Petroglyph is working on a game you can play at your computer or away from it. Guardians of Graxia is a strategic game that involves using guardians to try and acquire land on the floating continents of the planet Graxia with their armies. At the same time, you also will have a number of mysteries about the planet and its inhabitants that can only be solved by choosing a guardian and exploring the world.
Both versions of Guardians of Graxia will be released in Summer 2010, but each has its own unique properties. The board game is played using cards, figurines and map tiles, and there will be regular and deluxe versions released. Petroglyph hasn’t announced what bonuses will come with the deluxe version. Both versions of the board game will come with 6 guardian figures and 32 ownership banners for each side. Also, the press release states that the price for the regular edition will be $60, and the deluxe will be $70.
It doesn’t sound like the PC version of Guardians of Graxia will be using any virtual figurines or map tiles, but there will be cards. Over 240 cards, to be precise. The cards will be used to represent units and spells that your chosen guardian will use to control an army. It will have both single and multiplayer modes and be available only as a download. There’s no news about a price for this version of the game yet.
