We're less than two weeks from the official launch of Beyond the Gates of Antares by Warlord Games. It certainly has a lot of odd twists and turns along the way. Starting out as a Kickstarter that didn't quite make it. Then went underground for a while. Then picked up by Warlord and released as a free Beta rules set that people could leave feedback about. Minis started coming out for it. Then, with the official version coming out, the beta was taken down. Well, those that have been following along the entire time, or even if you've just had a passing notice of it, the final release is almost upon us. And Warlord Games wants to start it off in a big way.
They'll be holding a big Launch Event at Wayland Games in Hockley and they want anyone and everyone to show up. You'll be able to grab demos of the game, participate in open-play, check out the studio showcase of miniatures, and talk with the design team about the rules set that they've put together.
The event is free, but if you want the VIP treatment, then you can pick up a VIP ticket. The pass comes with a free mini and access to a VIP seminar where Rick Priestley will sit in on things (electronically, so it would seem) and particpate as well.
The launch event is taking place on November 7th.
