Star Crusade: War for the Expanse looks to be another great collectible card game

If you’re a fan of collectible card games, like the always popular Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, TouchArcade has recently pointed out a great looking title that’s set to arrive on the App Store soon.

In Star Crusade: War for the Expanse, gamers can build a deck with anywhere from 25 to 40 different cards. All total, there will be more than 350 different cards to play.

Here’s a quick synopsis of the game’s plot:

The last unclaimed stargate has opened, plunging the galaxy into war. Will you choose the Shan’Ti, who shape genetics into living weapons, the insidious Consortium, focusing on subterfuge and mercenary armies, the rigid, cold order of the cybernetically augmented Hierarchy, the psychically powerful Annunaki and their zealous followers, the battle-hardened Terrans with their massive weapons of war or the brutal, adaptive Hajir-Gog, whose endless tide represents a scourge to the galactic civilization?

Currently, the game sports single-player matches along with a ranked mode and draft mode. Future plans call for the addition of a four-player co-op mode with teams of two players each. Another interesting planned feature is a deck sharing mode to see how other gamers are competing.

Here’s a trailer for the game. Click here if you can’t see it.

If you’re interested in trying the game out, you can download an early access copy on your PC via Steam now. The free-to-play game should arrive on the iPad sometime this spring and to the iPhone after that.
