Skylanders Battlecast is a brand new game in the Skylanders franchise

Free-to-play mobile ‘adventure’

Activision has announced a new Skylanders game called Battlecast, and it’s a free-to-play mobile card game. I’m guessing they want to get in on that sweet Hearthstone money (which funnily enough, is part of the same wallet), as the mobile card market has been steadily increasing in the past few years or so.

The publisher promises both online PVP and a single-player campaign, and physical card packs will be sold at retail. It’s crazy how much Skylanders has grown since its noble beginnings as a Spyro spinoff in 2011. It will drop later this year on iOS and Android.
