Fantasy Flight Games releases their board game of fierce sci-fi battles, Nexus Ops.

From their website:

Nexus Ops, the sci-fi board game of fierce combat and covert operations for 2-4 players, is now on sale at your local retailer and on our webstore !

An alien moon. The rarest of resources.

In Nexus Ops, four corporations vie for control of an alien moon and its deposits of rubium, the rare energy source necessary to fuel all of humanity’s most advanced technologies. While their troops wage war, their engineers establish rubium mines, and their scientists explore the lunar terrain, using powerful technologies to subjugate the moon’s indigenous life forms.

Players must explore the alien moon, secure their rubium mines, and launch soldiers and alien species at their foes in ferocious battles. You get points by winning battles and by completing your corporation’s secret missions. The first player to twelve points seizes control of the moon and its rubium and wins the game!

Bold new battle plans

This new edition of the classic game comes with detailed plastic figures, stunning art, and a clarified new rulebook, as well as eleven optional variants to challenge players of all levels and provide a massive boost to the game’s replay value. You and your opponents can race to the monolith in King of the Hill mode, face the peril of the deadly Vortex, or introduce a full set of alternate unit powers!

Read more about Nexus Ops and these exciting variants in our previews on the new Vortex tile, extra exploration tokens, and the fierce battles raging between the corporations and their quest for lunar domination. You can even go one step further and download the rules from our support page, but be warned: access to such classified materials may put you directly in the crosshairs of rival corporations.

A hotly-contested moon

The race for rubium has commenced. Four corporations and only one moon–things are about to get red hot in Nexus Ops! Head to your local retailer to pick up your copy today, or order it online from our webstore .

  • I have to say that I’m sad that the pieces are no longer translucent multicolor plastic. FFG brings such an awesome production value but I think the old pieces were a touch cooler.

  • At first I thought it was a game on VOR: The Maelstrom universe… it looked like a growler 😛
