Summoner Wars Second Edition Includes Online Play and Free Demo

Plaid Hat Games is returning to an old favorite and giving it a fresh makeover with Summoner Wars Second Edition, but that would honestly be selling it short. The Second Edition will include vibrant new artwork by Martin Abel and Madison Johnson, as well as the return of the first game's beloved factions and completely new factions added to the mix. The rules have further been refined too, but the best part is that Summoner Wars Second Edition can also be played online using the new browser-based app, and there's even a free demo to try it out, which you can find here.

If you become a subscriber you can access the beta once it goes live after the pre-order period, and there are some future goals that can unlock depending on how many subscribers hop on board. The online version is identical to the physical game, and includes all factions from the master set, and will continually be updated as new factions release, including a rotating free faction pack of the month.

Summoner Wars is a two-player game that has players taking on the guise of a powerful summoner, and each faction features a different approach and unique abilities and skills to cut down your opponent with. You'll find a faction that more suits your playstyle, but regardless of who you choose you'll need to focus on tactical strategies to ensure you claim victory.
