The game is based on the world-renowned Chronicles of Hate by Adrian Smith and will see players take control of their own tribe in an effort to survive and thrive in a new, incredibly violent world order.
Conflict is everywhere, battles are glorious and the game can be played across campaigns or single clashes.
Tribe members may fall in battle, may be dragged back to the safe haven of their village or even taken to their enemies torture chambers.
Those who are unfortunate enough to be captured may pray to meet their demise in their enemies “oven” rather than living out the rest of their lives in agony.
HATE promises to be a truly brutal game and the miniatures shown off so far certainly show that off.
CMON released a full statement on what you can expect with the coming campaign. You can read it below:
If HATE is Kickstarter exclusive, does that mean I can’t buy it anywhere else?
Yes and no. HATE will not be regularly available through traditional channels after the Kickstarter; however, it is available as normal to our CMON Play retail members (and thus their customers) through the Kickstarter retail pledge; and it will be available at conventions CMON attends while supplies last.
I’m a retailer, and want to carry HATE at my store. How can I do that?
In early 2017, CMON launched the CMON Play program in North America, allowing members and their customers to take part in our Kickstarters by offering them full access to the campaign, including all Kickstarter exclusives and add-ons. The HATE Kickstarter campaign will be no different.
If you want to carry HATE in your store but you’re not a CMON Play member, please read more about the program here or contact us at email@example.com for more information.
When the HATE Kickstarter launches January 16 at 3:00PM EST, we will begin accepting retail pledges through a special email address opened at that time and announced on www.cmon.com/play
Will HATE be available in multiple languages?
No. HATE will only be offered in English through the Kickstarter campaign. However, like CMON’s other campaigns, anyone in the world can support the campaign and receive the game.
Why is HATE Kickstarter exclusive?
Our ultimate goal with HATE is to offer a game that remains as true as possible to the source material: Adrian Smith’s Chronicles of HATE graphic novels. As you might guess from the name, the world of HATE is not a happy or peaceful one and includes a lot of mature content. We know not everyone will find this type of experience pleasant, so instead of stripping out the atmosphere, we are going direct to those who will want this type of gaming experience, including our retailers through CMON Play.
All in all, I’m really excited to see this game and where CMON are headed under the steer of Eric Lang.
Does HATE get your blood pumping to play?
