Mojang’s Scrolls to Launch in Late November
Mojang's strategy card game, Scrolls, is finally going to be release in late November.
According to TouchArcade, Mojang's Chief Word Officer Owen Hill has announced that Scrolls is ready to launch soon. He said, "The guesstimate is late November, but we're not going to release it until it's ready, if you know what I mean."
The title was involved in a trademark dispute with Bethesda Softworks, the company behind the Elder Scrolls games. It was Bethesda's belief that the title "Scrolls" infringed upon their Elder Scrolls trademark. Besides the slight similarity in name, Scrolls is very different from the open-world, role-paying game series from Bethesda, mainly in that it is a card game that's fought on a hexagonal battlefield in strategy game-like fashion.
Scrolls will be released on PC, Mac, iOS and Android tablets at the same time, but phone versions of the game will be released at a later date. It will be free-to-play on iOS, but will be limited in content until you unlock the full game with a $5 in-app purchase. If you buy it on Steam, you'll get access to the iPad version right off the bat.
Even after its release, Mojang will continue to develop for the title and update it with more cards, unites and features.
