Steamforged Games Brings Resident Evil to the Tabletop


Resident Evil 2 Board game is going to be live on Kickstarter soon.

Steamforged Games is thrilled to announce an exciting new partnership with Capcom to bring the iconic Resident Evil™ 2 video game to the board gamers of the world. Building on the success of previous titles including “Guild Ball” and “Dark Souls: The Board Game”, Steamforged Games will be launching this latest game, “Resident Evil™ 2: The Board Game” via Kickstarter in late Autumn 2017.

Thus starts the announcement on the Steamforged website.

Steamforged Games just bought out Dark Souls after their record breaking kickstarter, but are possibly better known for their fantasy football game Guild Ball.

At Scifind.com we are really looking forward to this release BUT we are slightly wary that it might be very similar to CMON’s Zombicide games.

I am sure though that Steamforged can do Resident Evil justice in miniature form and just hope that images of the minis start coming through soon.

There will be updates and IMAGES of miniatures coming soon. Follow @scifind on twitter or facebook for details.

Resident Evil 2

Known as Biohazard 2 in Japan is the sequel to the original Resident Evil survival horror game. Originally published in 1998 Resident Evil 2 will see it’s 20th Anniversary before the Resident Evil 2 board game is published.

Dark Souls Board Game

Ok. So these are early renders but they look to be in a good clear cut style, with enough detail to make interesting characters, but still be a single piece plastic mini. Cannot wait to get my hands on the final minis.
