The sci-fi epic re-emerges, this time as a card-battling RPG.
Klei Entertainment’s Griftlands made an appearance at the PC Gaming Show, after essentially debuting in 2017 and disappearing. The excellent 2D art and sci-fi aesthetic still look as great as ever, but the development team has made some changes to the gameplay. Griftlands is now a card-battling RPG of sorts. Check it out below.
Along with 1v1 combat, there are battles involving parties as well. You’ll bring on mercenaries and pick up cards to perform different actions. Some of these cards will be used for conversational pieces as well – it’s possible to Threaten someone or Fast Talk them.
Interestingly, the alpha for Griftlands is coming very soon. It’s out on July 11th for the Epic Games Store, though it doesn’t seem like it will be removed from Steam. Perhaps the alpha will be exclusive to the former before its full launch? Stay tuned for more information, along with more announcements from the PC Gaming Show.
