Another day, another card game, but this one looks like it’s charting its own path away from the likes of Hearthstone, and that’s a good thing in my books. Chronicle: Runescape Legends is an upcoming CCG based on the Runescape MMO, and it’s promising an interesting new twist on the CCG formula. RuneScape can be run with varying levels of graphical detail. High-detail graphics enhance texture and design, rs gold for sale while low-detail graphics provide a cleaner look and can reduce lag on less powerful computers.
Membership unlocks many features of RuneScape that are not available to free players: almost all recent updates to RuneScape have been for members, with the exception of a few major updates in the past months. And yet, while you’re thinking of how best to get through the turn and weighing up the various tradeoffs of playing a card, so is your opponent, and different legends and their decks will be geared towards different strategic approaches and different stats. As an example, Vanescula, one of the two new characters coming into the game for the open beta, uses her own health as a weapon against her opponent.
Should you reach the end of the fifth turn, the two heroes will face off, dealing damage to one another time and again, until only one stands. Taking a few points of damage for greater rewards is well and good, but not if those few points at the end of a turn end up being what kills you, when combined with particularly offence oriented cards from the other side of the table. There are very few quests available to free players, while new quests available to members are added at a rate of one or two a month. This is a condensed list of features unlocked with membership below:
All Solomon’s General Store pets are accessed and customized through the pet interface. This interface can be accessed via two ways: by right-clicking the summoning icon on the action bar and selecting “pet interface,” or by opening the hero interface and selecting the “pets” tab. Pets can also be summoned without entering the pet interface by right-clicking the summoning icon on the action bar and selecting “summon pet.”
We’d like to thank the many tens of thousands of cunning card tacticians who have helped us in open beta with feedback to refine the Chronicle’s unique CCG gameplay mechanics. For our existing open beta players, and anyone who signs up over the weekend, we’re offering up three free card packs so they can build their decks ready to take on new rivals at launch. RuneScape uses a graphics engine called “RuneTek 5″, which provides support for multiple graphics platforms such as DirectX, OpenGL and video game consoles, as well as graphical effects such as sky boxes, bloom lighting and Z-buffering.
The high-detail version incorporates hardware acceleration and can be rendered using either Java OpenGL or DirectX. CRL offers expansive deck building with hundreds of unique cards (unsurprising since it is a card game after all), an offline mode called Gauntlet (which I know will please all those who clamor for good, offline games), crafting tools and much more. Like Blizzard’s Hearthstone, CRL is bringing cheap rs gold the lore and characters of an MMO into another genre and building CCG systems on top of them.
