Scrolls release date announced, launch trailer shows tactical battling and sacrificial bunnies

Phil Savage at

About a minute and ten seconds into this launch trailer for Scrolls, Mojang's strategy card game, you can clearly see a player firing a catapult at a little group of bunnies. Now I know morality can be a tricky thing, but come on! What harm have bunnies ever done? Lynched lagomorphs aside, the trailer also reveals the date of the open beta, due next week on June 3rd.

For more on the game, you can peruse Mojang's mini-guide. At least, you can when the site stops being trampled under the weight of the studio's excited fans. And if that's not enough, we took a look at the game's deck system last year.

Scrolls will be available for £13/€15/$20.
