Asmodee Digital, Fantasy Flight Interactive to Adapt The Lord of the Rings™: The Card Game for PC
Best-selling cooperative card game heads to PC for an immersive digital experience
ROSEVILLE, Minnesota - Dec. 9, 2017 - Asmodee Digital and Fantasy Flight Interactive today announced they are partnering to bring The Lord of the Rings™: The Card Game to PC, as a digitally optimized adaption of the best-selling Living Card Game® from Fantasy Flight Games.
Fantasy Flight Games revolutionized tabletop card games with the highly successful The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game. As a Living Card Game, The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game relied on a fixed distribution of cards to remove randomness from the purchase model and brought players deeper into The Lord of the Rings universe with a focus on immersive, narrative-driven experiences. Now, Fantasy Flight Interactive brings that same philosophy to the digital card game market with The Lord of the Rings Living Card Game—a completely unique digital card game with a non-randomized approach to card purchasing and a focus on cooperative, story-based gameplay.
“The Lord of the Rings Living Card Game takes what fans love about the physical card game—adventure, lore, and a chance to play using powerful characters and artifacts—and adapts it for an entirely unique interactive experience on the PC,” said Tim Gerritsen, Head of Fantasy Flight Interactive. “For those unfamiliar with the card game, the digital adaptation invites players to become a part of the fantastical world J.R.R. Tolkien created and embark on new adventures.”
As a single-player experience, The Lord of the Rings Living Card Game tasks players with leading a team of three heroes through a series of narrative campaigns across Middle-earth as they face off against the dark forces of Sauron, controlled by the computer. Players will forge their own fellowships and build decks comprised of ally, event, and equipment cards to face challenges that test their willpower, knowledge, tactics and leadership. In the future, The Lord of the Rings Living Card Game will be expanded to support co-op play, allowing two players to bring their fellowships together and fight through quests side-by-side!
The Lord of the Rings Living Card Game will launch first into Early Access via Steam, as a single-player-only game in the coming months. The game will be launched as a full free-to-play release in 2018.
Most of the rough edges in BFV are around stuff like UI. The actual game is solid as hell. (4 Hours ago)
This is also the first Battlefield game that won't have expansions, which is something consumers asked for. (4 Hours ago)
It's not really the case where more content is always better. The quality of the content is important. (4 Hours ago)
@MrWhite: Game is fantastic compared to BF4 at launch. (4 Hours ago)
burn-out considering the uneven use. The Q9FN has FALD dimming which, while not quite as good as OLED, gives in practice very good blacks. Worse viewing angle than the C8, but brighter HDR. low lag. (5 Hours ago)
@jmd749: I'm getting the Samsung 65Q9FN in a few weeks. it's the same price as the LG C8. Both have their advantages, but i play so much old games with scanlines that i'm a bit worried about visible.. (5 Hours ago)
The absolute balls on these bastards to charge ridiculous prices for products that aren't even finished. If it were any other industry, they'd be called to account. (7 Hours ago)
