UPPER DECK ENTERTAINMENT INTRODUCES MULTIPLAYER GAME PLAY FOR
VS. SYSTEM™ WITH NEW ‘COMING OF GALACTUS' COLLECTOR SET
Players Will Have a Chance to Fight Alongside Friends for the Fate of the Earth
Beginning in November with New Giant-Size Vs. System™ Set
CARLSBAD (October 12, 2007) – Galactus the World Devourer is returning to Earth, and this time, Vs. System™ players around the world will be able to join forces to stop him. In November, Upper Deck Entertainment (UDE) will introduce the very first Vs. System multiplayer expansion set with Giant-Size Vs: The Coming of Galactus.
Taking the Vs. System's game representation of Super Hero combat to the next level, The Coming of Galactus
will be available at most participating retail and hobby stores across the U.S.
For the first-time ever in the Vs. System, players will have a chance to form an alliance with friends to take on the Devourer of Worlds himself, Galactus. The combined powers of the Fantastic Four were enough to drive off this epic foe, but what about the combined powers of the X-Men, the Spider-Friends and the Avengers? Players will get to answer that question themselves as they take their favorite decks into battle against Galactus and his Heralds.
The set will feature brand-new cards designed especially for a true multiplayer experience, in addition to new and exclusive cards that can be played in any traditional Vs. System deck. Players can use these cards in the decks they take into battle or use them as rewards when they finally manage to defeat Galactus.
Each Coming of Galactus
set includes an 80-card Galactus deck, five randomly inserted cards (20 to collect), an oversized Galactus card, a UDE Points card and a rulebook. The Galactus deck is designed to be played against decks from any other Vs. System release.
The Vs. System game engine represents epic Super Hero™ battles in a TCG format. Development of the game included testing by top professional TCG players from around the world to ensure that the Vs. System is carefully balanced for high-level competition, as well as casual play. Vs. System players can find organized play programs supporting all levels of competitive gameplay, from Hobby League to the Pro Circuit.
