[Steam page] Asmodee Digital and Fantasy Flight Interactive today launched The Lord of the Rings: Living Card Game into Early Access on Steam for PC and Mac. The Early Access is currently available as a single-player only experience and will feature co-op play in the months to follow. The game tasks players with leading a Fellowship of three heroes through a series of narrative 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 to face challenges that test their spirit, lore, tactics, and leadership.
Early Access is open to all who have purchased one of the Founder’s Packs: the Shire pack, priced at USD7.99, the Steward of Gondor Pack, priced at USD15.99, and the Istari Pack, priced at USD29.99. Each Founder’s Packs come with a suite of cards, in-game currency, and custom cosmetic items that will start adventurers off on their quest. Players can opt to buy all Founder’s Packs in a bundle as the Mithril Founder’s Pack Bundle for USD47.99.
Players can also access Early Access if they have pre-ordered The Lord of the Rings: Living Card Game Collector’s Edition, which features a unique two-player starter edition of The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game, a brass replica of The One Ring (awesome!), individual art prints of four heroes from the game, and digital codes for the Mithril Founder’s Pack Bundle, custom cosmetic items, along with the Original Soundtrack as MP3 sound files.
