In terms of gameplay, Clash for Eternia can be best described as a one-versus-many game with a lot of action elements, suitable for a solo experience or up to 5 players. Players may choose to play from a plethora of good or evil heroes, which include Prince Adam, Skeletor, Beast-Man, Teela and others. Each hero has different skills which impact the game in a different way, meaning each of your gameplays will be different and unique.
Clash for Eternia further supports a fully cooperative gameplay experience, which only ensures nigh-endless replayability – players may try different character combinations, strategies and builds! CMON have also announced the addition of two brand new characters – Sy-Klone and Jitsu! The new characters can be acquired during the online campaign (via backing) or separately.
The game will feature various gameplay scenarios, neatly featured in a scenario book. Players will have the opportunity to fulfil specific objectives with various requirements, each providing a different challenge. The solo experience is also enhanced by the addition of special AI action cards that are sure to bring an extra layer of challenge. If all of this seems a little overwhelming to you – worry not! The game includes a detailed rulebook and 5 player aid cards that can assist you in any situation!
