It’s here, folks! The moment you’ve all been waiting for! The Zombicide: Black Plague Kickstarter has launched. In this iteration, the game takes you back to a fantasy Middle Ages where evil Necromancers are causing a Zombie uprising. It’s up to the intrepid Survivors to not only live in this world, but they must be on the lookout for any Necromancers in the area and take them out, lest there be more and more Zombies drawn to the area.
There are two pledge levels (except for the Early Bird level). The first gets you the Black Plague game as well as the Hero Box-1, which adds 5 more Survivors to the available pool for your game. From there, you have the $150 pledge level where you not only get the Black Plague box, but also the first expansion, Wulfsburg. You also get the Hero Box-1. Also, for the $150 level, you get the exclusive Gowan Survivor mini.
Both levels will also include all applicable stretch goals (so any freebies that show up).
Zombies! Zombies everywhere! Go and pledge now.
Update: Well, it seems that everyone was pretty excited about this new version. The Kickstarter servers were a bit overwhelmed initially, and some people were having trouble getting to the campaign. Don’t worry, though, as the problem seems to have been resolved.
Update 2: And the campaign’s good and funded already, quickly blowing past Zombicide: Rue Morgue’s first day of $450k in less than two hours!
