Looking forward to Lord of the Rings LCG. Watched some old streams on twitch. They plan to launch into early access q1, most likely March. Early access wont last for ages. They dont want the game to live and die in EA. So ea is gonna last a month of 6 probably and they want decent version to start with so people keep playing.
At the start there will be 4 hero packs:
Rangers of Gondor: Faramir (Lore)
Faithful Servant: Sam Gamgee (Leadership)
Shieldmaiden of Rohan: Eowyn (Spirit)
Prince of Mirkwood: Legolas (Tactics)
With another 12 hero packs to be released while in early access.
They plan to add content like these hero packs and new adventures on a regular base.
They get complains about the needed internet connection but they state it is needed when the game becomes cross-platform. (One account to rule them all and in the darkness bind them )
and the connection is also needed when buying hero packs /valor cards to prevent duplicates beyond the max allowed in a deck and new adventures. (Valor is an in game currency you get by playing.)
Leaderboards, co-op etc wil be implemented at a later point.
