Rebellion Unplugged, the board game division of UK-based video game publisher and developer Rebellion (Rogue Trooper Redux, Sniper Elite 4), have announced a Kickstarter campaign for a Sniper Elite tabletop game.
Those playing as the sniper can use equipment cards and lay traps to aid them in their mission, while defenders can call upon specialist soldiers from amongst the ranks of their squads, such as fast moving scouts, healing medics and attack-focused Jager troopers.
The game has been designed by David Thompson (War Chest, Castle Itter) and Roger Tankersley, and has artwork and miniatures designed by the video game series’ concept art team.
Backer rewards include a solo mode, the Eagles Nest expansion pack, and a unique Hitler teste-kill miniature that recreates one of the series most iconic moments.
“It’s a privilege to bring the hugely popular Sniper Elite video game series to the tabletop, with brilliant designers, beautiful art and lovingly crafted miniatures,” said Rebellion Unplugged head Duncan Molloy. “Sniper Elite the Board Game delivers all the tension and excitement about the video games. We can’t wait for players to get their hands on it!”
At the time of writing, the Kickstarter campaign currently has amassed almost half of its £22,000 goal from 196 backers.
