With “Spellcraft” the studio “One More Game” wants to bring a new title to the action strategy genre. In the alpha test, players can test how it will look.
What kind of game is this? The One More Game studio is made up of team members who have worked on titles such as Warcraft, Diablo, StarCraft and Guild Wars. This experience should now lead to the new title “Spellcraft”, first presented in the spring of 2022.
Spellcraft is meant to be a competitive strategy game where you can allow heroes from different worlds to compete against each other. The game will be Free2Play and will be released on Steam, but there is no official start date yet. The first alpha preview event will be available soon.
How do I access the Alpha event? According to the developer, gameplay preview events are held from time to time, in which interested players can participate. It’s all about Discord.
To participate, players must register on the Spellcraft Discord server (via Discord). There you have to store some information and then you enter a pool with the ability to be selected for alpha previews.
It is currently unknown how many players will be invited, as well as the exact start date of the next preview event.
What’s in Spellcraft?
What can you expect: According to One More Game, Spellcraft should look new and fast. The developers speak of a “real-time tactics” game that requires both strategic thinking and quick decisions.
There is already a first trailer:
In the game you have to collect a certain number of heroes and skillfully use the powers of these characters to defeat your opponent. There should be “almost infinite” possible combinations so that teams feel unique.
Furthermore, the developers explain that Spellcraft should be a game for everyone, which is why they would go the F2P route. However, they point out: “Spellcraft is a free-to-play game. We want the game to be fair for all players, so we avoid monetization exploitation schemes. Our goal is to create a game that is not only free-to-play, but also fair-to-play. “
If you want to take a closer look at the game, you should take the opportunity for an alpha preview. When exactly the game will appear on Steam it is still fully open based on the current state.
