Game studio Immutable has announced an easy way for beginners to get familiar with the trading card game Gods Unchained. They’ve introduced a Welcome Set that gives new players access to a collection of non-tokenized playing cards. According to lead game designer Andrea Davis it was the plan to release the Welcome Set together with Season 1, but the team decided to move ahead.
The Welcome Set is a collection of 70 cards without any rarity. Each card has two copies in the set, bringing the total number of cards to 140. These common cards can’t be fused and can’t be traded or sold on the blockchain-powered marketplace. Immutable will change the contents of the Welcome Set whenever it pleases, to keep giving newcomers a new set of introductory cards.
Every new account will get these cards, while existing accounts will get access soon as well. Later this year the team will revise the onboarding process. In Q4 2020 new players will only get a few new cards, and they will unlock more cards from the Welcome Set while learning about the game and playing matches.
Trial of the Gods coming soon
There’s still no date yet, but the first season of Gods Unchained is coming. Trial of the Gods will introduce new cards, champions and other new mechanics. There will also be an one-of-a-kind mythic card that will be given away in a raffle. The card is called Citadel of the Gods.
Citadel of the Gods is a 1 mana spell that summons three legendary champions for each player, gives both gods protected, ward, a relic and unlocks all mana locks. The card is supposed to allow players to play out the story of Trial of the Gods within a match itself.
What is Gods Unchained?
Gods Unchained is a collectible card game built on the Ethereum blockchain. All cards are stored on the blockchain, giving players full ownership over their own set of cards. Players are rewarded digital cards for playing the game, when they have two identical cards these can be minted into one blockchain-based card. These cards are non-fungible tokens and can be traded, sold, lend, borrowed, or used in the game itself.
Trial of the Gods is expected to launch within a few weeks. The expansion will be an update for the game. Before launch Immutable will sell Season 1 card packs. These cards will only be available for a limited time. The Genesis season already sparked lots of interest.
