In partnership with Bandai Namco, the company SteamForged Games has created a Kickstarter campaign to set up the project of a board game based on the Dark Souls license. The proposal was a hit and the target was reached in just 3 minutes.
While we are enjoying Dark Souls 3 for a few days on our PCs and gaming consoles, we learn that a board game is also in anticipation. Offered by the company SteamForged Games and supported by the publisher Bandai Namco, Dark Souls: The Board Game has enjoyed a fundraising campaign on the Kickstarter platform.
Until then, there was no surprise. However, the project has largely enthusiastic players, so much so that the goal of $50,000 was reached in just 3 minutes. Currently SteamForged Games has raised nearly $500,000, which will allow them to produce a quality game, both in terms of materials and in terms of gameplay.
The board game is obviously inspired by the RPG game of FromSoftware, offering an exploration game from 1 to 4 players. It will be possible to create a character based on available classes and then embark on the exploration of environments filled with monsters, treasures and bosses to slay.
The game already provides a certain quality, with the availability of neat figures: the characters, half-bosses and bosses. The cards wearing the enticing artworks are also equally appropriate.
The SteamForged Games estimated a release of this game board in April 2017, but that date could change depending on the state of development.
