Mirror, Mirror on the wall… someone is releasing a game based on The Huntsman: Winter’s War to surprise us all…
Desert Owl Games has teamed up with Universal Pictures and will release The Hunstman: Winter’s Curse for the PC on April 20. The Hunstman: Winter’s Curse is a card-based RPG and players will collect equipment cards to take into battle against the game’s many beasts and monsters. Featuring graphics styled like a storybook, the game will be offered as a free download through Steam, though the developer plans to release additional episodes to further expand the story:
The story begins with the game’s protagonist, Elisabeth, vowing to her dying father to locate and reunite with her long-lost brothers. At the start of her journey, she partners with a young man with mysterious magical powers named Marcus, who likewise wants to find Elisabeth’s siblings, but his motives are less than pure.
Players guide Elisabeth and Marcus through the enchanted world of The Huntsman: Winter’s Curse, outwitting foes and directing the narrative through choose-your-own-adventure style decisions. As the story progresses, the party will sometimes be joined by a third member, including fellow humans, dwarves and supernatural beings.
The Hunstman: Winter’s Curse will also be available for the PS4 later this year. And don’t forget, The Huntsman: Winter’s War, starring Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron, and Emily Blunt, will open in theaters next Friday, April 22.
