Undaunted Raid Teasers
Good day to all you UniVersus fans out there!
Tim Frie, Undaunted Raid lead designer, here again! We’ve already kicked off previews for the set, and that’s super exciting. I love writing these teasers, so I wanted to make sure to get this out ASAP. This story arc is one of the most beloved of the entire show, so we wanted to get it right. There will be more design articles to come during preview season, and those will shed light on the development process and some of the ways we approached themes and cohesive mechanics in the set, but I’ll leave that for later. For now, let’s just get on with the juicy tidbits you all came here for. I present to you some really cool things that will be featured in Undaunted Raid.
Things you can expect to see in Undaunted Raid:
- The Shie Hassaikai.
- 3 NEW Pro Heroes.
- Some new tools for Mill strategy.
- A new playstyle “theme.”
- A transforming character.
- Remember “3 damage matters”?
- 2 new versions of characters with a hand size they have not previously had.
- An asset with a response limited to 3 characters.
- 2 cards with unconventional layouts.
