CMON and Sony are teaming up to bring you God of War: The Card Game. Players take on the role of characters from the classic video game as they work to stop Ragnarok. The game utilizes a mosaic of cards that create a sort of "board" that players will be fighting on, moving to different columns to attack different sections. As pieces are defeated, the cards are flipped. Players' deck of attack and defense cards grow and change as they adventure. If they can complete 3 quests, they are able to stop the end of everything.
From the announcement:
Ragnarök is coming. The fate of all existence is at stake. Is destruction inevitable, or are there ways to avoid ultimate cataclysm? The Norns, mystical beings of great power, have decided they will not go quietly into oblivion and have turned their attention to the well of Fate, Urðr, in order to find any possible way to stop Ragnarök. Looking deep into the swirling waters, they can foresee what potential combination of heroes, villains, battles, victories, or defeats might stop the end of all that is known. But will they find the right combination in time? Is there any true path to salvation at all? They must hurry and seek the true way through, before all is lost.
In God of War: The Card Game, players take on the role of the Norns as they try different combinations of heroes and events in order to stop Ragnarök. Each game is a new attempt to find the right key to saving Midgard from destruction. One-to-four players must work together, embodying mighty heroes such as Kratos, Mimir, Atreus, Brok and Sindri, and Freya. They will fight enemies and bosses from the popular God of War videogame, but combined and remixed in exciting new ways, creating unique “What if…?” scenarios every time they play. If they succeed, the way forward has been secured and Ragnarök can be halted. Failure means the Norns will have to try again, as only death and destruction lay along that particular path.
