Steamforged Games are the brains behind the operation – previous work includes Resident Evil’s board game and the excellent Dark Souls board game – Horizon Zero Dawn’s transition to board game will also receive the full support of Sony Interactive Entertainment Europe and Guerrilla, so I expect a highly polished game with miniatures that do the game proud.
“As huge Horizon Zero Dawn™ fans, we could not be more excited to be given the honour of developing a board game which will allow fans to explore this incredible world in a new and unique way,” said Mat Hart, Creative Director and Co-founder of Steamforged Games.
“Horizon Zero Dawn™ represents an incredible achievement in the videogame world and a much-beloved universe for fans all over the world. Many of the staff at Steamforged have been in love with Horizon Zero Dawn™ since it was first released, and so have an intimate understanding of what makes it so appealing and enthralling. With this game we’re going to give players a compelling new way to play and experience this amazing video game.”
As a huge board game fan, I am super excited to see another video game make the jump from pixel to physical. The campaign will get going on kickstarter – I can’t imagine they will struggle getting support.
