The latest expansion for Skyweaver, Hexbound Invasion, lands on January 16th. Featuring 50 new cards, 10 for each Prism, this expansion release includes a new card ability, and the new Skypass!

Skyweaver prepares to release their next expansion, Hexbound Invasion. The lore for this release features armies of creatures infected by Hexbound sickness gathering for destruction while the other forces of the world marshal their troops for defense. With ten new cards for each Prism, six units and four spells, there should be plenty of opportunity for everyone to tweak their decks with these new cards.

Hexbound Invasion comes with a new card Ability called Slay. Slay triggers when the card damages and destroys an enemy unit. The effects from triggering Slay vary from card to card. Here are a few examples in the images below.

Skyweaver is still in the process of revealing the cards from this new expansion. They have been revealing four cards per day partnered with various streamers and other community folks. You can see the reveal schedule on the Hexbound Invasion page. You can also see all of the revealed cards so far on their Discord server.

And don’t forget that this is not a pack sale. Skyweaver doesn’t sell packs! Players must acquire these cards in-game, either through rewards or purchases from other players.

The release of Hexbound Invasion also ties into the release of Skypass, Skyweaver’s new battle pass system. Skypass will run in seasons, with every player’s progress resetting with each new season. This will also affect the player’s overall level, as that level will now be the same as the player’s Skypass level. Skypass will basically replace the current level rewards.

How to get Started in Skyweaver?

Skyweaver is a fantasy-themed, collectible card game with play and earn opportunities. Playing Skyweaver is free and easy. The onboarding process is very smooth and the tutorials available make the game easy to approach, even if you are unfamiliar with the trading card game genre. Before entering PvP arenas you will need to gain experience by battling against bots. Along the way, you will earn basic cards and heroes to help build your first decks. Skyweaver also offers a ‘Discovery’ game mode, where each player begins with a semi-random deck.

Skyweaver doesn’t sell card packs. Players must earn cards by playing, or buy cards from other players.

Though basic cards are bound to the player’s account, Skyweaver also features Silver and Gold card rewards which can be traded on the market. Players earn these cards by reaching the top of the leaderboards, or competing in Conquest mode. Tickets for Conquest mode cost $1.50 (though they can also be won in-game). Conquest mode is a single-elimination mode, where players can earn Silver and Gold cards for winning 1,2, or 3 matches in a row.

The game plays in your web browser or with the native apps available for PC, Mac, iOS, and Android. All the information to begin playing is available in our Skyweaver guide here. Skyweaver is officially in an ‘open beta’ state, but it already has a fully functioning game ecosystem and market. To learn more about this game, read our full Skyweaver Review.
