Fantasy Flight announces new LCG in the Marvel Universe coming later this year

Fantasy Flight Games recently announced Marvel Champions: The Card Game, their newest Living Card Game which takes place in the Marvel Universe. In this cooperative board game for one to four players heroes will work together to stop the villains from global domination, and will be released during the fourth quarter of this year.

With over 350 cards, 100 tokens, five hit point trackers, and more, the Marvel Champions: The Card Game Core Set gives you everything you need to start your journey in the Marvel Universe, letting you play as Iron Man, Captain Marvel, Spider-Man, Black Panther, or She-Hulk, combining your powers with your fellow heroes to take down the rampaging Rhino, the cunning Klaw, or the utterly terrifying Ultron!

As a Living Card Game, the Marvel Champions: The Card Game Core Set is just the beginning. You can expect to see new Marvel Champions expansions coming out every month, and unlike a collectible game, there’s no chase for rare cards—you’ll find a full playset of each card in every expansion. As Marvel Champions continues beyond the Core Set, you’ll be able to expand your collection with new heroes, scenarios, and more! Best of all, you’ll always know exactly what’s inside a new Marvel Champions product.

In addition, although previous Living Card Game Core Sets required multiple purchases to get a complete set of cards, Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce that just one Marvel Champions: The Card Game Core Set will give you a complete set of cards, giving you everything you need to customize your heroes!

While playing Marvel Champions you won’t just be playing the role of the hero that you know, but will also take on their alter-ego. Using this alter-ego players will be able to heal up and prepare for the villains next attack.

Choosing between your hero and your alter-ego also directly impacts how the villain acts in their phase. If you’re in your hero form, the villain will ignore their scheme in favor of attacking you directly, but if you’re in your alter-ego form, the villain will ignore you to advance their nefarious plans. Taking too much damage from the villain’s attacks can cause your hero to be knocked out of the fight, but sometimes you have to do whatever it takes to stop the villain’s plans! It’s also about teamwork—if all of the heroes decide to end their turn in their alter-ego form, a villain like Rhino is free to rampage through the city. But always facing the villain head-on and dealing with his brute strength may not be the best idea, either. Proper teamwork is key to defeating the monstrous villains arrayed against you.

Marvel Champions: The Card Game will be released in the fourth quarter of 2019. For more information about this and all Fantasy Flight Games has coming at Gen Con and later this year stay tuned to Gaming Trend.
