Ever been in the middle of a game when suddenly the TV goes off and you’re plunged into darkness? How do you satisfy the craving you’re left with for continuing the fight against the Locust Horde? Well, coming later this year is the release of Gears of War: The Board Game. Designed by Corey Konieczka for Fantasy Flight Games, the board game is based on the popular Xbox 360 title by Epic Games.
Described as ‘a cooperative board game of fierce firefights for 1- 4 people’, the game ‘will have seven missions delivering a range of objectives, from placing a sonic resonator deep in the Locust-infested earth to escaping the attack of a raging Berserker.’ Using an ever-expanding and randomised map system, each mission is randomly built every time you play, ensuring that no two games are ever exactly alike.
Gears of War: The Board Game includes:
• Over 30 plastic figures
• Over 200 cards
• 35 Locust AI Cards
• 17 Double-sided Map Tiles
• Nearly 75 tokens and markers
• 1 Mission Reference Sheet
• 5 Attack Dice and 4 Defense Dice
• 1 Line-of-Sight Ruler
So great ready to bring the fight to the Horde at any time and don’t forget to keep those candles close at hand.
