Abrakam SA and Versus Evil are currently running a free weekend on Steam for their digital card game Faeria.
The free weekend extends until the 17th, and the base game and all expansion packs are heavily discounted. Some time back Faeria abandoned its more traditional free-to-play model in favor of a “buy and done” model where new cards are unlocked through play instead of spending real money to buy booster packs, with regular premium expansions that add more cards to unlock. You can check out a trailer above.
Here’s a rundown of the game:
With its unique living board, Faeria will challenge you with truly strategic card battles. Craft your deck, shape the battlefield, and fight for victory!
