More On: Golem Gates

Digerati has announced that their action-strategy card battling game Golem Gates will be launching on May 28th for the PS4, and then on May 31stfor the Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. Golem Gates will allow players to pit their conjured armies against their enemies and wield the nanite-infused power of The Ash. You can customize your deck from over one hundred cards known as Glyphs and since the cards you draw will be randomized while playing, this means you'll have to adept on the fly to form some sort of strategy to come out on top. While I'm always a sucker for card-based gameplay, I'm not that great at strategy-based games so I'll be interested to see how Golem Gates turns out.

Release dates confirmed for PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch

16 May 2019 – Indie publisher Digerati is delighted to announce that release dates have now been confirmed for the arrival on consoles of Golem Gates. The acclaimed action-strategy card-game hybrid will launch on PlayStation 4 on May 28th/29th (NA/EU respectively), then on Xbox One (and as a full 4K gaming experience on Xbox One X) and Nintendo Switch on May 31st.

Developed by Laser Guided Games, Golem Gates is a post-apocalyptic sci-fi blend of action-strategy and card battler, pitting your conjured armies against otherworldly forces. An ancient threat surges from the Golem Gates, and only the Harbinger stands guard. Wielding the nanite-infused power of The Ash, you must protect a world ravaged by ancient wars. Choose from 100 cards (known as Glyphs) and unleash diverse units, buildings, buffs, and more in tactical combat across single player, co-op, and online multiplayer. 


Randomized drawing and quick unit placement means you’ll have to adapt on the fly as you formulate your strategy. Add more forces to a battle to turn the tide, transform a scouting party into an army, place emergency defenses to respond to the enemy, or hide an outpost in a direction the enemy doesn't expect. The choices are yours, but beware: the enemy will do the same and with the right Glyph your forces can be destroyed as fast as they were created.
