One other week, another excuse to have fun if you happen to’re a YuGiOh Grasp Duel participant! To have fun 10 million downloads throughout all platforms because it’s launch roughly three weeks in the past, gamers who log onto the net card sport will obtain one thousand free gems.
These gems, which can be utilized to craft nearly ten thousand unique cards in-game or for a spread of cosmetics in your account are the primary supply of forex for the title. For gamers trying to bounce in and create their first starter deck, or day one followers hoping to refine their go-to meta deck of choice, these gems are invaluable.
That is simply the most recent in a reasonably beneficiant collection of giveaways and free-promotions in YuGiOh Grasp Duel. Not solely are gems given out in abundance within the first few hours of play time to all duelist making their means by way of the tutorial and solo challenges, however PlayStation Plus subscribers are nonetheless in a position to redeem fifty free card packs to assist them create the deck of their goals.
It is a nice begin for the sport after all, however it’ll need to sustain this momentum if it’s to step out of the shadow of the earlier YuGiOh on-line buying and selling card sport: YuGiOh Duel Hyperlinks.
This title reached over 100 million downloads back in October 2019, roughly three years following its launch. As Grasp Duel steps as much as take the highlight from this predecessor, solely time will inform whether or not it has the identical impression.
It’ll be fascinating to see simply how impactful the cellular launch of Grasp Duel can be to the general progress of the group surrounding this sport. One would assume it’s the proper platform for a sport like this, permitting you to play a couple of video games on the prepare to work or underneath your faculty desk whereas the trainer isn’t wanting.
On the flip facet, I really feel the console group can be a robust hub for YuGiOh gamers sooner or later.
