DARK SOULS™: The Roleplaying Game Collector’s Edition Book Revealed in New Trailer and Miniatures Confirmed
Only a limited number of the one-time-release Collector’s Edition core book will be available worldwide, with DARK SOULS™ character and enemy miniatures to follow later this year
Tuesday 8th February 16:00 UTC - Manchester, UK - Tabletop games creator and publisher Steamforged Games today revealed a special ‘Collector’s Edition’ of DARK SOULS™: The Roleplaying Game will be available for pre-order from 15:30 UTC on February 16, with only a limited number of copies available.
Unveiled for the first time in the trailer released today by Steamforged Games, the premium Collector’s Edition hardback core book will bind the same DARK SOULS™-enriched roleplaying content as the Standard Edition in an exclusive leather-look cover with embossed gold foil and gilt-edged pages.
The design is an homage to the DARK SOULS™ bonfires, creating a glowing ember effect when light runs over the gold foil and gilt edges.
Powered by bespoke fifth edition rules, both the Standard Edition and Collector’s Editions contain 500 pages covering everything players need to embark on roleplaying campaigns in the ruinous DARK SOULS™ universe, including bespoke character classes, a brand-new magic system, and a full bestiary teeming with memorable creatures from the video game.
The DARK SOULS™: The Roleplaying Game Standard Edition hardback core book is available for pre-order as of today.
Steamforged also confirmed a range of DARK SOULS™ roleplaying miniatures will be coming later this year, with box sets featuring recognisable player characters, iconic enemies, and terrifying bosses.
Mat Hart, Creative Director and Chief Creative Officer at Steamforged Games, said:
“DARK SOULS™: The Roleplaying Game really is a special one that deserves to take pride of place on the shelf of any roleplaying or DARK SOULS™ fan. Both the Standard and Collector’s Editions are gorgeously illustrated, hardback books designed to deliver as much in looks as they do in content. The Collector’s Edition takes that one step further with the exclusive leather-and-gold look designed to put players in mind of darkness and bonfires, creating something extra-special and limited edition to be treasured. Collectors of either edition will not be disappointed.”
Set to hit shelves in March 2022 in the U.K. and EU and May in the US, the Standard Edition of DARK SOULS™: The Roleplaying Game hardback core book can be pre-ordered from today at $49.95 / £44.99 / €44.95.
The Collector’s Edition hardback core book will follow the same schedule but only 5,000 copies exist worldwide. Only available direct from Steamforged Games, pre-orders for the Collector’s Edition will open 15:30 UTC on February 16 at $99.95 / £94.95 / €94.95.
About Steamforged Games
From small beginnings in the corner of a hobby gaming store in Stockport, Manchester, Steamforged Games has gone on to create tabletop adaptations of some of the biggest video games around.
The company’s history of adaptations began with the wildly successful DARK SOULS™ Board Game. Steamforged took the game to Kickstarter back in 2016, where it raised £3.7million followed by significant success at retail and is still one of the best-selling board games out there.
Since then, Steamforged’s catalogue has grown to include original tabletop roleplaying lines like Animal Adventures and Epic Encounters — which Forbes called the “Blue Apron [of] Dungeons & Dragons” — and popular board game versions of triple-A video games such as Monster Hunter: World, Resident Evil™ 1, 2, and 3, Horizon Zero Dawn™, and more, all well-received as authentic experiences true to the brand DNA.
Now the UK’s leading developer and publisher of licensed tabletop games, Steamforged is led by a love of the craft, a collective pride in what they create, and a mission to deliver compelling tabletop experiences that capture the emotions and inspire the imaginations of players around the world.
