Asmodee Digital and Fantasy Flight Interactive are going to be partnering to bring the Lord of the Rings card game onto PC, as a digitally optimized adaptation of the Living Card Game from Fantasy Flight Games. As a card game that has a fixed distribution of cards to prevent randomness from their purchase model also brought players deep into the Tolkien Lore with a focus on a deep narrative-driven experience. As a single player experience, this card game tasks players with leading a team of three heroes across a series of campaigns through Middle-earth, facing off against Sauron and his forces, 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 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.”
