There's a big surprise for the upcoming card game from Abrakam Entertainment and Richard Garfield! The Roguebook release date has been changed, and no, it hasn't been delayed — it's one week earlier.
Roguebook is a strategy and deckbuilding game where you've been trapped within the Book of Lore in the mystical land of Faeria. The only way to escape is to fight your way out using combat and enchanted cards. The product of a successful Kickstarter, this upcoming game will be coming out a little earlier than expected — and it also has a new trailer showing off some gameplay.
Roguebook certainly looks like an interesting game, although the involvement of Richard Garfield may make some people worry. The last game he was involved with was Valve's Artifact and that game didn't do all that well; ultimately, Valve announced an end to Artifact development earlier this year.
That said, Garfield was also instrumental in designing Magic: The Gathering, a collectible card game that is still going strong today and is arguably more popular than ever. Roguebook certainly has some interesting gameplay, although we'll have to wait until release to see if it can live up to our expectations. Thankfully, we won't have to wait as long as we originally expected.
When is the Roguebook Release Date?
The Roguebook release date is now June 17, 2021, according to a press release. Contrary to how things have been going over the last year, this is a rare event — this game is now being released one week earlier than its original launch date on June 24th.
This is looking like it's going to be a pretty interesting card game, all the more so with someone like Richard Garfield at the helm. If this seems like your kind of jam, you can pre-purchase Roguebook for PC and consoles via its official website starting at $24.99 or your regional equivalent.
