Their game’s lore will use these stories to weave their world together throughout the single-player campaign as well as their online multiplayer format.
In a statement, Peter Hu explains their thoughts on the CCG market, “with all the digital CCGs by big-name companies coming out recently, you might wonder why we’re making another one. But in truth, the genre is still relatively new, and there’s a lot of game design space yet to be explored. We believe that Mythgard’s innovations on the form will stand out in people’s minds for a long time to come. Personally, of all the titles I’ve worked on, this is the one that I’ve enjoyed the most – and I sincerely hope that shines through when you sit down to play it.”
With only a handful of CCG’s out there, now is the perfect time for games like Mythgard to make its mark. Rhino Games has revealed Mythgard will be entering a closed beta period that is set to go live starting January 2019.
