Minecraft developer Mojang is finally releasing Scrolls

Michael McWhertor is a journalist with more than 17 years of experience covering video games, technology, movies, TV, and entertainment.

After more than 18 months in beta, Mojang's collectible card game Scrolls is finally getting an official release tomorrow, Dec. 11, the developer confirmed today.

Mojang released a new trailer for Scrolls today and said that the strategy game, which is available for Mac and Windows PC platforms, is also coming to Android tablets and will have its price lowered to $5. An iPad version of Scrolls is on the way, but not until sometime in 2015, Mojang's Owen Hill said. A demo for Scrolls is available to download from the game's official website.

Scrolls is a card-based strategy game that blends elements from both classic trading card games and board games, and features a story written by Penny Arcade's Jerry Holkins.

Developer Mojang was sold to Microsoft earlier this year in a $2.5 billion deal.
