If you’re a fan of the recent trend of putting collectible card mechanics to work in other game genres, then you’ll be happy to hear about one of NEXON’s upcoming games — Astellia. An MMORPG at its core, Astellia requires players to collect cards of varying rarity which can be used as summoned companions.

The game is based on Unreal Engine 3 and is being developed with a console-game style combat system. It features large-scale battles and allows players to summon up to two monsters using the card system during a fight.

While NEXON hasn’t declared a monetization style yet, we are guessing that it will be free-to-play. That said… not all things are guaranteed.

    I will give it a try when it comes out but its from Nexon so you been warned. Oh the days when Mabinogi used to be good. I used to love playing Mabinogi, oh wait they got to make the goddess quests so hard no one can beat them. The goddess quests in mabinogi start off easy then it becomes to hard which ruins it for me. Don’t get me started on the overpriced stuff players sell.
