Welcome to SCIU #58, for the weeks of April 6th – 19th.
This week the following new titles were announced:
Zombicide: Black Plague – CoolMiniOrNot‘s Zombicide game as much as us, you’ll be excited to hear that they’ll be releasing a new medieval fantasy version of it. Necromancers’ have used their arcane powers to summon the zombie hoard and now the player will need to fight back as paladins, dwarves, knights, and magicians, who have swords, crossbows, and spells at their disposal. Unfortunately no release date has been announced yet.
Descent 2E: Bonds of the Wild Hero & Monster Collection – The next instalment of Descent 2E will include four 1E heroes previously unavailable, namely Lyssa, Challara, Vyrah the Falconer, and Ronan of the Wild, as well as 18 new monsters. Also included are 2 new quests where in the heroes have to try discover the Tree of Life.
Star Wars: Armada Wave2 – Yet another Fantasy Flight Games announcement, Star Wars: Armada will see its Wave2 expansion in Q3. Five expansion packs will be avaliable, but the highlight has to be the huge pre-painted Imperial-Class Star Destroyer commanded by Darth Vader himself.
Awesome Kingdom: The Tower of Hateskull – As children of the 80’s, Kevin Wilson‘s new Awesome Kingdom: The Tower of Hateskull appeals to us massively. Inspired by 1980s Saturday morning cartoons, Awesome Kingdom is a tongue in cheek, satirical spin of the traditional “dungeon crawl” style adventure games. Players will compete to see who can exit the dungeon with the most amount of loot and be declared the “most awesome” hero. For 2-4 players ages 10+.
In other news:
While a bad quality copy was released online early, the official Batman Vs Superman trailer is now live. Batman’s mechanical suit and the awesome “Do you bleed?” line have us super excited for this 2016 release.
During the KickStarter campaign for the 3rd season of Geek & Sundry‘s TableTop it was promised that a RPG spinoff show would be produced. Well the time has come. On June 2nd Titansgrave: The Ashes of Valkana, utilising Green Ronin’s unreleased Fantasy AGE system, will be available on their Youtube page.
