In the game, you’ll be tasked with building “masterful decks, dominate on the battlefield, and to become history's greatest strategies,” according to the accompanying press release. Additional details were shared regarding its setting.

Set in Elysium; City of Legends, Elysium features a huge array of history's pre-eminent generals, each with a unique playstyle such as the ranged tactics of Napoleon, the control-minded methods of Cao Cao, and the aggressive nature of Lagertha. Joining them in the fray of battle is an armada of historically inspired battle cards from throughout the ages, like the ferocious Jian Sword Guard, devastating Mangonels, supreme Trireme warships and much more.

The game features dynamic battleline mechanics, midgame deck editing, and the new Daybreak mechanic bringing the feeling of the battlefield to the CCG Board. Featuring both single player and multiplayer modes.

Starting this month, Elysium will be available to play in limited testing phases on mobile platforms with a PC release to follow later this year. Sign up to take part in future testing opportunities here. Check out the trailer below.
