Overview

Duelyst is a free to play team based multiplayer game developed and published by Counterplay Games. It features turn based strategic combat, multiple game modes, ranked matches and squad customization. The development studio comprises talented and experienced members who previously worked for well established companies such as Blizzard Entertainment, mostly known for their insanely popular MMORPG World of Warcraft, or Insomniac Games the creators of Ratchet & Clank series. Duelyst funds were independently secured through a Kickstarter campaign and the gaming community gave the seal of approval on Steam Greenlight.

The combat system is one of the game’s strongest features. Players will build a squad of units and face computer or human adversaries in fast paced turn based matches. The developers describe the combat system as highly tactical, similar to old school board games but without all the annoying and time consuming calculations. Unit placement on the battle board is one key element that may lead to a success or to a defeat. The goal is to take down the enemy general, that’s how Duelyst confrontations are won. The game offers a generous unit selection with six distinct alliances (factions) and more than 300 unique cards to choose from. Duelyst reminds of squad based RPG games where players select characters with different abilities to be part of their teams. Squad customization is another important game system. With so many possible combinations, each player has the opportunity to design his or her original squad with a personalized play style. Each card has unique attributes, effects or skills. When choosing squad units, players have to carefully consider each unit’s attributes and how they interact with other units. Those who fully understand their squad synergy are one step closer to winning a confrontation. Duelyst matches are meant to be a fast paced intensive experience that doesn’t take longer than 30 minutes but that is always up to the players and used strategies.

Duelyst has four main modes. Ranked draft and ranked normal modes are designed for players that want to interact with the MMO playerbase in a competitive way. In both modes, a turn lasts only 90 seconds and other special rules may apply. Those who don’t like to be under pressure can choose asynchronous Practice Casual mode for a more beginner friendly Duelyst PvP experience. Single player mode is similar to Practice Casual but the confrontations are live and the player faces only computer controlled opponents. Conquering single player challenges unlocks tons of rewards such as new cards, abilities and skins. Duelyst has 3D battle maps, nice animations and has been praised by popular gaming websites as a great strategy game.
