What is Hex

Hex is the best of both worlds. A TCG and an RPG, expertly combined!

  • Please note, both the MMO and the RPG sides of the game are still a work in progress. The first part of the RPG/PvE side was the Frost Ring arena and was released early in 2015. The core PvE update is scheduled for late January to early February 2016.

It's a TCG

Hex: Shards of Fate started life under Cryptozoic, and soon moved to Hex Entertainment.

Cryptozoic is a leading TCG publisher with years of experience building a real, fully featured, and balanced TCG (World of Warcraft TCG). HEX has the same attention to detail and offers the finest digital TCG experience available. You’ll get 200 cards upon account creation, which are are used to create all of your preconstructed starting PvE and PvP decks and are easy to expand on and merely possessing the cards required to build it will unlock the accompanying Starter Trials. In addition to the 300 cards available via the PVE campaign, the Frost Ring Arena and the Wheels of Fate, there are over 350 cards to use in Set 1 which you can get rewarded with in tournaments, win in PvE or find in Booster Packs. As of now, the game consists of 6 sets: Shards of Fate (Set 1), Shattered Destiny (Set 2), Armies of Myth (Set 3), Primal Dawn (Set 4), Herofall (Set 5) and Scars of War (Set 6). The total sum of unique PvP cards (Alternate Art versions excluded) is 1640.

Hex: Shards of Fate is developed by HexEntertainment.

In October 2013, publishing rights to the NA market were held by HexEntertainment, EU by Gameforge, South America by LevelUp and Asia by Perfect World.

From April 2016 to February 20th 2017, Gameforge became the publisher of Hex: Shards of Fate in the NA, EU and SA regions.

As of February 20th 2017, Hex Entertainment reacquired the publishing rights from Gameforge for the NA, EU and SA regions.

Digital Innovations

HEX can do things a paper TCG can only dream of doing.

  • Socket gems in cards to give them additional powers.
  • Use card powers to transform them into different cards mid-match.
  • Interactions with both yours and your opponent's decks are subject to the system and thus impossible to cheat.
  • Keep track of permanent changes in all zones - all effects are permanent, unless stated otherwise.
  • Unlock extended art versions of your card with stardust.
  • Change the sleeve of your deck with just a click of a button.
  • Deck statistics give you instant feedback about your deck’s composition, its record, and more.

Buy, Sell or Trade

Hex is a full TCG meaning you can trade your cards and other account items as you wish. The cards that you have are yours, meaning you may use them, sell them in-game for Platinum or Gold, or even sell them in a third party market for real money. [Note: Buying/Selling of Account(s), Platinum and Gold outside the game for real money is prohibited under the ToS. See: here for more details.]

When it comes to selling, buying and trading, the game comes with a built in Auction House for easy and safe sales and purchases. Alternatively players can use the C.O.D. (Cash on Delivery) function to sell directly. Or if they wish they can just attach a card to a mail and send it as they please!

Tournaments

A key part of a TCG is the organized play / tournaments, and we are happy to say Hex is no different. Players are able to take part in built in tournaments that cater for the casual players and hardcore players alike.

Quoted from HexEnt "make sure that a player can log in at any time and participate in a tournament, and make the tournaments count for something bigger."

Tournaments in Hex cater for all types of players. The competitive Esport players can take part in ESL leagues and the HexInvitational for a grand prize of $100k, casual TCG players who enjoy tournaments as a way to build their card collection and even newbies that are just starting out.
