In addition to the release of The King Of Carrion Encounter, recently, Asmodee Digital and Fantasy Flight Interactive announced plans to shift the game’s economic model from free-to-play to a full premium model once the game goes into full release. Fantasy Flight Interactive’s Timothy Gerritsen had this to say about the decision, "We received a lot of constructive feedback from our communities and decided to make a change to improve the game for the community as a whole. In addition, we will continue to roll out plenty of content in the future."
The full game will come with a suite of cards, in-game currency, and custom cosmetic items that will start adventurers off on their quest through Middle-earth. Steam: store.steampowered.com/app/509580/
