The additional allies add new flavors, enable interesting new battlefield tactics and significantly increase the strategic depth of the game. Numerous balance updates and bug fixes round up this completely free expansion.
Completely for free, Allegiance is an automatic update for all KARDS players.
With the arrival of Allegiance on December 10, KARDS has entered a completely new era.
These are the highlights of Allegiance:
With new abilities and keywords, the new ally nations let you explore and develop completely new strategies!
The French cards span the entire war effort with units from before the Fall of France through to the Free French Forces. With a strong Resistance theme, the French cards bring a new mechanic designed to disrupt enemy play and to disrupt your opponent’s hand.
The Italian forces are more aggressive as they are designed to seize the initiative by taking the frontline and overwhelming the enemy. Italian units benefit from operating together as they give buffs when played in unison.
