Delve into a world of strategy, magic, and action in the free-to-play roleplaying game The Duelyst.
If you are into games such as Hearthstone or maybe even Final Fantasy Tactics, you might want to take a closer peak at The Duelyst. Counterplay Games are bringing strategic, turn-based battles to the free-to-play online gaming world. In this game you get to experience everything from retro graphics to an anime inspired art design to profound tactics and varied gameplay. But let’s take one thing at a time!
First and foremost, you need to know that The Duelyst prides itself on its retro graphics. This is clear from the very moment you delve into the game. The pixelated visuals remind us of those classic strategy games that we used to love on our SNES. These games would captivate us for hours upon hours, and The Duelyst is no exception. It takes what you loved about those turn-based combat games and brings it into the 21st century. Instead of only battling it out against bots, you get to play against a global community of players who are all trying to climb up the ranking.
The next thing you should know about the indie game is that it is highly competitive. The online game features such complex gameplay that depends on the right strategy and fast-paced thinking, that it is more than optimized for eSports. There’s no need to worry about not getting the hang of it quickly enough, as The Duelyst features a very user friendly tutorial that is not only fun, but also challenging already. It will teach you everything you need to know about the complex strategies and the endless possibilities in the game. After that you are ready to battle it out against other players in heated PvP matches.
Games like Hearthstone have often been criticized for depending too heavily on luck. That is something that you don’t have to fear in The Duelyst. Sure, luck always plays some kind of role in turn-based games like this, but tactics are what define matches first and foremost. The infinite possibilities allow you to always turn battles around if you make the right moves. More than 300 battle units, spells, and artifacts are at your disposal. And if you do end up losing a battle, there’s no need to fret. Each match only lasts for about 5-10 minutes, allowing you to quickly try your luck again in another round.
