Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Champions, developed by PlayFusion in partnership with Games Workshop, is an exciting new Trading Card Game that is available today to play at Gen Con booth # 555 and stores across North America, Europe and Australia. This new game enables players to:
- Customise and command your line-up of Champions in duels against your opponents;
- Play quick, tactical games relying on skill and knowledge of your units, spells and abilities;
- Exploit innovative game mechanics including rotating cards that change each turn, and undertake quests unlocking blessings that boost your power;
- Master the fast action and card draw system designed to replace other games’ dated, slow and cumbersome resource mechanics.
“The wait is finally over and we couldn’t be more excited to show the world the game we’ve lovingly crafted as a culmination of our team’s decades of gaming experience heavily imbued with our deep love of the Warhammer Universe,” said Mark Gerhard, CEO and Co-Founder of PlayFusion. “We will be delivering on everything players expect plus so much more as the game mixes physical and digital in new, exciting and innovative ways as it continues to evolve in the decades ahead.”
The on-street date for the new physical Trading Card Game is August 2nd, available in select Games Workshop and Warhammer stores – in addition to all the usual quality outlets for TCGs.
The physical trading card game features 278 collectible cards which allow you to take command of one of four powerful factions and raise an army of legendary Champions. Launching alongside the TCG, the Champions App serves as precursor to the full digital game and immediately enables players to scan and claim their physical cards as well apply for early access to the digital game beta.
