PlayFusion brings AR to Warhammer
PlayFusion has teamed up with Games Workshop to launch a new Warhammer game, boasting physical trading cards, a fully digital trading card game and an augmented reality experience.
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 cards can also be viewed through PlayFusion’s Enhanced Reality Engine, allowing fans to unlock various enhanced gameplay options, while also giving them a means to explore the Warhammer Age of Sigmar world through AR.
Warhammer Age of Sigmar Champions will also feature physical-to-digital experiences that allows players to import their physical cards into a digital game and play them online.
“Partnering with Games Workshop fulfills a lifelong dream of contributing to the Warhammer universe,” said Mark Gerhard, CEO and co-founder of PlayFusion.
“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.”
Jon Gillard, head of licensing for Games Workshop, added: “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 is really something special.”
