PlayFusion has announced a new IP partnership with Games Workshop to develop an all-new way for tabletop war gaming and TCG fans to experience the Warhammer Age of Sigmar universe. The new game will feature physical trading cards, a fully digital trading card game for mobile and PC, and a completely immersive augmented reality experience using PlayFusion’s proprietary computer vision and augmented reality technology, the Enhanced Reality Engine.
PlayFusion will launch the new Warhammer Age of Sigmar Champions experience in July 2018. Mark Gerhard, CEO and Co-Founder of PlayFusion, spoke about the upcoming release and new partnership, saying:
“Partnering with Games Workshop fulfills a lifelong dream of contributing to the Warhammer universe. The majority of our team and I grew up part of the Warhammer community, so it’s a huge honour for all of us to not only partner with such an iconic British company but also to contribute to one of the original and best fantasy IPs in the world. We are really passionate about developing a rich and innovative new way for the community and beyond to experience the Age of Sigmar.”
The physical trading card game will feature hundreds of collectible cards that players can use to build their own decks to fit their strategy and tactics. The physical cards will also come to life when viewed through PlayFusion’s Enhanced Reality Engine, allowing fans to unlock various enhanced gameplay options while also giving them an exciting new way to explore the Warhammer Age of Sigmar world. PlayFusion will continue to partner with Games Workshop for many years to come, to offer new game expansions and additional card reveals.
Available for iOS, Android and PC, the game will give the community a new way to experience the universe either physically or on their favorite devices with online play. Jon Gillard, Head of Licensing for Games Workshop, also spoke about the news, saying:
“Working with such a talented and accomplished group like PlayFusion is an absolute privilege. Their passion, technological expertise, and just sheer ‘can do’ attitude has been seriously impressive. Taking the richness of Warhammer Age of Sigmar and merging it with their innovative hybrid physical/digital trading card game makes for a winning combination anyway, but add in the cool AR functionality and this game really is something special.”
