PARIS - June 10, 2019 - Asmodee Digital, a leader in digital board game entertainment, is pleased to announce The Lord of the Rings: Adventure Card Game will be released on consoles on August 8th, 2019.
The first adventure card game set in the quintessential fantasy world of J.R.R.Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings: Adventure Card Game offers solo and cooperative adventures based on card battles. The game combines a strong immersive narrative experience with in-depth strategic challenges that will put players' tactics to the test.

- A new story in Middle-earth: Gamers can craft and discover new stories in the world depicted in J.R.R. Tolkien's books. They can build a fellowship of heroes from some of the most iconic characters and wage battle in the most famous locations of the Third Age of Middle-earth.
