You may remember towards the end of last year, CMON Games had announced they would be bringing Bloodborne to physical form with a board game. They now announced their Kickstarter will go live this month.
Bloodborne: The Board Game Kickstarter Campaign Starts April 23rd
FromSoftware’s challenging and dark RPG Bloodborne released over four years ago but their fanbase still holds strong. CMON Games have adapted the title into a board game which will launch on the crowd funding website Kickstarter on April 23rd. Backers will be able to help to support the project to make this board game a reality.
The board game has been designed by Michael Shinall and Eric M. Lang, who also produced the Bloodborne card game. The tabletop version sets out to be quite different from their previous game, with a number of miniatures based on characters and enemies found in the game. Players will be gain a number “Starter Option” weapons but according to the latest design diary its down to player preference:
…as with all the Trick Weapons in Bloodborne, none are really better than the rest, so “starter weapon” or not, it’s just a matter of preference and play-style.
#BloodborneTheBoardGame, designed by Eric M. Lang and Michael Shinall, is coming to #Kickstarter April 23 at 3pm EST! Fight as a Hunter to vanquish the rotting plague that is terrorizing the city of #Yharnam.
