The Huntsman: Winter’s Curse, an episodic RPG with collectible card game elements set in the Huntsman universe, is coming first to PC and Mac on April 20, with a PlayStation 4 release happening later in 2016, Desert Owl Games announced today.
Featuring many of the characters from the movies Snow White and the Huntsman and The Huntsman: Winter’s War, The Huntsman: Winter’s Curse will see its first episode released as free-to-play. Subsequent episodes, which continue the main story and include side quests, will be released at an unannounced price.
The Winter’s Curse sees protagonist Elisabeth promising to her dying father to locate her long-lost brothers, partnering up with a young man named Marcus, who possesses magical powers and also wants to find her siblings. Throughout the game, you’ll fight creatures, sorcerers, men, and spar with Eric, the most elite Huntsman.
Desert Owl Games adds:
- Combat in The Hunstman: Winter’s Curse revolves around collectible equipment cards, which provide different options in combat. At the start of every battle, characters draw random equipment cards and can use their corresponding actions in active time battles.
- Players guide Elisabeth and Marcus through the enchanted world of The Huntsman: Winter’s Curse, outwitting foes and directing the narrative through choose-your-own-adventure style decisions. As the story progresses, the party will sometimes be joined by a third member, including fellow humans, dwarves and supernatural beings.
