Welcome to a round up of the week! We have our official PS4 release date, Kismet’s Draft, and more:
On Wednesday we announced a special new draft format for your enjoyment. Kismet Drafts, a special event using curated packs of cards from sets 3-7, will be coming out today! Enjoy some of the best HEX has to offer, hand picked by our R&D team for maximum wackiness. As if that weren’t enough, every third match win will award one of 6, beautifully animated sleeves! They are exclusive to this mode, so jump in today when this special event goes live and get lucky!
In our original announcement, we also gave the full card list for these special Kismet Packs. It turns out Kismet is fickle and has some slight changes for maximum fun. Here they are!
Champions and Gems have also been changed to Standard Legal. These tweaks add a few new viable archetypes to this wacky, mashup format. It’s exciting, and we can’t wait to jump in and start playing with you guys later today.
Good news! We have passed the Sony submission process for our PS4 client, HEX: Card Clash. We are super stoked! We also have an official release date—Tuesday, October 17th. This is pushed back slightly from the 10th so that Sony marketing wizards can go to town, but it is a date we can now hang our hat on. This client is the result of some incredibly dedicated work by the team, and we can’t wait to release it into the wild.
We are setting sail! Say good by to the Coastline Battleboard on Friday, October 13th at 10am Pacific. In its place, we will have the squee-worthy Boat Battleboard:
Sea your opponents cower in fear before this mighty board. If you’ve ever wanted to be a pirate, you’ll soon have your chance. For now, pick up that Coastline Battleboard if you haven’t already so you can have a matching pair. We’re shoving off, and it won’t be back for some time.
The HEX Bash and HEX Clash are back once more! Saturday and Sunday, starting at 8am PT (Timezone Conversion), you have another chance to prove your mettle and walk away with cash and exclusive prizes! Will you end up a proud owner of these fine cosmetics like last week’s Bash or Clash winners?
Join us this weekend and find out!
Please note: if you happen to have technical issues with the Clash or Bash events, our support team requests that you submit an output log from that same day along with your ticket. This is essential, not only to ensure your ticket gets resolved in a timely fashion, but also to help us prevent similar problems from occurring in the future. Output, error, and crash logs can be found in the HEX: Shards of Fate program install folder on your machine.
Our friend Robb Mommaerts is doing a Kickstarter to raise funds for a gorgeous collection of his black and white illustrations.
Robb Mommaerts’s work has appeared everywhere from games, comics, to children’s books. But with your help, for the first time ever, they will be collected in one beautiful place. If you enjoy whimsy coupled with fantastic detail, then you should definitely check this out!
See you in the battlegrounds~
