If you are at PAX - you will be one of the lucky few to be trying out the cooperative sequel to Tidal Blades Heroes of the Reef. Tidal Blades: Rise of the Unfolders is heading over to Kickstarter in the early stages of 2022.

As PAX unfolds, players have got an insight into the upcoming title that is going to be headed to Kickstarter in February. With playtests and interviews happening for the benefit of convention-goers!

However, for us sitting at home and in the comforts of our own sofas and giant fluffy oodies, there’s plenty of news flying around about the upcoming campaign-driven experience.

The first of the Tidal Blade series put 1-4 players into a card-drafting, dice-rolling arena to battle it out in a 5-day long tournament, whilst resource collecting and heading out to different islands to make the most of the fight. If successful then being rewarded as a prestigious young hero, the title of Tidal Blade.

The second in the series, Rise of the Unfolders takes a different approach to game style and mechanics. As the Tournament is over, players hold their title of Tidal Blade but in a new campaign-based narrative and cooperative adventure. As players enter a new arena of dangers, going into the fold and rescuing Old Guard Tidal Blades from peril. Journeying across the isles of Naviri with a more evolved purpose.

The board game has a total of 18 different scenarios in the box, adding to an overarching campaign. Still working closely with cards, however, this time players will be deck and pool building on a Nexus Grid to build abilities and combos for your chosen hero.

As the campaign spans over a plethora of different campaigns totalling 40+ hours of gameplay; there is lots of space for your character to grow. As players will level up their traits of their heroes, targetting Spirit, Focus, Resilience and Synergy to widen their items and skills for a more diverse stack of cards.

You can expect to meet some friendlies and unfriendlies along the different pathways of Naviri. With allies scattered across the map, and plenty of monsters and enemies to hack and slash through - there is plenty to attack with challenge and strategy, as players make their way closer to the fold.

Tidal Blades: Rise of the Unfolders will be headed to Kickstarter on February 22nd 2022. And if you haven’t had your chance to dip your toes in the waters of the fantasy islands of Naviri - you can get your hands on the first of the series as an add-on as part of the campaign. Or if you are interested in the lore and exploration - the recently announced official RPG will be heading over to the campaign too.

I personally am excited about an expansion of the game world. Providing more backstory for an ongoing series and the world in which it evolves. Did you play the first Tidal Blades title?
