In Shards of Infinity, players must gather forces, defeat their opponent, and rebuild the Infinity Engine from the destructive shards which have caused chaos in the world for over one hundred years. Shards of Infinity was a relative success when it was released in 2018, partially due to the interesting Mastery mechanic from Ascension designers Gary Arant and Justin Gary.

Mastery is earned throughout the game, and the more mastery a player possesses, the stronger their cards become. This means that even weak cards can become powerful throughout the game. Furthermore, if any player reaches level 30 Mastery, their Infinity Shard activates, and they instantly defeat their opponent!

Now Temple Gates Games, responsible for the digital versions of Race for the Galaxy and the Ascension VR, have teamed up with publisher Stoneblade Entertainment to release a digital version of Shards of Infinity.

Expected for release in Spring 2019 on Andriod, iOS and Steam, the digital iteration of this card game should entice more players into the Shards of Infinity universe. Players can expect AI and asynchronous multiplayer options, as well as standard pass-and-play multiplayer gaming.

I think digital versions of card games are an easy way for players to test whether a new mechanic is right for them, so I'm happy to see this development. The digital version will cost $7.99, regardless of the platform which is good to hear, but there is always the concern of the dreaded micro-transaction, and there's no word yet as to whether physical cards can be uploaded. Check out the official press release here.
