In Bloodline: Heroes of Lithas, players establish a legacy in a fantasy world where your offspring inherit the abilities that came before them. The player’s goal in the game is to become the leader of the City of Light, the High Guardian, in the world of Lithas. This is achieved by expanding your influence over various parts of the city with the help of your children and the children of your champions.
Lithas is filled with unique creatures and races that you can influence to be your champions and allies as they marry and grow through the generations. Developer and publisher Goat Games has revealed that there will be Dragonborn, Dark Elves, and Lycans, but it looks like there will be other races as well, like your standard human. You can take an exclusive look at the cinematic trailer for Bloodline below.
It is currently unclear how the game works, but it is described as a card-based RPG. There will be opportunities to resolve conflicts diplomatically, but you’ll often have to fight, which is where the champions you’ve gathered come into play. Your most powerful champions can marry to have children that share their parents’ abilities. This is how you will acquire your most powerful champions, instead of collecting them from a loot box.
Bloodline: Heroes of Lithas is published by the Chinese publisher Goat Games, which created the hit mobile game War and Magic. Bloodline will be available as a free mobile title on June 23 for iOS and Android, but you can pre-register for the game here.
This won’t be the only experience this year with gameplay based on skills that are passed down between generations. You can read GameSpot’s Rogue Legacy II review by following the link.
