Good news Whovians! Looks like a new Doctor Who game is on the horizon. A PC version of the Doctor Who: Worlds Apart card game is coming in 2021. It’s based on a physical trading card game of the same name.

Like the physical version, the digital game pits players against each other in a turn-based match. All battles will take place on digital tabletop boards, which depict many of the show's locations. It goes without saying that players take on the role of a Time Lord.

While the PC game is quite a bit far off, fans can now collect digital versions of the trading cards. There are more than 200 digital trading cards available based on characters, scenes, and objects drawn from the almost three-decade history of the show.

Fans can buy four different packs from the Doctor Who: Worlds Apart website. Each pack is between five and ten limited-edition cards. Each card has beautifully hand-drawn images. There are 13 different cosmetic card frames to collect too. Same with the physical counterpart, some trading cards are rarer than others. The TARDIS, for example, is likely rarer compared to the Silurian.

Additionally, a marketplace will launch next year. Here, fans can trade their cards with those from other fans. By the way, each card is secured and protected on the blockchain. There will be no extra copies or even disputes when it comes to ownership.

Here are the different card packs that fans and collectors can get:

  • Core Pack
    • Price: $4.99

      • 5 cards

He added: “fans can actually own a piece of the game while they play.”
