DUELYST II | July 29 Network Test | Abyssian Starter Deck

When DUELYST was shut down a few years ago I and many others were heartbroken. It was a tactical card & board game unlike anything else and the gameplay coupled with the lore, artwork, and music all melded together to create an absolute gem of a game.

Shortly after the game was shuttered a group of fans started their quest to keep it going in whatever capacity they could. Now here we are, with DUELYST II, after an agreement was made with the original company that provided this fan group with the original code base and assets and a licensing agreement to move the game forward. DUELYST II plays slightly different from the original, has a new balance pass, and will offer (when in a stable state) a Classic queue to play the original game with the final patch it recieved.

After a rocky hour of soft lock loops and crashes, I got to play my first game of DUELYST in years. This is an early game where I grabbed an Abyssian starter deck and hopped in. DUELYST is such a fun game and I think this new incarnation deserves to be in front of as many eyes as it can be.
