Skylanders Battlecast will be released sometime here in 2016, but I was able to get my hands on a couple of different packs for the upcoming game.
First off, I know some of the terms will be confusing as you probably don’t know what all the terminology mean (heck, I have the game, and I still don’t fully know). But I will be recording some gameplay tonight that I should hopefully have up for you in the coming days.
For my early preview, be sure to head to my initial first look at the cards and games.
But anyways… let’s get back to the news!
I was able to get the two different “Battle Packs” which guarantee you 6 cards, and then 16 random cards. The “Booster Packs” on the other hand just offer you 8 random cards. There are no correlation between the image on the front of the pack, and the contents of the pack. It’s purely random.
Remember, each card has a unique code around it that can be scanned in via the app. So posting photos of the cards before you are able to scan them in, could leave you high and dry as someone may scan that card before you can scan it in.
Because of that, my unboxing video required me to place each card in the “trading shield” (included in the Battle Packs) so that no-one could scan my cards as I am waiting to scan them all in until the full release.
Plus since this is brand new to pretty much all of you reading this, I wanted to take time to read all the card descriptions as well.
