Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We're committed to offering players the best card game we possibly can...and that's hard, and messy, and takes time. Onboarding players gradually helps us make sure that the game you're playing is the one we set out to make, and the feedback we get from our growing player community helps us chart a course for launch.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“A few months. We need to sync up multiple platforms in preparation for launch, and this is the first step in that direction.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Many of Eternal's best PvP features work best with a robust player pool filling up Draft and Ranked queues. While we're in Early Access, some modes will be turned off, some wait times will be longer than normal and matchmaking won't be as refined as it will be once we have a larger playerbase to pair from. We've also got some additional features and polish planned as we get closer release.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We're getting close. Core game features are in place, with a huge launch set ready for you to explore. The cards you collect during Early Access are yours -- we won't be resetting accounts between now and launch, so you can grow your collection with confidence.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

Eternal is Free to Play, and will remain so upon launch. It's likely that there will be some changes to help balance the game economy along the way, but remaining generously Free to Play has always been a core principle of the game.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We constantly monitor community feedback, both in-game and through our social channels, to better understand what's working and what needs some love. So let us know what you think, what you like, and what you don't -- we take player feedback seriously, and use it to guide the evolution of the game.”

“Eternal is the game we all wanted Hearthstone to be, and the experience we all wanted Magic Online to become.”
Numot Gaming

“The Dire Wolf Digital team is a remarkable collection of brilliant minds, and it shows clearly in not just how the game plays, but the very core of what it seems to be aiming for; the rich depth and complexity of Magic coupled with the wide accessibility of the digital CCG, which brought in a new set of mechanics that would be near impossible to accomplish in a physical game.”
The Escapist

“Eternal is looking to take the next step on that developmental ladder, taking inspiration from MtG, Hex and Hearthstone, to create something that blends them all together in a competitive trading card game.”
