Roguebook Gets Combat Trailer
Publisher NACON has released a combat-focused trailer for Abrakam Entertainment’s upcoming deck-building RPG Roguebook. The two-minute video shows off a number of the game’s card-based abilities, as well as the general flow of combat. Players must choose two of the game’s four heroes to take into battle, then play cards to activate their individual abilities. Enemy actions are telegraphed at the beginning of each turn, letting players adjust their strategy accordingly.
Roguebook is co-designed by Magic: The Gathering creator Richard Garfield. The game includes a chapter-based campaign, which requires that players restart after being defeated, but with permanent upgrades available. An epilogue system also introduces customized challenges and additional rewards. Roguebook will launch for PC via Steam on June 17, 2021. PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Nintendo Switch versions are planned to follow at a later date.
