Indie publisher Digerati have confirmed that the card-battling action strategy game Golem Gates is getting a release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch this April. An ancient threat is coming and it’ll be down to you to protect the world against it – that’s just the hand you’ve been dealt!
Golem Gates, developed by Laser Guided Games, has a post-apocalyptic sci-fi vibe to it and blends together some action-strategy with card battling. As the Harbinger, you’ll have to stand guard and pit conjured armies against otherworldly forces surging from the Golem Gates. Wielding the nanite-infused power of The Ash, the aim is to look after a world ravaged by ancient wars. In doing so, you get to choose from 100 cards (known as Glyphs) to enable the ability to unleash diverse units, buildings, buffs, and more in tactical combat across single player, challenging scenarios, co-op survival, and local/online multiplayer.
Randomised drawing of the aforementioned cards and quick unit placement means you’ll have to adapt on the fly as you formulate a strategy to succeed. Do you add more forces to a battle to turn the tide, transform a scouting party into an army, place emergency defences to respond to the enemy approach, or hide an outpost in a direction that the enemy won’t expect? The choice is yours to make, but beware because the enemy can do the same and with the right Glyph chosen, your forces can be destroyed just as fast as they were created.
“We know strategy games have historically been thought of as more of a PC thing, but we think console players will be delighted by the changes Golem Gates has made to the formula that make it feel right at home played on a couch with a gamepad, or on the go on Switch.” said Digerati Director Nick Alfieri.
“Having worked on it for the past four years, Golem Gates has been a labour of love,” said the game’s creator, Matt Oelfke. “Golem Gates has been a blast on Steam and we’re thrilled console players will also have the chance to experience this unique strategy game.”
Golem Gates is due for release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch this April, but at this moment in time an exact date hasn’t been specified. Once that’s announced though, we’ll make sure to keep you in the loop!
