Take your physical cards into a digital card game with Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Champions20 Mar 2018 0
The war for the CCG Crown intensifies as a new challenger approaches: Games Workshop has decided it wants a slice of the pie and has partnered with Lightseekers developer PlayFusion to make it happen. Their weapon of choice: Augmented Reality.
Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Champions is the first digital adaptation of the Age of Sigmar fantasy setting, and will be a physical card game that will also allows players to import their cards into a digital app:
The physical trading card game will feature hundreds of collectible cards that players can use to build their own decks to fit their strategy and tactics. The physical cards will also come to life when viewed through PlayFusion’s Enhanced Reality Engine™, allowing fans to unlock various enhanced gameplay options while also giving them an exciting new way to explore the Warhammer Age of Sigmar world. PlayFusion will continue to partner with Games Workshop for many years to come, to offer new game expansions and additional card reveals.
Games Workshop have had physical card games in the past: most notably in partnership with Fantasy Flight Games (which is now owned by Asmodee) in the form of the now cancelled Warhammer: Invasion and Warhammer 40,000: Conquest LCGs. Neither had a digital component, however.
The whole thing is due to kick off this July on iOS, Android (and PC) and you can sign up at the official website.
