Author of Gears of War Gears of War: The Card Game LCG is on its way, and The Coalition and its partner Steamforged Games have confirmed the release date. Gears of War: The Card Game is scheduled to arrive on the aforementioned date, as reported by the Coalition.
Fans of Steamforged Games’ Living Card Games have been waiting anxiously for the Gears of War adaptation. Fans are ready to pre-request Gears of War: The Card Game with the announcement made today. If nothing else, it might make Gears 6’s hang-tight a little less of a challenge.
In the world of board and card games, Steamforged Games is well-known for its licenced adaptations. Steamforged Games’ late-game releases also include the card game Dark Souls, the board game Horizon: Zero Sunrise, and the board game Elden Ring, which is still in development.
The game industry frequently collaborates with reputable board and card game manufacturers like Steamforged Games to produce licenced merchandise. But the nature of licenced products can change dramatically.
Even though Gears of War: The Card Game was announced officially at the start of January, some may be surprised to learn that its scheduled release date is April 10. It’s unusual for a card game to have a four-month turnaround time like Gears of War: The Card Game, but skipping a crowdfunding campaign and all the tiers of rewards it entails can save a lot of time. Pre-orders for Gears of War: The Card Game can be placed on the Steamforged Games website starting at $34.95.
Gears of War: The Card Game is a collectible LCG, so getting it will provide you with all the cards you need to play the full game. Putting together a get-together is not part of the package. Each player in Gears of War: The Card Game controls either the Gear-tooth powers or the Grasshopper swarm. While battling across 15 unique situations, players can strengthen their deck with character cards from the Gears franchise.
It’s no secret that this isn’t the only officially sanctioned Gears of War offshoot causing a stir in the specialised community. And then there’s Gears of War: The Tabletop Game. Distributor Dream Flight Games and Star Wars: Rebellion designer Corey Konieczka collaborated in 2011 to release Gears of War: The Table game.
Those familiar with Konieczka’s writing won’t be surprised by the resounding praise for Gears of War: The Tabletop Game. There’s a chance that Gears of War: The Card Game will keep the trend going.
Sadly, until further notice, almost no information is available about how Gears of War: The Card Game is played. Maybe waiting until more information, including some model games, is worked out and shared online is the best course of action. Other than that, The Coalition keeps working on Gears 6 for an imminent release.
