Shardbound is an immersive, multiplayer collectible tactics game packed with rich lore, deep strategy, and cutthroat competition. Set in the lush Axis islands, players must craft mind-bending card decks to outwit opponents and snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. Embark on an epic quest to preserve the bonds of the Lifeweave and uncover the secrets of the Shards. Own your deck and your opponents on a hex grid battlefield. Just when they think the cards are stacked against you… crush them with your signature style. Shardbound isn't waiting for the future of gaming to arrive; we're building it. Forget what you think you know — we’re breaking through all that.
Developed by former creators of Vainglory, the breakthrough mobile game, and published by Immutable Games, Shardbound invites you into a vast universe of limitless adventure, where the world is yours for the taking. SHARDBOUND is a next-generation collectible strategy game combining the deep strategy of a tactics battler (cf. Final Fantasy Tactics), the collectibility of a collectible card game (cf. Hearthstone, MTG), the satisfying progression of “just one more run!” roguelite (cf. Hades, Slay the Spire) and the must-see-tv thrill of a head-to-head poker tournament (cf. WSOP).
The essence of Shardbound lies in 1-on-1 Player vs Player (PvP) matches, spotlighting five distinctive commanders and an extensive collection of 250+ units and spells that constitute the core content. Each unit, embodied by a card, plays a strategic role in players' skillfully crafted decks for battles. As a core commander representing one of five factions, your goal is to adeptly protect this central figure utilizing your skills and minions.
Victory unfolds either by vanquishing the opposing commander or by accumulating points through an innovative system where your army gathers randomly spawned Victory Crystals, accumulating 10 Victory Points for a triumphant win. Explore the dynamic world of Shardbound, where tactical prowess and strategic deck-building converge for an unparalleled gaming experience.
Shardbound features five unique ‘Schools of Weaving’, each offering a distinct style of play. The diversity of factions adds a layer of strategy, as players must understand the strengths and weaknesses of every faction to maximize their chances of victory.
In addition to the factions, Shardbound boasts hundreds of collectible units. Each unit has its own unique abilities and characteristics, allowing for a wide range of strategic options. The vast array of units ensures that no two games are the same, providing endless replayability.
Every unit in Shardbound belongs to one of the colors of The Lifeweave, each having its own distinct personality, powers and Commander. A standard deck consists of 30 cards and must include one Commander and one Relic.
Each card comes to life as a living, breathing 3D unit that players must maneuver across the battlefield to defeat their opponents.
