HEX: Shards of Fate Deals Out Public Beta
Gameforge and HEX Entertainment are opening up their MMO/TCG genre blend to a much bigger audience. The free-to-play game has moved to a public beta and all you have to do to play is sign up. Currently, the PvP content is already available as are a number of AI opponent battles, but the PvE portion of the title (the part I have been the most curious about myself) is still a bit of a mystery and is not included.
HEX currently offers a roster of 350 different cards and will soon be adding a new set that will bring the total to over 500 cards.
Cory Jones, Head of Development and CEO of HEX Entertainment had this to say when the public beta announcement was released:
“Due to high demand and the need for further testing by increasing player population on our servers, we felt the easiest way to accommodate this is by removing the restriction of having to have a beta key. This testing phase is also very important for us in the evolution of HEX and for our community. Together with Gameforge we’d also like to take the chance to thank all of the players who participated in closed beta. We really look forward to continue creating an even better gaming experience with all of our players.”
The public beta also adds an extensive tutorial (something VERY noticeably missing when I first accessed the game after backing HEX's Kickstarter) and a vast array of UI improvements.
If you want to check out HEX, simply head on over to the official site, sign up, and get started!

Oh and this is for the 8 player tournaments, they also do 128 player tournaments. No rewards for if you don't win 1 battle. 20*64 is 1280, there's 1 every 2 hours. That's £1280 every 2 hours for nothing. Seriously, it's fked up. Normally MMOTCG are Pay to accelerator spend maybe £5~£10 per month to get a few extra new cards. Even more if you're willing. But never pay to play. Even the worst mmotcg out there at-least have some free content that you can farm to get the same effects of pay to play.
Saying all this though, it is in beta, so it might change. (Beta is no excuse though, infinity wars beta and hearthstone were no where near this bad.)
Been looking forward to this little TCG gem to go into beta.
