Exode Recently Gave Us a Glimpse at the Soon to be Released Epic Game Cards.
At first glance the character illustrations put us into a futuristic sci-fi environment, exactly where you're supposed be, 2325 to be exact!
The card frames are reminiscent of a flash drive, or some sort of digital memory drive used to save player data, definitely looks both futuristic and mechanical.
Exode is a space exploration and colonization game consisting of an initial emergency evacuation scene followed by space colonization game play.
As of May 1st, right on schedule, a free playable Alpha version was made available to anyone with a Hive blockchain account.
At present time only the evacuation scene is playable with colonization on the road map for a future release. In the next few days the game will update to allow only those that have purchased a starter pack from the Official Exode website to play, ending the Free open Alpha.
Crew Personality Traits and Skills
Ok so these Epic cards are looking awesome, but how do they impact game play? We'll have to take a look at this comprehensive list of traits and get a sense of the nuts and bolts behind each of the crew.
The complete list of personality traits is as follows:
SOCIAL TACTICAL BEHAVIOR Charisma Awareness Agitation Conversation Courage Discipline Diplomacy Heroism Drug Addiction Empathy Resistant Federal Values Intimidation Orders Investigation Leadership Cover Loyalty Popularity Shooting Morality Social Closure - Open Mindedness Social Exposure - Secret Agenda - - Speed - - Violence
You will also see the results of these statistics in something clearly exposed in game, which are Skills. Skills are more practical in usage. For instance, Skills help you fix an Hyperdrive; personality traits do not. Personality Traits are instead here to trigger some “perks” and bonuses, and determine behavior in many situations.
As you can see there is a vast number of character traits that will influence your individual crew members skills and ability to thrive and contribute effectively in their role. More details regarding traits and skills is currently being documented and refined, so we'll be able to learn more about the game mechanics in the very near future.
