Desert Owl Games will soon release The Huntsman: Winter’s Curse, an episodic RPG with collectible card game elements inspired by Universal Pictures’ legendary saga. The game will debut on Windows and Mac, with a PlayStation 4 release to follow later in 2016.
Set in a surreal animated world, The Hunstman: Winter’s Curse will deliver dynamic storytelling involving many of the characters from Snow White and the Huntsman and its upcoming prequel, The Huntsman: Winter’s War, in theaters April 22, 2016. As the plot unfolds, players will confront dangerous creatures and powerful sorcerers, battle evil men and even spar with Eric, the most elite Huntsman.
Combat in The Hunstman: Winter’s Curse revolves around collectible equipment cards, which provide different options in combat. At the start of every battle, characters draw random equipment cards and can use their corresponding actions in active time battles.
The story begins with the game’s protagonist, Elisabeth, vowing to her dying father to locate and reunite with her long-lost brothers.
At the start of her journey, she partners with a young man with mysterious magical powers named Marcus, who likewise wants to find Elisabeth’s siblings, but his motives are less than pure.
Players guide Elisabeth and Marcus through the enchanted world of The Huntsman: Winter’s Curse, outwitting foes and directing the narrative through choose-your-own-adventure style decisions. As the story progresses, the party will sometimes be joined by a third member, including fellow humans, dwarves and supernatural beings.
The first episode, or book, of The Huntsman: Winter’s Curse will be free-to-play. Subsequent books, which continue the main story and offer exciting side quests, will be available for purchase.
