Duelyst, a turn-based strategy game developed by Counterplay Games, officially kicks off open beta as of today. A competitive game featuring tactical combat, squad building and more, Duelyst offers players the choice of six factions — each with their own minions, positioning capabilities and play styles — to use in 1v1 matches against online opponents.

Originally funded on Kickstarter, Duelyst is the creation of a team of veteran game developers; including artists Glaube Kotaki (Rogue Legacy) and Chrisophe Ha (World of Warcraft, Diablo III, Overwatch) as well as Creative Director and Producer Keith Lee (Diablo III, Rachet & Clank).

In addition to the launch of open beta, Counterplay Games has also announced a launch window of “Early 2016” for the game.

  1. I have been playing this since the alpha stages and I must say this is one of the best (if not the best) turn based multiplayer strategy game out there. I generally like turn based games and TCG-s, and Duelyst just takes the cake.

    The game develops at a very high pace. It has changed a lot in the past couple of months, therefore it will probably get even better very soon ^-^

    Can’t wait for the steam release. :3

  2. This is a good turn based strategy game, not sure what everyone else is talking about… Probably aren’t smart enough to get the tutorial done.

    • I completely agree with you,it is a perfect combo of turn base strategy and card game.And its not lucky reliant like hearthstone.And the graphics are really nice,the concept art is really nice so i dont know why bad comments,only its a bit boring from time to time .

  3. merry shutdown, nokia’s snake is way better than this crap…. it’s almost 2016 you know ppl? why you torture your c r a p p y a s s to develop such idiotism from 1978
