Duelyst is a tactical turn-based strategy game, focused on squad-based combat and fast-paced multiplayer action. Dropping the extraneous features of resource management or experience grinding, the game gets to the heart of competitive strategy combat.


Customizable Battle Squad: Over 100 battle units and spells are at your disposal, and interact in different ways, making squads and battles a constantly changing dynamic.

Skill-Based Tactical Combat: A focus is placed on unit positioning, understanding and anticipating your opponent, and maintaining board control.

Short Sessions: Game sessions are designed to be played in under a half hour, eliminating the grind or drag of long sessions.

Online Multiplayer: Match against equally ranked players any time in Ranked or Draft mode. With a focus on competitive play, you can prove your rank on several tiers.
