Elden Ring, FromSoftware's latest smash hit, is getting an official board game. Oh, and it'll be available on Kickstarter very soon.
Steamforged Games is the same developers that released officially licensed board games as Dark Souls, Horizon Zero Dawn, and Resident Evil.
Venture into the Lands Between
The board game Elden Ring is described as "as challenging as you'd expect," and I believe FromSoftware fans will expect nothing less.
The Elden Ring tabletop board game will have "dice less combat" in an unexpected twist.
The board game will be set in the Lands Between and will also be playable for one to four players.
The board game is described as a "huge and varied adventure," visiting historic sites and encountering familiar characters.
"It will be as challenging as you'd expect from the video game's frightening reputation," Sherwin Matthews, a senior designer at Steamforged Games, told Wargamer.
The board game Elden Ring will introduce something new.
“Elden Ring: The Board Game is powered by an entirely new game engine,” says Matthews. Adding that it has a: “...a massive open world and the feeling of exploration was very much at the forefront of our minds during the design and development of the game.”
As the Kickstarter campaign gets underway, further information on the board game will be kept under wraps until the Kickstarter campaign is officially underway. "We intend to investigate further how the game performs in the coming weeks, with designer diary and interviews, so stay tuned," says Matthews.
Moreover, the press release emphasizes dice-less combat, a feature that was previously absent from Steamforged Games tabletop products.
The Kickstarter campaign will be launched in the near future.
Intelligent dice-free combat will allow players to strategize and modify their plans during each encounter, whether it be a lowly Godrick Soldier or the Grafted King himself.
Soulsborne fans are hoping that new Elden Ring content will be released in the near future. We'll keep our fingers crossed.
The Elden Ring Kickstarter campaign will launch in the next weeks, and we anticipate it to surpass any funding objective.
