What is the Gears of War: The Card Game release date?

Gears of War: The Card Game will release on April 10 and will be available in two languages at launch, English and Mexican Spanish. Pre-orders are available now from theĀ Steamforged games website. Gears of War: The Card Game is a Living Card Game, or LCG, which means unlike other card games such as Magic: The Gathering, there is no collecting element involved. Instead, everything you need comes in the box, and you’ll be ready to play immediately.

There is hardly any official detail about what the game will entail, but we have some educated guesses. For one, the game is split across multiple scenarios with different unique rules, forcing players to adjust tactics and strategies on the fly. These can include removing certain cards from your deck and replacing them with a choice of new ones or different effects and abilities working differently depending on the chapter.

Additionally, we know that certain cards have different abilities that can affect gameplay by flipping cards or if certain conditions are met. Some of the franchise’s signature mechanics, like cover, will also be a large part of the game; we can imagine others will too. On top of this, the game will feature multiple locations and characters from the video games for players to use in their matches.
