Fans of the highly-popular Doctor Who franchise have a new game to look forward to in 2021. The Doctor Who: Worlds Apart trading cards are currently available for purchase.
The Doctor Who: Worlds Apart digital cards allow fans to collect their favorite characters from the franchise. From BBC Studios and Reality Gaming Group, there are over 200 digital cards to collect. The cards are based on characters, scenes, and objects selected from the “entire 57-year history” of the property.
You can go ahead and choose from four different packs to purchase. Each contains between five to ten limited edition cards showcasing hand-drawn images. There are also 13 different cosmetic card frames to collect.
Of course, certain cards will be rarer than others. For example, the TARDIS will be tougher to get than the Silurian.
A marketplace will be launched next year for players to trade cards with each other.
An interesting thing is that each card happens to be “secured and protected on the blockchain.” This means that there won’t be any copies and no disputes over ownership.
As for the upcoming game, the cards can be used during a free-to-play tactical card game that will be released for PC sometime in 2021.
The game will be action-packed, with battles fought on digital tabletop boards depicting recognizable locations from Doctor Who. Collectors will play a Time Lord, strategically outsmarting their opponents by building decks that are able to combat a wide variety of tactics.
Morten Rongaard, Co-Founder of Reality Gaming Group, said, “We are tremendously excited to be working with BBC Studios to bring Doctor Who’s huge global community an exciting new digital experience based on a pastime we all know and love – trading cards. The cards used in Doctor Who: Worlds Apart are both functional and collectible, so fans can actually own a piece of the game while they play.”
John Kavanagh, Licensing Manager, Gaming and Interactive, BBC Studios, shared, “We’ve worked closely with Reality Gaming Group to deliver a fantastic opportunity to collect and own these beautiful cards and use them in a unique game experience.”
