Should you be looking for a decent collectible card game that fuses in some RPG elements, then Cardpocalypse certainly delivers. But for as good as the base game is, those behind its creation have now enhanced it even more, throwing in a brand new Gauntlet Mode.
Available on Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch, the new Gauntlet Mode for Cardpocalypse comes about thanks to those at Gambrinous and Versus Evil wanting the very best for their deck-building RPG. With its introduction you’ll have the opportunity to take charge of your very own champion and fight your way through ever trickier battles.
Gauntlet mode is a roguelike mode where every run is unique; you’ll pick your champion and then fight your way through ever more difficult battles. After every win the chance comes about to draft new cards, rules and rewards for your precious decks, all in an effort to build the ultimate combo and beat the Gauntlet.
If you haven’t yet played Cardpocalypse then you would do well to check out our full review of the game on Xbox One. In a nutshell though, it is an RPG where battles are played with an epic collectible card game, letting you build killer card decks, twist the rules and try to save the world. Think of it as a single-player choice driven RPG about being a 90’s kid in which you can trade, earn, wager, change rules and permanently alter cards, and you’ll be somewhere close.
“Gauntlet mode is a whole new way to play Cardpocalypse and introduces an even more challenging prospect to the game for players to enjoy, and best of all it’s completely free” said Colm Larkin, Director of Gambrinous. “If you are a fan of roguelikes, this is absolutely the expansion for you and really amps up the player challenge.” He added.
You should be finding the new Gauntlet Mode available in Cardpocalypse on Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch right now. If you don’t have a copy of the game, your favourite digital store will sort you out.
