Fantasy Flight Games To Co-Publish Siege of the Citadel

With just about two days left to go in their Kickstarter campaign, Modiphius has a major announcement about Siege of the Citadel. They’ll be teaming up with the folks over at Fantasy Flight Games who will be now be co-publishing the game.

As such, Fantasy Flight Games will be in charge of global publishing, retail distribution, localization, and translation of the retail edition of the game. Obviously, with Fantasy Flight’s reach, this means a potentially much wider audience for the game once it’s set to hit store shelves.

Modiphius and Cabinet Entertainment released a joint statement saying, “FFG’s global reach is unsurpassed in the hobby game industry and their expertise allows us the opportunity to focus on the game’s design and development. We’re thrilled to be working with them to bring Mutant Chronicles: Siege of the Citadel to friendly local game shops everywhere.”

The current Kickstarter campaign is more than 5x funded, with a lot of stretch goals unlocked. As I mentioned above, there’s only about 2 days left (give or take a couple hours) for you to get in on the campaign.

    With the GW games evaporating, FFG looked around and said, “OH SH*T! We need some grimdark sci-fi minis games to sell, stat!” Plus FFG actually had a Mutant Chronicles minis game about 8 years ago that they killed fairly quickly back in the day.

      I bet that if this goes well for them, there will be a new Doom Trooper LCG.

      The whole SoC has a lot of companies working on it- Modiphus and Cabinet at the helm, FF producing, a few extra goodies from Ninja Division and tie in stat cards for minis Prodos is making.

      By the way, the old game was really rocking- it was definitely among the best of its era of dungeon crawlers (It took some cues from Space Crusade, but really improved on them).

      The trouble with the old game was that the old minis were pretty bad, but the new ones look really good.

        Ah, the old Doomtrooper CCG. One of the hundreds of CCGs cranked out in the 90’s to capitalize on Magic’s success. It was terrible, and I recall picking up starter decks for dirt cheap on clearance once it was clear the CCG trend was dying.

          Yep, that’s the one. I never got around to playing it as I was drowning in the sea of ’90s CCGs at the time.

          I’m always a little surprised at how many incarnations Mutant Chronicles has taken.

          My favorite of their games, to be perfectly honest, was Siege of the Citadel, so I’m super happy about the new edition.
