“Counterplay Games brought together creative minds from around the video
game industry to create our skill-based collectible tactics game
DUELYST,” said Keith Lee, CEO and co-founder of Counterplay Games. “Our
goal for DUELYST is to be compelling at the highest levels of play while
remaining accessible to brand new players. Part of that strategy is to
offer gamers short bursts of play along a smooth skill-curve so that
players can invest in the long term metagame for many years to come.”

With the official launch of DUELYST also comes the release of the game’s
first opening cinematic. In the short-film, players will get a chance to
