Steamforged Games have revealed more details of their Dark Souls Board Game which is coming soon to Kickstarter. They also shared this image of two bosses from the game, Smough & Ornstein

These are a pair of deadly foes and they are pretty hard to take down. Fantastic looking characters though and certainly an interesting gauntlet to throw down as to the quality of the models we could be seeing. Hopefully we’ll get past renders soon!

What’s The Game About?

Here’s what we know from their latest preview…

“Designed from the ground up, the Dark Souls board game is a brutally hard exploration miniatures game for 1-4 players. Prepare to die. Because this will be the hardest board game you have ever played.”

The idea of the gameplay is that it will be part of a ‘fast setup and long reveal’ where you will be exploring ruins and battling enemy bosses and other creatures using strategy and clever management of stamina.

“The game will ship with numerous boss and mini-boss encounters, and as mentioned above, will utilize an innovative behavior mechanic that will mean no two encounters are ever the same, thus giving the game near infinite replayability.”

All of the Dark Souls world will be available to them so that means hopefully some of the foes from Dark Souls III too. I for one cannot wait to see where this game goes!
