Default Dark Souls Board Game Headed to Kickstarter

Quote:
The Dark Souls board game will launch on Kickstarter this month.

Dark Souls III is just around the corner, but if that's not enough for you, then maybe a board game based on the notoriously challenging series will be. The Dark Souls board game hits Kickstarter this month.

Steamforged Games announced on its website that it has partnered with Bandai Namco Entertainment to launch the crowdfunding campaign and develop the board game.

"As Dark Souls fans, we could not be more excited to be given the honour of developing a board game that embraces everything that makes Dark Souls the deep, compelling game experience that it is," the board game developer said.

Steamforged has had experience with Kickstarter in the past. The tabletop maker held a campaign for its medieval football game, Guild Ball. The campaign was successful; it exceeded its £30,000 ($42,352.50) goal, raising a total of £93,691 ($132,268.27).

Details on the Dark Souls board game's campaign have not been revealed. We'll keep you updated as more information becomes available.

In related news, the designer of tabletop games based on Star Wars and XCOM: Enemy Unknown announced last month that they are working on a Bloodborne card game. It's described by the designer as "a card game based on the Chalice Dungeon runs, where players compete to kill monsters and take their blood."

A shame FFG didn't get the license. The minis would probably be amazing.

The Kickstarter will start on April 19th. I fully expect this to make a stupid amount of money. Even if you don't play boardgames, the collector's aspect of this game is probably going to be too much for some of you.

Dark Souls™ - The Board Game is a strategically challenging, deeply immersive combat exploration game for 1-4 players set in the Dark Souls™ universe. Players choose from a number of core character classes and explore dangerous locations full of monsters, treasures, and deadly boss fights.



Designed specifically for the Dark Souls™ universe and introducing a number of innovative gameplay mechanics, with world-class miniatures faithful to the rich universe, this game delivers an experience that captures the very essence of the original video games.

We don’t like complicated Kickstarters, so we’ve made this one as simple as possible. There is just one pledge level for gamers, and one pledge for retail stores.

As the campaign progresses, some stretch goals will unlock an ‘Add-On’ which is an optional item to purchase; to buy one of these, simply increase your pledge amount. This also drives the campaign total up thereby unlocking even more stuff!

The best bit is that every 'non Add-On' stretch goal that gets unlocked during the campaign will be included in your pledge! So the more people that support the project, the more goals get unlocked, the more value we can squeeze in, and the bigger the box we're going to need!

Appearance wise it looks like Mage Knight. With "The Core Game" including all of that, will they sell booster packs and cash in big??
