Total War: Elysium, the free-to-play collectible card game developed by Creative Assembly and inspired by the award-winning strategy series, has unveiled the first footage of its immersive, tactical gameplay, where players strive to build masterful decks, dominate on the battlefield, and to become history’s greatest strategist.
Elysium signals Total War’s expansion into new genres of gaming, whilst remaining true to the strategic formula which has defined the series for the past twenty years.
Set in Elysium; City of Legends, Elysium features a huge array of history’s pre-eminent generals, each with a unique playstyle such as the ranged tactics of Napoleon, the control-minded methods of Cao Cao, and the aggressive nature of Lagertha.
Joining them in the fray of battle is an armada of historically inspired battle cards from throughout the ages, like the ferocious Jian Sword Guard, devastating Mangonels, supreme Trireme warships, and much more.
The exciting gameplay board gives countless options for the general in all of us, with dynamic battleline mechanics, midgame deck editing, and the new Daybreak mechanic bringing the feeling of the battlefield to the CCG Board.
Featuring both single-player and multiplayer modes, Elysium will plunge CCG veterans and beginners alike into a battle for the ages.
Players will be able to continue their quest to become history’s greatest strategist across multiple devices at home, work, or on the go. Starting this month, Elysium will be available to play in limited testing phases on mobile platforms with a PC release to follow later this year.
On the official Twitter account, it’s been revealed that the closed beta testing has started for this game.
“We are very pleased to announce that Total War: ELYSIUM is now entering Closed Beta! We’re very excited to invite you to be the first to experience our new game and feedback to help us make it even better,” says the tweet.
