Starting from December 15th Blockade Games will release an early version of their cyberpunk role playing game Neon District to key and trophy holders. This early version allows players to challenge each other in turn-based combat, or battle against the computer in a practice match. A public version of the battle mode will be released at a later date.
Neon District is a turn-based role playing game that uses cards as combat mechanics. The developers have been working for three years on the game, which has resulted in tens of thousands of designs for weapons, armors, characters and locations. Gameplay mixes role playing mechanics with trading cards, introducing different character and weapon classes alongside more than 400 different cards. Blockade Games has made the game to be completely free-to-play.
In their official weblog the development team also announced a limited edition Death Knight sword and a discount for the in-game currency NEON. In addition they announced that they will add a passive PVP mode to the game in January 2021. In Neon Pizza players can earn NEON by delivering pizza or ambushing pizza delivery agents. Players will need to tactically position their team in order to beat their opponent. D
During Spring 2021 Neon District will introduce its campaigns and missions. This traditional singleplayer experience was the original vision for the game. Completing missions will earn players NEON as well.
No longer made for Steam
Blockade Games has decided to abandon the development of Neon District for Steam. Or, as they put it, they have put the development ‘on hold’. Instead Neon District will be a web-only experience, and everything will work on both desktop and mobile devices. In the future they also want to make the game available through a standalone app for mobile devices.
