VtES History: White Wolf Acquires Vampire CCG From Wizards Of The Coast

White Wolf Acquires Vampire CCG From Wizards Of The Coast

ATLANTA, Ga. -- White Wolf, best known for its roleplaying game Vampire: The Masquerade, has acquired the license for production of its collectible card game Vampire: The Eternal Struggle from former licensee Wizards of the Coast.

Designed by Magic: The Gathering creator Richard Garfield, Vampire: The Eternal Struggle adapts White Wolf's popular roleplaying game to the CCG format with over 1,000 cards depicting various aspects of the World of Darkness. The advanced strategy and social elements of Vampire: The Eternal Struggle earned it a 1999 selection as one of the ten best CCGs by InQuest Magazine.

"Vampire: The Eternal Struggle has always been regarded as one of the best, if not the best, strategy CCG. Expert CCG players who are looking for a card game with more play strategy inevitably get hooked on Vampire: The Eternal Struggle once they play." said Steve Wieck, White Wolf President.

White Wolf's first Vampire CCG release will be a heavily revised edition of the sold-out Sabbat set. The new edition Sabbat will be redesigned to include plenty of new cards plus some older cards that are in high demand. The set will include Booster Packs plus Pre-Constructed Starter Decks so new players can get an easy introduction to the complex, strategic game play of Vampire: The Eternal Struggle.

New and old Vampire: The Eternal Struggle players will continue to be able to take part in over a hundred worldwide tournaments each year. White Wolf has recognized the Vampire: Elder Kindred Network (V: EKN) as its official player-community support organization. V:EKN is active in organizing player communities in major cities around the world, hosting tournaments and maintaining player rankings for the V:TES player community.
