Rebellion, one of Europe’s largest independent creative studios, has announced its brand new board game division, Rebellion Unplugged.
The first game from the new offshoot will be Sniper Elite the Board Game, based on the studio’s bestselling series.
Headed up by Duncan Molloy, previously the Founder and Creative Lead of the board game line at Osprey Games, Rebellion Unplugged will release new physical games and collectibles based on the company’s diverse and extensive collection of properties. Several games are already in the works.
Among many others, its library of IPs includes the beloved sci-fi universes of 2000 AD, the upcoming Evil Genius 2, and the multi-million selling Zombie Army series – the next instalment of which, Zombie Army 4: Dead War, comes to PS4, Xbox One and PC on February 4th.
An early version of Sniper Elite the Board Game will be playable at PAX Unplugged this December. More details will be unveiled before it launches on Kickstarter early next year, and more games are due to be unveiled throughout 2020.
“We’re absolutely delighted to be launching Rebellion Unplugged,” said Rebellion CEO and founder Jason Kingsley OBE. “My brother Chris and I have been making video games for more than 25 years, and our love of the medium has its roots in our childhood love of board games. We’ve got so many great games and comic book heroes and universes to draw from too, so it’s going to be a lot of fun.”
