The Lord of the Rings: Adventure Card Game Announced for PS4

The Lord of the Rings: Adventure Card Game Announced for PS4

The Lord of the Rings: Adventure Card Game is coming to consoles this August. It lets fight against Sauron in either solo or cooperative mode.

Sony may not be holding a press conference at E3 this week, but they’re still announcing a few of their smaller new releases. The Lord of the Rings: Adventure Card Game is currently available on Mac and PC, but is coming to the PS4 this August. Check out the announce trailer below.

Card game fans will feel right at home here. You will use the unsung heroes of Middle Earth to fight against the forces of Sauron in either solo or cooperative mode. Your 30-card deck can be fully customized to put together your strongest team for journeying through the harrowing Tolkien universe.

Visually, the game looks quite a bit like Hearthstone in play. Those familiar character portraits on the battlefield look like near carbon copies of Blizzard’s card game. That said, this game puts a much bigger focus on cooperative play, so it should feel very different in practice.

This digital release is based on the tabletop experience from Fantasy Flight Games. That game has been out for a while now, so the team at Asmodee Digital has quite a bit of content to draw from as they grow the game. I’ll be interested to see if you can carry your progress between platforms. Hopefully, PC players won’t need to start over if they decide to play on PS4.

The Lord of the Rings: Adventure Card Game is out now on Mac and PC. It will be coming to PS4 on August 8. Keep your screen on Dualshockers all week for the latest news out of E3.
