Fans of Apex Legends, the popular hero shooter game, will soon be able to take the action from their screens to their tabletops with the upcoming release of Apex Legends: The Board Game. The game is the result of a long-term licensing partnership between Glass Cannon Unplugged and Genuine Entertainment with Electronic Arts Inc. and Respawn Entertainment.
The game, which will debut on Kickstarter on May 17, 2023, is a highly competitive, tactical team vs. team miniatures game for 2-4 players, with the possibility of adding more players through expansions. Each player takes on the role of a unique Legend, with the objective being to eliminate the opposing team. The gameplay takes place in a fully immersive, three-dimensional environment, just like the original game, and every decision counts as players must modify their tactics to outmaneuver their opponents.
Apex Legends: The Board Game is designed to be accessible to new board gamers while offering enough depth and scale to satisfy core players, including those interested in tournament and organized play. The game is the brainchild of Glass Cannon Unplugged, a tabletop game studio founded by seasoned video game industry veterans and life-long tabletop gamers. Their first release, Frostpunk: The Board Game, became one of the most-funded Kickstarter tabletop campaigns in history.
The upcoming Kickstarter campaign for Apex Legends: The Board Game will feature a limited-time promotional event with exclusive content for backers to enjoy.
