Need more CCG action in your life? Great! You and Ubisoft are on level. Earlier this morning, the publisher finally popped the lid off of Might & Magic Duel of Champions, a free-to-play card game set in the Might & Magic universe.

Ubisoft didn't divulge hard mechanical details in today's announcement materials for whatever reason, but it has confirmed the following about the game: (a) Duel of Champions will have collectible cards, (b) players will fight each other with these cards, and (c) users will also be able to buy these cards. So, yeah... this sure is card game.

More information will be coming to the game's official web site, and apparently a beta is open right now in France. We're doing our best to dig up some more substantial details so stick with us. If the Assassin's Creed card game proved anything, it's that Ubisoft knows how to fund decent tabletop experiences.

    Glad to see the M&M series make its way over. Hopefully Ubisoft will put Capybara Games on bringing over Clash of Heroes HD as well to the iPad. Capy is already familiar with iOS games, Clash of Heroes has been ported to just about every platform by now, and it's one of the best games I've played in recent memory. Really hope we'll see it one day, it'd be a blast to play on a touch screen.

       Completely agree. When I read the headline, the first thought was Clash of Heroes, then saw card game and that brief hope went away. Really hope they let Capy do it!

      Definitely will work. There are already other games that are basically CoH HD clones.

    Cooool.

    Is it Ubisoft who own the rights of Heroes of Might & Magic 1-2-3 and Might & Magic VI / VII / VIII? They should port em to iPad.
    Also the card game from the VII and VIII should be cool :)

      Agreed! Would LOVE the original M&M series via touch control.

    Clearly not an iPhone implementation, so that's kinda sad -- I don't own an iPad, can't really validate a reason to own a 'weaker than a PC/Mac' device for almost the cost of a PC/Mac, but maybe will get one when the pricing drops.

      a macbook is portable, a mac is not...a macbook is FAR FAR FAAAR more expensive than an iPad...and a game like this will almost certainly run fine on any old gen iPad

    Based on the board's various card border highlights, I'd say that the game's mechanics will involve strategic use of card placements, akin to Heroe's of Might & Magic (or for the really old-school, King's Bounty).
