'Golem Gates' Comes To Xbox One, PS4, And Switch In April

Golem Gates blends elements of real-time strategy, multiplayer online battle arena, and card battle.

Powered by the Unreal Engine 4 and combined with the creative art of Marvel and Transformer franchise alumni, Josh Nizzi, Golem Gates is sure to deliver hours of intense combat and joy for fans of RTS and Card Battle genres in a single one-time purchase. A changeup from traditional RTS games, Golem Gates allows players more versatility by allowing them to use their Glyphs anywhere they have map vision created by their existing forces.

In Golem Gates, players will collect spell cards (called Glyphs) and strategically weave them into a deck as they prepare for battle. Battles are fast-paced and highly tactical with streamlined resource management to keep players focused on the action.

Indie publisher Digerati is pleased to confirm that Laser Guided Games' action-strategy card-game hybrid, Golem Gates, is coming to Xbox One (and as a full 4K gaming experience on Xbox One X), PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch in April.

"We know strategy games have historically been thought of as more of a PC thing, but we think console players will be delighted by the changes Golem Gates has made to the formula that make it feel right at home played on a couch with a gamepad, or on the go on Switch.” said Digerati Director Nick Alfieri.

“Having worked on it for the past four years, Golem Gates has been a labor of love,” said the game’s creator, Matt Oelfke. “Golem Gates has been a blast on Steam and we’re thrilled console players will also have the chance to experience this unique strategy game.”

The brainchild of four individuals from two companies with experience developing such triple A titles as Gears of War, Civilization, Unreal Tournament and Red Faction combined with the power of Unreal Engine 4, Golem Gates is sure to deliver hours of intense combat and joy to fans of RTS, MOBA, or card battle genres.

Features

  • Dynamic Diversity: Create your own unique battle plan to counter your opponents with nearly 100 collectible card game inspired Glyphs, including units, buildings, traps, buffs, debuffs and techs, that provide nearly limitless strategy options.
  • Multiple Modes: Experience the evolving story of Golem Gates’ single-player campaign and take the fight online with friends in cooperative and survival-based modes.
  • May the RNG Gods Smile Upon You: Randomized Glyph drawing puts a slightly different spin on every battle by eliminating monotonous build sequences, while rewarding deck building mastery and strategic planning chops in equal measure.
  • Streamlined Strategy: Build and enhance your forces with Glyphs; no production or research buildings are needed. Capture resources in King of the Hill style skirmishes without dedicated gathering units and keep your focus where it belongs — on the battle.
  • Fight Where You Have Sight: Glyphs can be played almost anywhere you have an existing presence. Add more forces to a battle to turn the tide, transform a scouting party into an army, place emergency defenses to respond to the enemy or hide an outpost in a direction the enemy doesn't expect. The choices are yours but beware: the enemy will do the same and with the right Glyph, your forces can be destroyed as quickly as they were created.

Golem Gates is currently available on PC (Steam).
