FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Doctor Who: Worlds Apart will launch its second permanent card set, ‘Time Lord Victorious’, on August 26th 2021.
The set will include two brand new packs of the cards themed around the transmedia series of the same name, which follows Doctors from across the series as they face Daleks and the ancient alien race known as the Kotturuh.
Doctor Who: Worlds Apart is an officially licensed digital trading card game published by Reality Gaming Group that has been in development since early 2021, combining the richness and variety of Doctor Who lore with a deep, strategic game mechanic for PC and Mac.
The ‘Time Lord Victorious’ set marks the first time that completely new cards have been added permanently to the game, alongside the original cards released as part of the “Unearthly Origins” set in November 2020.
Each of the fifty new cards features hand-drawn artwork, characters, companions and enemies from the Doctor Who universe, classic and new.
All Doctor Who: Worlds Apart cards available to purchase use Non-Fungible Token (NFT) technology, which enables players to sell and trade the cards with each other on an open marketplace. Every card in the game is available in beautiful 3D frames, which allow players to create custom decks that are truly unique, making every card a collector’s item.
The cards in the ‘Time Lord Victorious’ set are available in either in the ‘Core Pack’, priced at $4.99, or the ‘Premium Pack’, priced at $49.99. All the cards, artworks, characters and stats are the same between the packs, so you only need the Core Pack to enjoy the new mechanics and gameplay. The Premium Pack, designed with collectors and NFT enthusiasts in mind, features the brand new ‘Time Lord Victorious’ and ‘Kotturuh’ frames and will only be available for a limited time.
All Doctor Who: Worlds Apart cards get minted onto the blockchain when players open packs, and are assigned a unique serial number so every card is truly a one of a kind. Serial #1 cards of popular characters can reach high values amongst digital collectors on the marketplace and can even be exported to public marketplaces like Opensea, representing true digital ownership.
“This latest set of cards will provide players with new ways to experience the game when the alpha launches later this year,” said Reality Gaming Group’s Co-Founder Tony Pearce, “Because every Time Lord Victorious card is an NFT that you own, you can trade and sell your cards directly with other players and Doctor Who fans, building your unique collection of cards and frames just like you would in a physical trading card game.”
