If you’re looking for a game that mixes together ideas from a whole bunch of different genres including deck builders and strategy games, throws in a brilliant, mythological story and keeps everything together with PvP and single player content, then we reckon you should definitely be checking out Runestrike.
The game is set in a world infused with magic after a titanic confrontation between the gods. It’s up to you to use your Champions to harness powerful runes, fight against your enemies and ascend to godhood.
There’s loads more to Runestrike as well, so we thought it was a good idea to write this list to give you an even better idea of why the game is worth picking up. So here we go – these are the five reasons why you should be playing Runestrike right now.
A mythological narrative
Unlike a lot of other games in the genre, Runestrike has a brilliant story built around a variety of different mythologies. It merges them together into an engrossing story of warring gods, magical creatures and powerful champions battling it out against one another.
Those ideas run deep into the mechanics of the game as well, they’re not just window dressing. There are different kinds of magic to use, and multiple single player campaigns for you to work your way through. You’ll need to be on your toes to finish them all, with increasing difficulty adding to the game’s replayability.
Something for everyone
Runestrike has a whole bunch of content, which means it’s going to have something for everyone. Whether you’re into competitive PvP or you’re looking for a massive single player campaign, then you’re in luck. Alongside the campaigns we mentioned above, which include scrapping against Jupiter in The Trials of Athens and battling in ancient Egypt in the Eye or Ra, there’s solo play too.
In the multiplayer realm you can fight for weekly rewards against other players in the Versus Arena and grind your way up the ladder of the leaderboard to prove that you’re the best Runestrike player in the world.
A variety of champions to choose from
There are more than a dozen champions to pick from, each with its own unique skill set and style of play. There’s Morlich the Necromancer, who can use his powers to reanimate the dead. Other characters use powers like lightning, fire and more to take down their enemies.
The size of the decks here mean that building powerful combinations doesn’t have to be too much of a chore as well. You’ll attack with magical powers, brute strength and divine abilities. And the more you fight, the more powerful you’ll become.
Everything is represented with gorgeous art that really brings the experience to life. However you choose to play, Runestrike is a real feast for your eyes.
More content on the way
There’s plenty more Runestrike on the way, from new seasons to additional single player campaigns. The game is regularly updated, and the season system means that there’s always something new to fight for.
New campaigns will add more story driven experiences that let you find out more about the champions you love and keep things fresh as well. And there’s a wonderful community here as well, that’s involved in the design decisions that push the game forwards.
And it’s free!
The best thing is that you can get all of this for free. You can pick up Runestrike from the Play Store and App Store right this second without having to pay a single cent. And there’s a player-first economy that ensures that the game is never going to be pay to win.
Runestrike is a player-first, always expanding mix of awesome single player and competitive multiplayer action that you can pick up for free. If that doesn’t convince you to give it a go, we’re not sure what else we can say.
