Minion Masters Goes Free-to-Play Ahead of Full Release

BetaDwarf has just announced that their card game/MOBA/tower defense hybrid Minion Masters is now free-to-play.

Set in the same universe as their popular Forced games, Minion Masters sees players send waves of troops against each other in fast-paced 1v1 or 2v2 battles as they try to destroy the opposing player’s Master.

The game entered Early Access around 2 years ago, and now that its coming close to its full release in early 2019, BetaDwarf is transitioning it to a free-to-play model. You can find an old trailer for the game above.

Here’s a rundown of the game:

Engage in epic 1v1 or 2v2 battles, in this fast-paced strategic minion brawler that’s easy to pick-up but hard to master.
In Minion Masters there are many different Masters with unique hero abilities and you collect awesome minions like fierce demons, cute creatures, devastating spells and much more.
Utilize your minions to destroy the enemy Master! When a minion has been summoned they can no longer be controlled, so place them wisely to win!
