HEX: Shards of Fate – Herofall Set Announced
Expansion introduces over 270 new cards | New eSports tournament series in the “Cosmic Crown Showdown”
Karlsruhe, August 3rd 2016 – Gameforge and developers HEX Entertainment are revealing the first details on the upcoming fifth set, “Herofall”. The latest card set brings an additional 275 new cards to HEX: Shards of Fate, and is slated for release this fall. Alongside the new cards, we will see the first tournament based on the newly introduced ladder system in the “Cosmic Crown Showdown”.
Let the Games Begin!
In the Cosmic Crown Showdown, all those players who’ve reached the Cosmic tier play off against one another, with the top 64 players from both the “constructed” and “limited” ladders being eligible to participate. The qualifying rounds will revolve around the ongoing ladder system, where each season has a two-month run. By the end of August we’ll know who the finalists are, and the first Cosmic Crown Showdown can get rolling at the beginning of September.
Of Heroes and Mercenaries
Alongside new card designs, 18 legendary cards and 20 new champions, the update brings with it a selection of new sleeves and PvE cards. The conflict between HEX’s two factions—between the Ardent and the Underworld—will be in the spotlight for the new troops, actions and heroes.
New tactical possibilities also unfold as new keywords—specific card mechanics—make their way into the game. More details will be released on the HEX community website http://en.hex.gameforge.com/news.html soon.
