Runescape Getting Its Own Hearthstone-like Spin-off Card Game
I’m always up for more collectible card games.
Blizzard created another hit out of nowhere when they released Hearthstone, the collectible card strategy game for PC that acted as a spin off and supplement to the Warcraft universe (while being set in it and based on it) earlier this year. The free to play title was an instant hit, and became the most played online card game easily, supplanting genre stalwarts such as Might and Magic and the Pokemon Trading Card Game.
Now, it looks like another MMORPG will be getting its own card based spin-off game: Jagex, the developers of the hit MMORPG Runescape, confirmed today that they would be developing a new game set in the Runescape universe, and that this game would be a collectible card game, same as Hearthstone.
“Played out within the pages of a living book the game focuses on quest building, allowing players to craft their own miniature RPGs against enemies, including classic RuneScape boss monsters, before entering into tense PvP combat,” says the press release.
It’s called Runescape Legends, and it is due some time next year, and that it will be hitting PC, smartphones, and tablets.
