Fantasy Flight Games has announced the arrival of the fifth Adventure Pack for their Lord Of The Rings: The Card Game is on the horizon.

LOTR battle of carn

With its sixty new cards, The Battle of Carn Dûm introduces a challenging, combat-intensive scenario that takes your heroes into the heart of Angmar where you’ll need to fight your way through hordes of Orcs and other creatures in order to prevent an ancient evil from returning to the world (cue ominous music and wolves howling in the distance).

However, if the walls of Carn Dûm and the raw might of the assembled Orcs and Werewolves aren’t enough to slow you, you’ll still need to deal with the dread Captain that leads them and the foul and shadowed Sorcery that fills the air.

Do not fear – your heroes and their courage are not to be underestimated. Along with its scenario, The Battle of Carn Dûm introduces a new Dúnedain hero and twenty-seven player cards (three copies each of nine different cards), including powerful events for each Sphere of influence.

These continue to round out the new mechanics explored within the cycle, as Leadership and Tactics players gain new Valour effects, Lore players gain an event that allows their Dúnedain or Rangers to avoid a scenario’s deadliest enemies, and Spirit players gain a Noldor-themed card that plays only from the discard pile.

With their new allies and these powerful events, your heroes just might stand a chance…perhaps. This fifth Adventure Pack in the Angmar Awakened Cycle is due to hit the shelves in the third quarter of 2015.

Will you be fighting in the The Battle of Carn Dûm?
