For a time, the humans of Sera knew peace... then Emergence Day came. The Locust horde arrived without warning, and countless horrors spilled forth from their underground burrows. The Coalition of Ordered Governments (COG) struggled to fend off the subterranean threat, but their defenses were quickly crushed. With billions dead, humans turned their weapons of mass destruction on their own cities to deny the enemy control. Now the long struggle against overwhelming odds approaches one final, desperate stand.
A video overview of Gears of War™: The Board Game is now available on our support page! Check it out, then join us at Gen Con 2011, where you can be among the first to demo Corey Konieczka’s latest design.
Keep watching for more on Gears of War: The Board Game, and look for it on store shelves later this quarter!
Gears of War: The Board Game, designed by Corey Konieczka, is based on the wildly popular third-person shooter by Epic Games. One to four players take on the roles of COG soldiers cooperating to destroy the Locust horde, and must work together to complete missions against an ingeniously challenging and varied game system.
Hey FFG there's is a spelling mistake at 1:13 of the video, the card on the left handside states, "Toika Heavy MG" but it should be "Troika..."
I also have to say that FFG's video previews are getting better all the time. Nice job guys.
Interesting. Too bad we couldn't have seen a revamp of Space Hulk like this.
Really interesting. Now for the manual... :)
DOOM on steriods and without a monster player. Looks interesting
Definite day 1 buy!:)
I like the cover mechanic.
I wonder how they simulate the lag.
Yiippee! Must get!
Looks really good. I love DOOM, but this looks much better! Glad it has dice combat!
Wow! This game looks extremely fun! It's Descent without an overlord or Arkham Horror without...something... :-)
Anyway...this is a must-have for me. Any release date yet?
