The Lord of the Rings: Adventure Card Game has officially been released for consoles. This is the first adventure card game set in J.R.R. Tolkien's quintessential fantasy world. In this game players face epic challenges either in solo mode or cooperative adventures. This game is inspired by the cooperative The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game and offers a strong immersive narrative experience combined with deck building.

Given that the inspiration is the physical card game, and in order to stay true to the universe created by Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings: Adventure Card Game offers players what may be the most immersive, challenging, adventure in Middle-earth.

Features of the game include:

  • Adventure card gaming
    • Players can experience the only card game that lets them play an adventurer in Middle-earth.
    • Players craft their own stories in the rich world of J.R.R. Tolkien by engaging in solo card-based battles or in collaborative campaigns with a friend in co-op mode.
  • A new story in Middle-earth
    • Players can develop and discover new stories in the world depicted in J.R.R. Tolkien’s books
    • They can build a Fellowship of heroes from some of the most iconic characters and wage battle in the most famous locations of the Third Age of Middle-earth.
  • A unique way of delivering new content
    • Players can obtain full expansion packs that provide both campaigns with new quests and hero packs with thematic cards, forging their adventures in Middle-earth.
  • Unique game mechanics
    • Players build custom decks, each based around three heroes with unique abilities.
    • They can also draw upon an ever-growing pool of cards based on the distinctive spheres of the selected heroes.
    • Players can team up with friends and challenge themselves to complete Quests. They progress through their story by defeating the forces of Sauron in combat, and by using Willpower to resolve Objectives.
      • Willpower can also be added to the Fate Pool, and used to trigger contextual abilities during a Quest.
      • In turn, the Threat Meter displays the increasing danger from Sauron, triggering roadblocks that can disrupt player strategies.

The Lord of the Rings: Adventure Card Game is now available on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One. The console versions feature the same content and gameplay mechanics as the Steam version and are priced at $24.99. This includes the tutorial campaign along with the first and the second campaign (“The Shadow's Fall Expansion”).
