Darksiders The Forbidden Land Board Game Details Announced
Last week the official Darksiders’ Twitter had announced two physical pre-order editions for upcoming top-down action-RPG Darksiders Genesis. This included the premium Nephilim Edition which comes with a lot of goodies including the Darksiders The Forbidden Land board game for $379.99.
That’s right, with only this edition will you be able to get to your hands on the official board game. Publisher THQ Nordic have now revealed more details about how to play The Forbidden Land and what is included.
The board games comes with 61 pre-painted minatures, 124 tokens, 36 multi-hex modular boards, 423 cards, 4 player boards, custom dice, rulebook and campaign book. Each rider has a customisable deck of cards.
The game is designed with four players co-op, who can choose one of the Four Horsemen which includes War, Death, Fury as well as Strife, and one player who takes on the role of game master. It is possible to play without a game master, where the standard game dictates the movements. However, a game master can plan out enemy moves, making more of a challenge for the Horseman. So that means you can play with up to five players.
