PlayFusion and Games Workshop have announced that the digital version of Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Champions will arrive on Nintendo Switch April 16.
The cool thing about the Switch version of Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Champions is that your physical card deck is compatible with it. You can actually scan your real-world cards into your collection and use them in the video game version. If you don’t have any physical cards, the Switch game offers plenty of them.
But the Switch version offers something that neither the physical nor any other pre-existing Warhammer video game does: a new single-player adventure called Realm Trials. PlayFusion boasts that this new quest contains dozens of hours of gameplay. There’s also a new mode, Arena of Echoes, that introduces a new way to battle:
Drafting decks from 2 given alliances, players will craft their own from a random selection of cards and battle through a series of League rounds to gain entry to the prize Gauntlet. Be careful not to lose, else you drop through the ranks and end your run!
In addition to the newcomers Realm Trials and Arena of Echoes, you’ll find the other standard campaigns and modes that are part of the Steam and mobile versions. Plus, crossplay with those versions is enabled.
“The response for the physical and digital game has already been incredible, and we just can’t wait to watch that grow to new heights,” says Mark Gehard, CEO and Co-Founder of PlayFusion. “With the upcoming release of our Set 3 cards in Savagery, and a whole heap of new features like Arena of Echoes and Realm Trials, there’s always going to be something new to try. And now, there will be a much bigger community to try with.”
