God of War is a year old this month, and it seems Sony isn't stopping at just free themes and avatars. Board game developer CMON has announced that it's hard at work on a card game based on Kratos' Norse adventure, imaginatively named God of War: The Card Game.

"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," says the company on its website. "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."

It sounds relatively complex, but the gist is that you partake in Quests, which are made up of six double-sided cards laid out to form a single image. You then need to work together to defeat the Quest, using your hero's strengths, attacks, and special abilities to reach victory. The game is apparently due out in the latter half of 2019, and if you're curious, you can read more through here.
