"As huge Horizon Zero Dawn™ fans, we could not be more excited to be given the honour of developing a board game which will allow fans to explore this incredible world in a new and unique way,” said Mat Hart, Creative Director and Co-founder of Steamforged Games. “Horizon Zero Dawn™ represents an incredible achievement in the video game world and a much-beloved universe for fans all over the world. Many of the staff at Steamforged have been in love with Horizon Zero Dawn™ since it was first released, and so have an intimate understanding of what makes it so appealing and enthralling. With this game, we’re going to give players a compelling new way to play and experience this amazing video game.”

The game will be coming to Kickstarter later this year and it will be interesting to see what avenue they go down for this post-apocalyptic world.

A friend of mine who is a big Horizon Zero Dawn fan has been talking about it maybe focusing in on the Hunter's Lodge and using that as the backdrop for the game's focus. That would certainly offer up a chance for players to delve into the game together rather than it all being focused towards Aloy.

I am hazarding to guess that the miniatures you see above are in the same 32mm scale that we've seen from Steamforged's other games but I could indeed be wrong and this is focused in on a smaller scale for a wider conflict/hunt. But, it could very well be a bit of a 'crawl' game with a twist.

We shall have to see what the Kickstarter brings but I imagine we'll learn more about the game as we move closer to its launch date.

What direction would you like to see the game take?
