I have to admit that on the back of Chronicle: Runescape Legends, I was well and truly looking forwards to playing Hex: Shards of Fate. I have to confess that I’d never played it before and had only briefly heard about it. As someone who thoroughly enjoys the likes of Hearthstone, but always found Magic the Gathering too daunting to delve too deeply into, Hex is potentially straddling both games and comes armed with a hefty Kickstarter war chest.
With today’s release of Chronicles of Entrath, Gameforge and HEX Entertainment have published the largest PvE update for HEX: Shards of Fate to date. At the heart of this expansion lies the extensive campaign.

Over the weekend, Irvine-based HEX Entertainment held its inaugural eSports event for its popular new trading card/MMO HEX: Shards of Fate. The fledgling event proved a success, drawing HEX fans from around the world to the Santa Ana eSports Arena to watch the best HEX players battle it out for their share of the $100,000 prize pool. During the action packed event, we grabbed HEX Entertainment CCO Corey Jones and wrung a few answers from him regarding the new tourney.
Sunday morning in sleepy Santa Ana, California saw HEX fanatics lined up outside a modest red brick building, chattering excitedly and no wonder.

Players from Russia, Europe and the United States will be facing off for a share of the purse with all of the action broadcast live on the HEX Twitch.tv channel.
Hex: Shards of Fate has recently left its beta status behind and launched a major feature update. Garnering a lot of press in the meantime has led to a lot of new players coming over from Hearthstone and Magic: The Gathering to see what this “new” kid on the block has to offer. In Part 1, I went over what a Magic: The Gathering player can expect coming over to Hex. In this part, I’ll be discussing what a Hearthstone player will encounter, and boy, is it ever going to be different.
Hex: Shards of Fate has recently left its beta status behind and launched a major feature update. Garnering a lot of press in the meantime has led to a lot of new players coming over from Hearthstone and Magic: the Gathering to see what this “new” kid on the block has to offer.
