Well, this looks quite nice and grim, doesn’t it? This is Golem Gates, coming (very) soon for PC and consoles from developer Laser Guided Games and ever-busy publisher Digerati. The latest trailer is below, the game’s press release and some gorgeous multi-platform screens are below the jump. Enjoy!
Action strategy card-battler Golem Gates comes to consoles at the end of the month
Release dates confirmed for PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch
Austin, Texas, USA – 16 May, 2019 – Indie publisher Digerati is delighted to announce that release dates have now been confirmed for the arrival on consoles of Golem Gates. The acclaimed action-strategy card-game hybrid will launch on PlayStation 4 on May 28th, then on Xbox One (and as a full 4K gaming experience on Xbox One X) and Nintendo Switch on May 31st.
Developed by Laser Guided Games, Golem Gates is a post-apocalyptic sci-fi blend of action-strategy and card battler, pitting your conjured armies against otherworldly forces. An ancient threat surges from the Golem Gates, and only the Harbinger stands guard. Wielding the nanite-infused power of The Ash, you must protect a world ravaged by ancient wars. Choose from 100 cards (known as Glyphs) and unleash diverse units, buildings, buffs, and more in tactical combat across single player, co-op, and online multiplayer.
Randomized drawing and quick unit placement means you’ll have to adapt on the fly as you formulate your strategy. Add more forces to a battle to turn the tide, transform a scouting party into an army, place emergency defenses to respond to the enemy, or hide an outpost in a direction the enemy doesn’t expect. The choices are yours, but beware: the enemy will do the same and with the right Glyph your forces can be destroyed as fast as they were created.
Choose your Glyphs: Customize your deck from dozens of units, buildings, traps, buffs, debuffs, and techs
Streamlined tactics: Play cards/Glyphs directly into active combat and adapt at a moment’s notice to defend, flank, and fortify
Hours of unique content: Single player campaign, challenge scenarios, solo/co-op survival, local and online multiplayer, and more
Full 4K gaming on Xbox One X: Enjoy the gorgeous spectacle of science-fantasy warfare and screen-filling magical mayhem
“Golem Gates is a great title and we wanted to make it the best it could possibly be on console. Laser Guided Games’ vision has been fully retained and whether it’s enjoying the game in 1080p, full 4K or on the go, Golem Gates has been fully optimised for every console platform and its individual capabilities,” said Digerati Director Nick Alfieri.
“We are so excited that we can finally reveal Golem Gates’ release date on console,” said the game’s creator, Matt Oelfke. “It’s coming soon and we can’t wait to see how console gamers take to the game. We’ve poured our heart and soul into Golem Gates, so we hope it resonates with players.”
This one certainly looks really impressive, but yes, we’ll have to see how it plays (although I’m not really worried much if at all on that front). We’ll put in a PS4 request and see what we can see shortly.
