Two different ways to play with friends. 1) Realm Battles - invite an online friend to assist you in the AI battles. If you want a strictly PvE experience, turn "Invasions" off to ensure other players don't take over the AI bots in the fights. (Two players online max). 2) Custom Matches ("Comp Stomping") - Configure custom matches, either local "hotseat" or online (real-time or asynchronous), that allow you and up to 4 other friends to take on computer opponents. Matches allow for a maximum of 6 players in any configuration of human vs A.I., i.,e 3v3, 4v2, 5v1. (Five players online, or five players local max).
From Julian Gollop, the designer of the original, award-winning XCOM game comes Chaos Reborn - a turn-based wizard combat game with single player Realm Quests and many online options. Between 2 and 6 players can challenge each other to magical duels in a variety of arenas using a spell deck of interesting spells and creatures - including the Gooey Blob, Shadow Wood, and more. There is a monthly league system and several game modes with live or asynchronous battles. You can explore the Realms of Chaos fighting Wizard Lords and Kings, and invite players to join you in co-op battles, or act as an invader in someone else's realm. These Realms can be designed by player Wizard Kings and rated by other players.
