Online strategy card game fans, grab a pen and mark your calendar. Ubisoft just announced a new expansion for Might & Magic: Duel of Champions that’ll be released on October 9, 2014. The “Sins of Betrayal” expansion shares the story of an endless family war between six heirs of Duke Slava Griffin after he is murdered. His most loyal child, Anastasya, ventures into a dream in order to figure out who took control of her mind and used her to kill her father.
You’re able to experiment with new decks in Sins of Betrayal where you can collect up to 100 new cards. In addition to new decks, you’ll notice a replay manager which allows you to view your past duels so you can work on your strategies and skills for future matches. Enjoy six new heroes that are members of the Griffin clan but are plotting against one another since their allegiance lies with another faction.
This new expansion sounds great and the new features seem impressive, but you’re going to notice some slight tweaks to the rules. In an effort to level the playing field, you’re no longer be able to draw a card during the supply phase or use your hero’s ability when you enjoy the first turn. If you go second, you will start the game with a Dragon Crystal that can be used during the match.
Might & Magic: Duel of Champions is available to download in the App Store for free with in-app purchases. The “Sins of Betrayal” expansion won’t be available until October 9th.
