KeyForge: Age of Ascension Announced by Fantasy Flight Games

Feb 18, 2019

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce Age of Ascension, the second set of KeyForge—now available for pre-order, releasing in the second quarter of 2019!

In 2018, legendary designer Richard Garfield introduced the world to KeyForge—a game where every deck is as unique as the player who wields it, coming pre-built and ready-to-play. Wits and tactical prowess win the day in a fast-paced game of cosmic competition where death is temporary, but glory is forever.

Along with this groundbreaking design came a lush, endlessly diverse world to call home. The Crucible, an artificial planet filled with secrets known only to the Architects, acts as the perfect setting for the world’s first Unique Deck Game, as the pieces of countless worlds gather to change the landscape every day to create something new and incredible. Now, you are invited to journey deeper into Crucible as your quest to unlock the power of this planet and ascend to a new plane continues.

Become a new Archon in Age of Ascension! As a new set of KeyForgeAge of Ascension mixes up the cardpool with 204 brand-new cards, joining 166 cards first introduced in Call of the Archons to create an entirely new pool of 370 cards and billions upon billions more Unique Decks for you to discover, learn, and master.

Importantly, Age of Ascension is a companion to Call of the Archons, not a replacement or a sequel! You don’t need to start with Call of the Archons in order to reach Age of Ascension, and you don’t need to switch to Age of Ascension Archon Decks in order to remain competitive. Archon Decks from each set are equally matched against one another, which makes Age of Ascension an invitation to embrace even more of the spirit of exploration and discovery that makes KeyForge unique.

 

The Archons Arise in KeyForge from Fantasy Flight Games

Nov 17, 2018

From the mind of Richard Garfield comes KeyForge, the world’s first Unique Deck Game!

On the planet of the Crucible, you will step into the role of a mighty Archon, who must lead a diverse team assembled from the creatures, technologies, artifacts, and abilities of the Crucible’s Houses as you race to gather precious Æmber that will unlock the planet’s hidden Vaults. Only one can claim the full knowledge and power of this planet. Do you have what it takes?

The first set for KeyForgeCall of the Archons, is on sale now at your local retailer or online through Fantasy Flight Games! Once you have your set, register your Archon Decks using the KeyForge Master Vault at KeyForgeGame.com! (Companion app is now available on Google Play and coming soon to the App Store.)

What sets KeyForge apart?

KeyForge is the first Unique Deck Game, meaning that every Archon Deck is one-of-a kind—unlike any other deck in existence. With every deck presenting its own Archon and distinct combination of cards, every game is a new adventure of discovery and exploration. Every deck is made up of 36 cards, but it’s not the cards that make your deck special, but the interactions between those cards—strategies and tactics which can only be found in your deck. You must discover the most powerful synergies within your Archon Deck in order to master it and challenge yourself to make tough tactical decisions in every game. With over 104 quadrillion possible decks, every player has the chance to become the best in the world at playing their decks and discovering the strength within.

KeyForge: Call of the Archons Announced by Fantasy Flight Games

Aug 12, 2018

Fantasy Flight Games is thrilled to announce that you will soon be able to enter the wondrous world of the Crucible with the KeyForge: Call of the Archons Starter Set and Archon Decks.

From the imagination of legendary game designer Richard Garfield comes a game unlike anything the world has ever seen—a game where every deck is as unique as the person who wields it and no two battles will ever be the same. This is KeyForge, where deckbuilding and boosters are a thing of the past, where you can carve a path of discovery with every deck, where you can throw yourself into the game with the force of a wild wormhole and embrace the thrill of a tactical battle where wits will win the day!

Along with this new breed of game comes a new world: the Crucible, an artificial world built from the pieces of countless planets across the stars. Here, anything is possible. This world was built for the Archons, god-like beings who, for all their power, know little about their own origins. The Archons clash in constant struggles, leading motley companies of various factions as they seek to find and unlock the planet’s hidden Vaults to gain ultimate knowledge and power.

KeyForge: Call of the Archons is the world’s first Unique Deck Game. Every single Archon Deck that you’ll use to play is truly unique and one-of-a kind, with its own Archon and its own mixture of cards in the deck. If you pick up an Archon Deck, you know that you’re the only person in existence with access to this exact deck and its distinct combination of cards. In fact, in just the first set of KeyForge, Call of the Archons, there are more than 104,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 possible decks!

Every Archon Deck contains a full play experience with a deck that cannot be altered, meaning it’s ready to play right out of the box. Not only does this remove the need for deckbuilding or boosters, it also creates a new form of gameplay with innovative mechanics that challenges you to use every card in your deck to find the strongest and most cunning combinations. It is not the cards themselves that are powerful, but rather the interactions between them—interactions that can only be found in your deck. Your ability to make tough tactical decisions will determine your success as you and your opponent trade blows in clashes that can shift in an instant!
