I’m proud of the team and the game we’ve dedicated ourselves to for the past few years. It’s a been an amazing journey with even more amazing people. I’m going to do my best to get my team placed in new positions. I have programmers, designers, artists, QA staff and a producer to get placed in new roles and will do my best to do so quickly.

PARIS - November 5, 2019 - Asmodee Digital, a leader in video game entertainment inspired by board games, is proud to announce the release of The Lord of the Rings: Adventure Card Game on PlayStation®4, Nintendo Switch™ and Xbox One.

The first adventure card game set in the quintessential fantasy world of J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings: Adventure Card Game lets players face epic challenges during solo and cooperative adventures. The game is inspired by the cooperative Living Card Game®, The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game. Combining a strong immersive narrative experience with rich deck-building strategies, The Lord of the Rings: Adventure Card Game will put players’ skills to the test.

Adventure card gaming: Players can experience the only card game that lets them play an adventurer in Middle-earth. They will craft their own stories in the rich world of J.R.R. Tolkien by engaging in solo card-based battles or in collaborative campaigns with a friend in co-op mode.

A new story in Middle-earth: Gamers can develop and discover new stories in the world depicted in J.R.R. Tolkien’s books. They can build a Fellowship of heroes from some of the most iconic characters and wage battle in the most famous locations of the Third Age of Middle-earth.

A unique way of delivering new content: Players can obtain full expansion packs that provide both campaigns with new quests and hero packs with thematic cards, forging their adventures in Middle-earth.

Unique game mechanics: Players build custom decks, each based around three heroes with unique abilities. They draw upon an ever-growing pool of cards based on the distinctive spheres of the selected heroes. Players can then team up with friends and challenge themselves to complete Quests. They progress through their story by defeating the forces of Sauron in combat, and by using Willpower to resolve Objectives. Willpower can also be added to the Fate Pool, used to trigger contextual abilities during a Quest. In turn, the Threat Meter displays the increasing danger from Sauron, triggering roadblocks that can disrupt player strategies.

Staying true to the J.R.R. Tolkien universe and inspired by the physical card game, Asmodee Digital welcomes players to live the most immersive, yet challenging, adventures in Middle-earth.

All console versions feature the same content and gameplay mechanics as the Steam version, leveraging all the insights gathered during the Early Access phase on Steam.

The Lord of the Rings: Adventure Card Game is available today on PlayStation®4, Nintendo Switch™ and Xbox One for $24.99, including the tutorial campaign along with the first and the second campaign (“The Shadow's Fall Expansion”).

The Lord of the Rings: Adventure Card Game will be featured in the growing library of great games with Xbox Game Pass, along with other acclaimed Asmodee Digital titles, such as Pandemic and Munchkin: Quacked Quest.

The Lord of the Rings: Adventure Card Game comes to Switch on Nov. 5th, 2019

You shall not pass...until Nov. 5th!

Build a deck of iconic Heroes and challenge the forces of Sauron in this thrilling tactical card game. Go forth and explore famous locations, complete story-driven quests, and forge your own legend of Middle-earth. But beware the Eye of Sauron—should you draw his attention, all will be lost…

Answer the call of countless adventures, face the dark forces of Sauron, and protect the Free Peoples of Middle-earth. As allies gather and foes arise, so your journey begins.

The time has come to form and lead your own fellowship of heroes through immersive story-driven campaigns—each with its own unique narrative and challenges.

Pick three Heroes from some of the most emblematic characters of Middle-earth, then build your deck around their specific abilities and powers. Each Hero belongs to one of four Spheres of Influence—Leadership, Lore, Spirit, or Tactics—which allows you to play specific cards while in-game. Choose wisely when building your deck to make the most of each Hero and gain the advantage against Sauron’s forces. Each story-driven Campaign is set in famous locations across Middle-earth, providing hours of thrilling gameplay where each choice you make will forge a legend that will be sung about for ages to come.

While your journeys may contain great challenges, taking advantage of your Heroes and your customized decks will earn you victory in battle. Sometimes combining the strength of multiple champions from the same Sphere of Influence can help you overcome the swarms of Enemies that you will face. You might also apply your Characters’ Willpower to the Fate Pool and trigger powerful abilities that can turn the tide of battle. Each Quest is different, and there is no single path to victory—find the deck and the strategy that works for your fellowship!

Every Quest will require experimenting with different strategies as you confront ever more terrifying foes, ranging from giant Spiders to fierce Trolls, and even hordes of powerful Orcs! The Dark Lord will do everything in his power to prevent you from completing your journey. Watch out for the Threat Pool—as its total increases, Sauron can unleash story-specific events to make your Quest more difficult. Take care—if you reach the maximum Threat level, you will suffer Sauron’s full attention and fail your Quest!

- Form a fellowship of Heroes and iconic Characters and embark on new adventures throughout the lands of Middle-earth.

- Confront deadly Enemies from Sauron’s forces and solve story-driven Quests to progress through immersive Campaigns.

- Discover deep gameplay mechanics revealed through never-seen-before card battle features.
