplay features have changed from our previous article. But if you don't have time to read through it, here's the recap:
Cardpocalypse is a single-player card game with comic-style arts. As the nature of a collectible card game, you can dive in the battles with other friends and the monsters using your deck that you're very proud of. The more victory you have, the more cards you will unlock, which you can use to customize your deck for tougher bosses.
However, Cardpocalypse has something very special under its sleeve. First of all, it doesn't require you to purchase anything to unlocks all of the cards. Instead, you can keep playing (far from the sight of the teachers) and unlock all of the cards through continuous matches and trading. Secondly, the pre-made cards are not the limit with Cardpocalypses.
To be more specific, you can create your new cards by combining the torn parts of other cards. This allows you to customize the trigger cost and the effects of the cards in the craziest way possible. Furthermore, you can also make your cards prettier by adding stickers and further mutations to your existing cards as well.
With all those intriguing features, Cardpocalypse is going to be the most unique card game that you've come across.
