Delve Beneath The Surface…
In The Undercity players take on the role of heroes and adventurers as part of the mercenary outfit known as the Black River Irregulars. You will be hunting through the damp and dank underground of Corvis battling all manner of monsters and weird creations in the hopes of stopping whatever foul plot awaits the world above.
The game is played out like a campaign with your heroes hopefully gaining in experience and finding new weapons to use against the dark forces controlled by the Cephalyx. You will be working as a complete team against the game itself so it’s a proper full on co-operative experience.
A game like this obviously has to come with a lot of different components and this is just a quick look at what’s on offer. First off I think we all want to see what the models are going to be right?
As you can see the models look fantastic and each of them is going to be a one part model ready to use out of the box. The heroes look superb (including the Gobber running with a Light Warjack!) and the amount of enemies that are popping up looks intense. I can’t wait to face off against those purple boss creatures.
Your heroes will be levelling up and buying new cards and abilities to use during the brutal combat we’ve come to know and love from Privateer Press.
As you can see above the range of different components is vast. Privateer Press regularly don’t do anything by halves so I’m reckoning that the quality of the components is going to be top notch.
I particularly like the look of the game tiles that while seemingly featureless appear to have a level of depth to them which is interesting. It would be interesting to see them potentially bring out some pieces of 3D terrain alongside the actual options presented in 2D here but that could also be a nice hobby project!
Will you go delving into The Undercity?
