(Manchester, UK - 6th April, 2020) Tabletop games publisher Steamforged Games is once again working with Japanese video game giant Capcom on a brand new Resident Evil™ board game, set to launch April 28 on Kickstarter.
Following the success of Resident Evil™ 2: The Board Game, Steamforged will now bring the 1999 Playstation classic, Resident Evil™ 3, to the tabletop.
Based on the original video game, Resident Evil™ 3: The Board Game is a cooperative survival horror game for 1-4 players that can be experienced either through individual, one-shot scenarios, or as a 19+ hour campaign with an overarching storyline.
Taking control of iconic characters like Jill Valentine and Carlos Oliveira, players will attempt to escape Raccoon City in the midst of a T-virus outbreak.
All the while, the city danger level will be on the rise, the number of undead monsters will increase, and every decision will be crucial.
To survive, players must carefully manage resources, make intelligent and meaningful decisions, and be wary of curveballs thrown by the tension deck—a mechanic carried over from the RE2 board game which will surprise players with unexpected threats to replicate the terrifying suspense of the video game.
If the campaign reaches 2500 followers on Kickstarter before it launches on April 28, a Kickstarter-exclusive ‘Jill in Biker Gear’ miniature will be unlocked
The board game’s design comes from Sherwin Matthews of Steamforged, a self-proclaimed superfan of the franchise who also headed the design of Resident Evil™ 2: The Board Game.
Mat Hart, Creative Director and co-founder of Steamforged Games, said, “It’s a privilege and an honour to be working with Capcom once again to bring the horrors of Raccoon City to the tabletop.
“Steamforged is proud of its proven ability to bring video game properties to life and
lovingly craft them into high-quality board and card games. Resident Evil™ 3: The Board Game will surprise and challenge even the most hardcore RE fans. It will have players running from Nemesis like it’s 1999!”
Resident Evil 3™: The Board Game will launch on Kickstarter on April 28, 2020. Fans can follow the campaign on Kickstarter to be notified when it goes live.
