Horizon Zero Dawn captured the essence of combat in the game, and some really liked the mechanics but missed out on the exploration part that the main game offered. With this announcement I’m interested to see what they have included in terms of exploration off the back of their recent development of the Elden Ring Board Game. For those who are looking to add to their collection of miniatures from Aloy’s world, it seems like an easy backing decision. I’ll be interested to see how they emulate the world of Forbidden West and bring it to life. It’s looking like a November 21st campaign start date and I’ll see if we can ask politely and get the lead designer Fraser on the podcast.
Horizon Forbidden West: Seeds of Rebellion – Coming Soon..
Horizon Forbidden West: Seeds of Rebellion is a new board game for 1-4 players. It builds on the critically acclaimed engine first developed for the Horizon Zero Dawn board game to deliver a fully cooperative, narrative-driven experience.
In the distant lands of a far-future Earth, colossal machines rule and humans exist in pre-industrial tribes. Your adventure will take you to the majestic yet deadly Forbidden West, before Aloy’s arrival. Much of this frontier is the territory of the warlike Tenakth. Though the tribe is currently united under the great Chief Hekarro, a rebellion is fomenting in the dark corners of this mysterious place. This potential insurrection threatens the hard-won, fragile peace between the Tenakth’s three clans.
You and your fellow Marshals must uncover, investigate, and fight this threat before unnecessary blood is shed and the fate of the Clan Lands is changed for generations to come. Along the way, you’ll explore the vibrant world, earn powerful equipment, and undertake life-or-death quests, testing your skills against an ever-present menace: the deadly, ever-evolving machines.
Will you fall to the spear, the claw, or the toxic blight? Or will you rise against the odds together and unravel the untold mysteries of the Forbidden West?
