Warhammer Age of Sigmar Champions is an upcoming physical and digital trading card game coming to iOS, Android, and PC in July. Announced at GDC 2018, the augmented reality experience uses PlayFusion’s proprietary ‘Enhanced Reality Engine’ to unlock gameplay options on the physical cards when using mobile devices.

Game studio PlayFusion, who are also a robotics and AI company, and makers of AR-enhanced trading card game Lightseekers (2017), are bringing their expertise in mixed-media and augmented reality to the Warhammer universe. Warhammer Age of Sigmar Champions is described as “an all-new way for tabletop war gaming and for Trading Card Game fans to experience the Warhammer Age of Sigmar universe.”

The mixed-media approach works in two ways: the physical trading card game, which is said to feature “hundreds of collectible cards” for strategic deck building, can be enhanced with AR, and the digital trading card game can be enhanced by importing the physical cards for use in the digital world. While we aren’t sure exactly what that entails, the announcement describes a “completely immersive augmented reality experience” to accompany the physical cards, and “unique physical-to-digital experiences” for playing the digital game online.

Warhammer Age of Sigmar Champions represents the beginning of a new partnership between PlayFusion and Games Workshop, who plan to bring new expansions and card reveals “for many years to come.”

Pre-registration for Warhammer Age of Sigmar Champions can be found on the game’s official website.

The trial version of Microsoft’s Monster Truck Madness probably had something to do with it. And certainly the original Super Mario Kart and Gran Turismo. A car nut from an early age, Dominic was always drawn to racing games above all other genres. Now a seasoned driving simulation enthusiast, and former editor of Sim Racer magazine, Dominic has followed virtual reality developments with keen interest, as cockpit-based simulation is a perfect match for the technology. Conditions could hardly be more ideal, a scientist once said. Writing about simulators lead him to Road to VR, whose broad coverage of the industry revealed the bigger picture and limitless potential of the medium. Passionate about technology and a lifelong PC gamer, Dominic suffers from the ‘tweak for days’ PC gaming condition, where he plays the same section over and over at every possible combination of visual settings to find the right balance between fidelity and performance. Based within The Fens of Lincolnshire (it’s very flat), Dominic can sometimes be found marvelling at the real world’s ‘draw distance’, wishing virtual technologies would catch up.
