Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Champions Heads to PC, Switch

PlayFusion has announced they’re porting Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Champions to Windows PC, Mac (both via Steam), and Switch.

The digital card game is a digital adaptation of the recent trading card game of the same name. Set in the post-Warhammer Fantasy Battles Age of Sigmar universe, players buy packs and construct decks themed around the four Grand Alliances of the Mortal Realms. The physical card game is about to add the new Gloomspite Gitz faction that came out for the miniatures game earlier in January.

Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Champions is already available on mobile, and will be arriving on Steam and Switch sometime in February. The game will support cross-play between all versions.

In a rather interesting twist for a card game, you can actually scan physical cards from your collection with a webcam to unlock them in the digital version. You can check out the feature in the trailer above.

Here’s a rundown of the game:
