Scrolls, the first game from Minecraft developer Mojang that isn’t Minecraft related has a release date – and you’ll soon be able to take your card-based battles to PC and Mac. It’ll be playable from June 3rd, or just a little under a week – but you’ll have to pay for that privilege.
“We also have a confirmed release date,” says the game’s official site. “Scrolls will hit Open Beta on June 3rd, one week from today. You’ll be able to buy Scrolls for £13/€15/$20, depending on where you live. It will be available for PC and Mac.”
I’ve never been keen on the idea of a paid beta – and one for a niche card-battling turn-based strategy kind of gets my ire up. that said, I’ve recently fallen in love with the frankly incredible Fire Emblem: Awakening on the 3DS and this is looking like it’ll fit nicely in my wheelhouse.
I have to wonder though; would anybody really give a damn about this game if it wasn’t from “the people who brought you Minecraft?”
