Mythic Games and Privateer Press announced the co-production of a new Monsterpocalypse big-box product range that will be coming to Kickstarter before the end of the year.
“We are excited about this collaboration! Many of us at Mythic are long-time players of Privateer’s miniatures games,” said Mythic co-founder and Head of Communications Leonidas Vesperini, “and the opportunity to work with our friends at Privateer on a new expression of Monsterpocalypse that will make it accessible to players all over the world is one that our entire team is excited for.”
The new big box Monsterpocalypse range will be 100% compatible with the existing Monsterpocalypse hobby miniatures game products and plays exactly the same, but requires no assembly. This is a board game version of the classic skirmish game and aims to give the same feeling as the original game while making it more accessible and “pick and play”. choose your agenda, between the protectors and the destroyers, lead your units into the city and hunt down your opponent, while destroying everything in your way!
The new Monsterpocalyspe product range will include a two-player core box, a multi-player expansion that allows co-op and competitive play for up to four players, and multiple add-ons that offer more monster characters, units, and buildings to expand players’ collections. The core box will contain 8 classic Monsterpocalypse miniatures representing four different factions: G.U.A.R.D, Planet Eaters, Lords of Cthulu and Terrasaurs, several unit miniatures and awesome plastic buildings, a double-sided game board, and all the dice and tokens needed to play solo, two-player co-op, and two-player competitive games.
The Multiplayer expansion, available as an add-on or a base pledge, will bring three and four-player co-op and competitive games to Monsterpocalypse for the first time with an extra-large double-sided game board designed for multiplayer games. The expansion also includes dice and accessories for two more players as well as five all-new Apex monsters — mighty evolutions of some of the most famous characters in Monsterpocalypse. The Apex monsters include Ultimate Defender-X, Yasheth the Insatiable, Glacier Armodax, Imperator Gorghadra, and Supreme Gallamaxus. The team-up between Mythic Games, the #4 highest-grossing board game manufacturer on Kickstarter, and award-winning miniatures game producer, Privateer Press, has been a long time coming.
“Mythic Games produces the most incredible board games on the tabletop and they also run the most fantastic Kickstarter campaigns,” said Monsterpocalypse creator and Privateer Press owner, Matt Wilson, “and they’ve brought all their expertise and quality to this new range for Monsterpocalypse, reimagining it as an authentic board game that we know will excite thousands of new players who have not experienced Monsterpocalypse as a hobby game.”
Monsterpocalypse will launch on Kickstarter this fall with an expected delivery date of late 2022.
