The gods will not suffer bad art.
Space Cowboys, publishers of last year’s spectacular Splendor, have another beauty in the works. Elysium is promised for February 20 in Europe and is expected sometime in the next two months to arrive in the U.S. (via Asmodee). And as this trailer and artwork shows, this game is going to be a visual knockout.
In Elysium, you play one of eight demigods trying to earn a place on Mount Olympus. You do this by recruiting and then assisting allies in quests. When they do great deeds it shines a light on you and boosts your legend. Only one demigod will earn entry at the top of Mount Olympus and that’s gonna be me. But, at least you can look at the pretty cards.
Each of the eight gods (Hades, Athena, Hermes, Poseidon, Ares, Zeus, Hephaestus, and Apollo)
There are eight gods in the game, each with its own set of cards with art from a different artist. That’s eight artists all contributing to one game. Pretty unheard of! Check out the gallery below to see some of the incredible art. And let’s hope Elysium’s gameplay can live up to its visuals.
