Asmodee USA To Exclusively Distribute Skytear from Skytear Games

Roseville, MN – March 14, 2022. Asmodee USA announced they are the exclusive distributor of Skytear Games’ Skytear in the USA, UK, Australia, and New Zealand. Skytear is a card-driven miniatures game inspired by the wildly successful Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) genre of video games.

The game challenges players to protect their Nexus, while battling to destroy their opponent’s. To achieve this goal, players will draft heroes, create customized hero decks to do battle, and rally minions in the different lanes of battle. Skytear is diceless, so lane superiority depends on expertly crafted decks that will empower the heroes in battle against enemy heroes as they push their minions towards the opponent’s Nexus. Players will not want to neglect going after the Outsider, a large being full of immense power that, if won over by a team, could swing the tides of battle in their favor. All heroes, minions, and the Outsider are represented by high-quality, pre-assembled miniatures that can be painted for enhanced table presence.

Players can enjoy multiple modes of play, including one-lane, two-lane and three-lane maps. Each mode supports a different player count and number of heroes while also adding in random victory conditions depending on which one you play. These different modes also require varying strategies from the players, ensuring gameplay remains exciting. Skytear is designed with community in mind and supports a strong Organized Play program for players of all levels.

“Skytear truly captures the MOBA genre and brings it to tabletops like no other game has,” said Andre Kieren, Head of USA Distribution. “Adding the game to our distributed library is a win for everyone, especially digital gaming enthusiasts new to tabletop.”

“This partnership will allow us to reach the retail market, enabling some forms of casual and competitive organized play that were always a part of our vision for Skytear, the tabletop MOBA. We are excited,” stated Giacomo Neri, partner at Skytear Games.

Skytear will be available through Asmodee USA later in 2022.
