If you're getting into the Sci-Fi mood then you might want to check out Nordic Weasel and Ivan Sorensen's Five Parsecs From Home, a new solo wargaming experience that is now available from the team at Modiphius.

Five Parsecs From Home is available to pre-order now ahead of a May release. You will get the PDF right away with a physical release later on down the line. As a "Solo Adventure Wargame", you will assemble a "ragtag crew of galactic trailblazers", exploring the stars and getting into scrapes.

Battles play out through procedurally generated combinations of enemies, weapons, battlefield circumstances and objectives. You might even find some rivals who are looking to take you on.

As a solo wargaming experience, the joy is going to be in levelling up and continuing to expand your crew between missions. You'll be able to build on your character and the crew as a whole, telling their story and looking for new adventures to undertake.

Five Parsecs From Home works with any miniatures and you'll only need a handful of them to get started. Grab some dice, your old collection of Sci-Fi miniatures and dive right in.

This new version of the game, released by Modiphius, contains all of the original material by Nordic Weasel but comes with options for making robot characters. You'll also find an entire section dedicated to upgrading your starship with expansion modules.

There are also a bunch of new difficulty levels for you to encounter, ways to Game Master scenarios as an RPG-like campaign and also a full solo campaign for you to dive into. I do like the idea that it comes with a solo campaign right out of the gate. It means that you can snap this up and venture into the game right away.

Are you going to be giving this one a go?
