FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
On Kickstarter Now: Six Expansions for Hero Realms
New players can back it and catch up with the Everything Tier
November 13, 2018 – Framingham, MA – A Kickstarter launched today offers tons of all-new content for Hero Realms, the popular fantasy deckbuilding adventure game.
The Hero Realms Journeys Kickstarter includes:
- Journeys expansions. This series of 12-card expansions will bring players new champions, new actions, and two brand new types of cards: Quests and Relics. Fans can back the project for just $20 to get all four packs.
- The Ancestry Pack lets fans play as a Dwarf, Elf, Ogre, Orc, smallfolk, or – as a Kickstarter-exclusive – a half-demon. Each race has a health modification, special rules, a racial skill or ability card, and two cards that modify the starting deck. Ancestry packs will work with generic starting decks, or combine with character packs. Fans who get this expansion could play as an Orc Wizard, an Elf Thief, or a Half-Demon Cleric (hey – why not?). For $30, backers can get the Ancestry Pack, Journeys, and all applicable stretch goals.
- The Lost Village transforms the Hero Realms base game into a coop adventure: Investigating the disappearance of the population of an entire village. The Lost Village follows Hero Realms: The Ruin of Thandar, and allows players to keep upgrading their characters between fights. For $45, backers can get The Lost Village, the Ancestry Pack, Journeys and all stretch goals.
- The Everything Tier gets backers everything from both this Kickstarter and the first Hero Realms Kickstarter. It’s perfect for new players, because it catches up a collection in one click. It includes Hero Realms, the Character Packs, The Ruin of Thandar, and all six new expansions. It comes in at $99.
New players will find it easy to use the Journeys Kickstarter as an entry point to the game line. They can just back the project, and get the Everything Tier.
The Hero Realms Journeys Kickstarter marks the second time Hero Realms has come to the crowdfunding platform. In 2016, the base game raised more than $550,000 from almost 7,000 backers. The Ruin of Thandar, which allowed fans to play cooperatively, released soon after, turning Hero Realms into an RPG-like leveling deckbuilding game with cooperative play. Since then, Hero Realms has exploded in popularity, winning fans all over the world.
Wise Wizard Games is excited to bring new layers to PVP Hero Realms games, and to bring on the next chapter in cooperative play.
Hero Realms uses a system similar to that of Star Realms Deckbuilding Game, which won seven Game of the Year awards upon its release in 2014.
