Shootout at Zed's Set For Core Space Coming Next Month

Battle Systems has announced a new expansion for Core Space. It's Shootout at Zed's, and it's got a lot of new things for players to enjoy. There's new miniatures, new gear, and a new campaign that you can play through. If you're wanting some rootin', tootin', sci-fi action, you only have to wait about a month for it to hit store shelves.


From the website:

Shootout at Zed’s is the latest expansion for Core Space, our sci-fi miniatures game, and is released in September 2019. Read on to find out more.

Core Space is pretty open when it comes to gameplay. It can be a tight ‘board’ game sticking strictly to the core rules or using the grid on the floor for movement, or can be a looser dynamic skirmish game that will see you ducking down to the table to check your lines of sight and making the most of your effortless actions to dive for cover. With the advanced rules in place, anything goes – the game is fully customisable and can be played like an RPG, even using a GM if you wish!

My point is that Core Space has lots of moving parts and ways to play. Our Core Space expansions have therefore been structured to add value across the board. You can play Shootout at Zed’s as a standalone campaign, but every component in the box can also be integrated with the starter set to expand your gameplay.

This expansion zooms in on the criminal underworld of the Perseus Arm, focusing on the dastardly Zed and his gang of felons. Gangers are a brand-new NPC controlled by the game’s AI. Like Civilians, Gangers can be useful as a speed bump for the Purge, but unlike Civilians Gangers will attack you too!
