No, you’re not reading that wrong, actual physical trading cards are coming back in a big way. And Dynamite Comics has a Fallout set ready for launch.
For a number of years now, trading cards were digital in nature. And it kind of seemed as thought the days of the actual physical “card” were well over. You might remember that those were massively popular all throughout the 80s and 90s. Though they died off (pretty much) right before the new millennium. Like almost everything else though, it looks like trading cards are back in a big way.
This year’s SDCC has seen a few companies jump back on the card bandwagon, maybe most prominently Dynamite Comics. The publisher has a monster of a license lined up for its first series with Bethesda’s Fallout.
Always a fan favorite of a series, Fallout is about to get yet another new game for consoles and the PC. So it’s perfect timing for Dynamite, who’ll have these cards out and on the shelves this October. And by the way, if you’re thinking that these’ll be a basic set of cards, you couldn’t be more wrong. Dynamite is going all out.
Featuring 144 unique base cards, 72 Holofoil chase cards, 10 Die-Cut chase cards and 5 Ultra-rare chase cards. Fallout fans can now collect trading cards representing their favorite weapons, gear, characters, and much more from this comprehensive collection of art and design that was taken straight from the Bethesda Game Studios archives.
“This trading card set is one of the most expansive and impressive collections of gaming fandom I’ve ever seen,” said Nick Barrucci, CEO and Publisher of Dynamite Entertainment. “For over twenty years, Fallout games have captured the imaginations of players everywhere and we’re incredibly excited to give something to the Fallout fans.”
