Altered Carbon has been announced, hot on the heals of Warcradles announcement of a Flash Gordon card game this statement was released today.
As fans of the novels we are excited to be able to explore and expand on this imaginative and unique universe. There is so much to explore between the pages of the books, from the dark and seedy underground of Bay City to the wartorn and politically turbulent Sanction IV and even across the alien archipelagos of Harlan’s World. Others planets like Sharya and beyond have been hinted at – it’s a great big galaxy that we are exploring with Richard Morgan as our guide.
“Having spent time with the team at Warcradle Studios, I’m delighted to see them take on the Altered Carbon universe. These are true enthusiasts from the ground up, both of the tabletop gaming medium and of my books (so clearly, men and women of very fine taste indeed! 🙂 ). Frankly, I couldn’t wish for a better home for the IP and I can’t wait to see where they take it!”

We have had a team working on this within the studio for some time now and they are ready to reveal the first game to be released later this year. For this first foray into Altered Carbon we showcase the brutal and frenetic combat of Carnage’s savage Fightdrome arena.
Altered Carbon Fightdrome is a fast-paced combat card game where two players slug it out in the infamous Panama Rose arena. Each player will have their fighter’s digital consciousness (known as a stack) placed in an engineered or augmented body (known as a sleeve) for each bout. Your card deck will be customised depending on which combination of stack and sleeve you are using. Try to outwit your opponents to get in the killing blow and become the champion of Panama Rose.
“Welcome to the Panama Rose!” – Carnage
Of course, Panama Rose is only the first in a planned series of Fightdromes. Many other place are planned that players can test their mettle in. Expect even more brutal arena combat powered by Altered Carbon tech!
Panama Rose for Altered Carbon: Fightdrome will be released later this year. For more information please visit the website and register your interest.
