Dragon Age Inquisition.

I haven't looked into it too much, but from what I've seen they chose good cards for the characters I'm familiar with.

The deck itself, from what I've heard, is supposed to actually be pretty decent for what amounts to shiny pretty loot from a pre-order, intended to be a nice souvenir rather than an actual working deck, for most people. (There's also a couple of tie-in playing card decks which are available much more cheaply, I've been toying with the idea of getting one for cartomancy type things.)
