Gems of War, the puzzle RPG hybrid game developed by Puzzle Quest creator Infinity Plus 2, is now available as a free download on the Nintendo Switch. There aren’t a lot of free-to-play games on the NS. That’s why I’m glad to see another title enter the collection.
Published by 505 Games, Gems of War is “a unique genre mashup fusing puzzle gaming with RPG and strategy elements, offering an unparalleled battle system in which players match gems on a puzzle board to power spells and match skulls to smite their enemies.”
Gems of War has debuted with “a wealth of content” for players to unlock and explore as they journey through the realms of Krystara and the Underworld, “embarking on quests, conquering kingdoms, and building alliances.”
To keep things exciting, each week will bring new troops and events for players to enjoy, with even more content planned for future updates.
“We’re thrilled to introduce our first free-to-play title on the Nintendo Switch,” said Clive Robert, 505 Games Head of Publishing for Free-to-Play, “Gems of War is perfect for the platform, providing gamers the flexibility to play their way and offers multidimensional gameplay with already hundreds of hours of incredible content to enjoy, with much more to come in future updates. With this first step, we open the opportunity to bring many more free-to-play experiences from our portfolio to the Nintendo Switch, and we can’t wait to share more of what’s to come.”
The Features for Gems of War on Nintendo Switch include:
- Play it Your Way: Seamlessly transition between docked play with Joy-Con controllers or handheld mode utilizing the Nintendo Switch touch screen for gamers on-the-go.
- Build Your Team of Heroes: Enjoy a wealth of free content, with 600+ troops to collect, 600+ Quests and storylines to discover and 250+ Weapons and spells to add to your collection.
- Take on Endless Challenges: Choose from a wide variety of immersive game modes including PvP, minigames, Guild Wars, Live Events and multiple Quests per Kingdom.
- Play With Friends: Team up with others in guilds and join forces in Guild Wars.
- Conquer New Realms: Explore the Krystara and Underworld maps with over 30+ Kingdoms and Factions
“Gems of War has been a perfect extension to the hybrid puzzle RPG gameplay that is signature to the Puzzle Quest franchise, and I know fans (old and new) are going to love playing it on the Switch,” said Steve Fawkner, CEO, and Creative Lead at Infinity Plus 2. “We are proud to be working on such an incredible game, with ever growing content for the player base.”
Gems of War is currently available as a free download from the Nintendo eShop and is also free on PlayStation 4, Steam for PC, Xbox One and for mobile devices on the App Store and Google Play.
