What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Master of Wills has just completed the 4 year development of its tabletop cyberpunk classic board game and is now turning its focus towards Master of Wills online. Now the time has come to open up the world of MOW to the PC gamer.

Early Access is important to the Master of Wills game for a variety of important reasons. In order to develop out the features of the game, we rely heavily on community participation and feedback. We have world that has been developed over many years based on the driving force of our Community. In order to accomplish this, we must continue to advance the game while players participate in something stable but with new features that likely will have bugs from time to time as we role them out. However, the game has reached its stable format for the base play which will allow us to keep the gameplay stable.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect the game to stay in Early Access until 2022.”

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

“First, we have a very wide ranging plan of developments to add to the game including a vast campaign / story mode, an expansive "tower" system that we call Battlestage, the ability to add mutations to cards to create variant cards, expanding to 8 Factions and many more additions that require players to participate while we develop out the full system.

It's just like the board game because we developed two Factions to build the initial game but expanded to the planned 8 Factions which included Alphaguard, Razorcorp, Dawnlight, Shadowcell, Cloudecho, Edgehunter, Bloodcrown and Waterborne. The last four will be added over the next year or so.

Our biggest and most long term feature is called the Fringe Wars (or Faction War) in which the entire Community is participating in a seasonal battle to control the City of Novus with real time map updates for sector control. This is a very complex and incredible system that will take us some time to develop.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Master of Wills is currently ready for player vs player competitions, single player mode, training and AI play, profile management, match history including watching previous matches, profile customization, missions/achievements, friend chat, syndicate (team) creation, league play and deck building with other card management options. It is stable and ready for a great experience.”

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

“Additional in-game purchases will be available. The game is free to play.”

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

“The Community is the most important part of Master of Wills. They have been the driving force behind many of the advances and additions we've made to the game. In our Discord, we listen to the comments and discuss future plans directly with the Community and implement ideas that make sense. Joining our Discord channel is the quickest way to get your ideas heard and developed. We will also be participating in the Steam community features as well to bring the Community together here.”

About This Game

Master of Wills is a strategy card game that is easy to learn but difficult to master. Set in a beautiful cyberpunk world, opposing players choose which Faction best suits their play-style. MOW doesn’t rely solely on your Faction cards but also on your ability to manipulate the movements of the shared Community cards resulting in an epic “Tug of War”.

The board is set with three rows on each side (Recruits, Loyalists, and Allies) and a neutral area in the middle. Your objective is to move as many Community cards to your side by the end of the game while using Faction cards in your hand to manipulate and influence the cards, game and your opponent. The points earned for each player on their side will determine who is the Master of Wills. Battle the AI, play the single player campaign or challenge other players in PvP arenas.

Collect over 250 cards across 4 Factions. Craft Faction card decks to create the ultimate combos and crush your opponents. With an easy to use deck crafting system players can create a wide variety of deck strategies. Customize your community cards as you unlock artwork to give your Faction even more personality.

Daily missions keep the game play fresh encouraging different strategies to complete missions for rewards. Players can take their journey into the MOW universe even further by teaming up with friends and allies to form a Syndicate. Work together to earn extra rewards.

Explore the story of MOW through each Faction and Community card. Uncover the lore that ties the cards and characters to the larger game universe we have created. The four core Factions that are available to choose from are Alphaguard, Razorcorp, Dawnlight, and Shadowcell with more to come in the future.

Battle your way to the top of ranked play each season to earn rewards. Utilize match statistics to evaluate your game play and learn to maximize your play styles.
