Gears of War is a game which was originally developed by Epic Games and actually released onto the marketplace by Microsoft Game Studios as an Xbox game back in 2006. Well now the Gears of War board game is on it’s way.
The original video game saw the Delta Squad troops fighting to save the human planet from the enemy known as the Locust Horde. Overall the game was extremely popular on it’s initial release selling somewhere over the 3 million copies range in the first couple of months of going on sale. The question is, will the Gears of War board game be as popular?
The Gears of War board game has been designed by Corey Konieczka and allows up to 4 players to become a member of Delta Squadron, taking on the role of the Soldiers with the aim of working together to complete 7 missions. Whilst 7 missions may not seem like many at first these missions involve many different configurations and possibilities and so there is plenty f repeat playability. This fast paces strategy board game incorporates parts of the original Gears of War game as well as the Gears of War follow up, Gears of War 2.
According to Amazon.com the game will be released on the 31st August 2011, you can pre-order the Gears Of War The Board Game right here … but until then we’ll just have to watch this space.
