PlayFusion and Games Workshop have announced that Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Champions will release on Nintendo Switch this month.
This modern collectible card game blends physical and digital collections. Those that have collected, or will collect, the physical cards can scan them into their in-game collection to conquer the battlefield with them in their deck.
It comes to the portable home console with Realm Trials, a brand-new single-player adventure that challenges you to fight legendary battles to conquer the Mortal Realms. There’s also a new Arena of Echoes mode, where players must draft decks from two given alliances to then battle through League rounds to gain entry to the prize Gauntlet.
With the custom crafted battle-ready decks from one of The Grand Alliances – Order, Chaos, Destruction, and Death – you will be able to challenge friends and enemies around the world online, with cross-platform with Steam and mobile devices.
New content and cards are being added to the game regularly, and, after learning the crafts of war in the tutorial, you can test your skill against AI or other players in Casual mode, AI challenges, or campaigns. And then, once you feel confident enough, you can challenge other players in Ranked matches for huge rewards each season.
“The response for the physical and digital game has already been incredible, and we just can’t wait to watch that grow to new heights,” enthuses PlayFusion CEO and co-founder Mark Gerhard.
“With the upcoming release of our Set 3 cards in Savagery, and a whole heap of new features like Arena of Echoes and Realm Trials, there’s always going to be something new to try. And now, there will be a much bigger community to try with.”
Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Champions will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on April 16th.
