June 25, 2021 – The publisher behind the upcoming He-Man and the Masters of the Universe Miniatures board game, CMON, dropped a new teaser trailer for the upcoming project via a live stream today, as well as, some additional details via a new design diary.
The secrets of Castle Grayskull and the entire universe are at stake. Masters of the Universe: Clash for Eternia is coming to Kickstarter in September of 2021.
If you are looking for much deeper info into the game than just this epic cinematic, there have also been different design diaries from the creator that document different aspects of the game. As of June 21st they released the 5th. Topics so far include:
The highlights from the latest article delve into the fact that you can have a team play against a “controller” or you can play as cooperative against the game AI.
The term “One-vs-Many” is often used when describing this sort of game. Essentially, it sees one player playing the forces of “the one” (Overlord, Nemesis, or in this case, “Controller”. All synonyms for this sort of role) and all the remaining players working as a team to win the game. This style of game has been around forever but there are some key elements at work in Clash for Eternia that change the usual formula.
The Power System is at its core One-vs-Many, but we designed the Controller side in such a way that it can be fully automated as well. Of course, there is a robustness in the system that can really only be properly utilized by the skilled brain of a Controller Player, but we know that this isn’t always preferable to some. Given that, we developed a full AI System that pilots the Controller side of the conflict, should you want the full Cooperative Experience.
Head on over to CMON to follow along with this exciting board game project!
