The War of Three Kingdoms: The Card Game release date has been announced by tabletop company S7 Games according to a press release. This card game takes players back to the Three Kingdoms Period — a tumultuous time in China's history when multiple factions were vying for control of the entire land. Now you'll be able to relive this iconic part of history in a brand-new card game!

In this upcoming card game, players will take control of either the Shu, Wei, or Wu factions as they vie for control of ancient China. Create an army consisting of four distinct classes: Archer, Army, Cavalry, or Spearman. Of course, legendary generals like Cao Cao and Liu Bei will also be making an appearance. You won't have to wait too long to get this, either: the War of Three Kingdoms: The Card Game release date is October 18, 2019.

Aside from the Army Cards, players will also be able to use Tactic Cards to further enhance their forces. These cards will let you do things like increase the battle power of your units, draw additional cards, and (probably) other effects.

This particular tabletop game is based on Sangokushi Taisen, a hybrid digital and tabletop card game that was first released in 2005. Since then, the game has made its way to Arcades, the Nintendo DS, and PC. Players would put physical cards onto a playing area on the arcade cabinet, sort of like that old Yu-Gi-Oh! anime. Sangokushi Taisen 4 was most recently launched for arcades in 2016.

War of Three Kingdoms: The Card Game will be released directly to retailers on October 18, 2019. You can read more about it over at the game's official website.
