[Steam page] Asmodee Digital and Fantasy Flight Interactive recently announced they are partnering to bring The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game to PC under a new digital game. Titled The Lord of the Rings Living Card Game, it is developed with a non-randomized approach to card purchasing and a focus on cooperative, story-based gameplay. They are working with Middle-earth Enterprises, which has been producing and licensing films, and merchandise based on The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit for more than 40 years.
As a single-player experience during the Steam Early Access phase, The Lord of the Rings Living Card Game tasks players with leading a team of three heroes through a series of campaigns across Middle-earth as they face off against the dark forces of Sauron. Players will forge their own fellowships and build decks comprised of ally, event, and equipment cards.
During official launch later in 2018, 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 game will also launch as a Free-to-Play game after Steam Early Access, with micro-transactions for additional purchases. Get ready for Middle-earth!
