Scrolls Open Beta Launches
Starting today, you can dive into Mojang's newest game Scrolls. The open beta version of the collectible card strategy game is on sale for £13/€15/$20.
Yes, you're buying a beta version. Mojang is rolling out Scrolls in a manner similar to Minecraft. Players will be able to purchase the beta at a price lower than the full version. However, they'll get all future updates for the game for free. It's a way of rewarding players willing to help play-test the title.
While the Scrolls beta isn't feature-complete, it still has a fair amount of content. Players will be able to learn the ropes of the game's strategy through 25 trials against A.I. enemies. They can also challenge both A.I. and human opponents to head-to-head matches. The PvP matches are available in both ranked and unranked format.
Through these battles, players will earn gold. They can then use them at the store to buy new scrolls for your arsenal, pre-constructed decks or avatars. Some items can be purchased using shards, a secondary currency that can be bought with real-world money. However, Mojang stresses that you don't need to buy shards to be competitive in the game. Players can also avoid spending gold or shards altogether by swapping scrolls with friends.
You can purchase Scrolls here. If you already bought Minecraft, you'll be able to use the same account you set up for that transaction.
