Wizards and Tricksters Arrive to Smash Up Early Access Starter Pack

The Smash Up Early Access Starter Pack has added two new factions to forcibly team together. Wizards and Tricksters bring new options for those who have bought in to the game on Steam Early Access.


The Wizards faction is described as an interrupting force, with multiple actions in the form of spells and manipulation designed to leave opponents confused. Meanwhile, the Tricksters faction lets players use Leprechauns, Gnomes and Gremlins to their advantage with focus on disruption and “pure chaos in every play”.

In addition to the new factions, the latest update for the digital card game adds the first iteration of a multiplayer lobby, allowing players to set up online public or private games and invite friends. The developers describe the online features as being the first iteration, and warn that functionality might have issues.

The Wizards and Tricksters groups join the existing factions of Aliens, Robots, Pirates and Zombies available with the Smash Up Early Access Starter Pack, which is priced on Steam at $8.99. The base game, which includes the Dinosaurs, Ninjas and Geeks factions, is free-to-play.
