CHRONICLE: RUNESCAPE LEGENDS LAUNCHES TODAY ON STEAM

Cambridge, UK - May 26, 2016 – Jagex Games Studio today announced that Chronicle: RuneScape Legends is now available on Steam for PC, bringing with it a new action-packed generation of online strategy card games.

A unique twist on the genre, Chronicle combines tactical PvE with strategic PvP gameplay, to see players fighting against their own cards as well as their opponents, and crafting adventures in a quest for supremacy over their rivals.

Having spent the last six months in beta, Chronicle’s full Steam launch brings with it new ranked sessions (the first of which is now live until June 30), more than 400 cards, support for seven languages1-, over 40 Steam Achievements, Steam Trading Cards, and dozens of additional enhancements for the game’s full launch.

Current players can also continue to enjoy their Chronicle adventure directly through the game’s client. Crucially, there is no progress wipe for open beta participants.

CHRONICLE: RUNESCAPE LEGENDS Steam Launch Features:
  • Unique New Generation Card Game – The cards are both the greatest weapon and weakness, as players battle their own decks and try to defeat their rival standing to the other side of the Chronicle.
  • Master Five Legends – Learn the unique tactics and strategies of each Legend and strive for victory. A sixth Legend, the slayer master Morvran, will join existing characters this summer.
  • Multiple Modes – Draft to victory in Dungeoneering Mode and quest for coins, gem shards and platinum. Learn the ropes in Solo Play and Casual Modes; and play against friends; or fight to the top in the competitive Ranked Mode.
  • Skilling and Customization – Players can customize their account by unlocking new titles and badges as they level up in-game skills, or purchase new card backs.
“From prototyping Chronicle as a paper-based card game two years ago, to iterating its digital form, today’s launch on Steam for PC marks the biggest milestone to date,” said James Sweatman, lead designer, Chronicle: RuneScape Legends. Chronicle delivers a step-change in traditional CCG gameplay, where almost every predictable card game mechanic has been thrown out the window. We are eager to see players develop and master new tactics and strategies for supremacy.”

“The open beta proved to be supremely useful, with players providing invaluable feedback and insight as to how we could make Chronicle the best it could possibly be for launch. We’re looking forward to the race to the top as the ranked leagues unfold, and we’re already working on development plans to bring the game to iOS and Android platforms next!”
