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.
