Good Shepherd Entertainment and indie developer Shiny Shoe have kicked off the closed beta of Monster Train, the upcoming strategic roguelike deck-building game set on a train to Hell.
Players can register at www.TheMonsterTrain.com for a chance at access to the beta, which will run until March 19 and features both solo and multiplayer game modes.
Hell has frozen over, and it’s up to you to protect the last Pyre from the forces of Heaven and make Hell burn once more. Monster Train adds an extra strategic element to roguelike deck-builders with three vertical play fields that must be defended at a time. Build a deck of spells and minions from over 200 cards, and position your champions on each level to protect the train and your Pyre from invaders. With five clans to combine and fight for, challenging enemies to balance your deck against, and multiple routes to take through Hell, no playthrough is ever the same.
Monster Train’s unique time-based online multiplayer mode “Hell Rush” lets up to eight players compete against one another in time-based challenges for an exciting experience under intense pressure. Create your own custom challenges and share them with the world to see who can top the leaderboards.
Monster Train is expected to officially launch on PC in Q2 2020.
