Deadzone: Magnetar // Mantic Games

Since Containment Protocols were declared, the beleaguered city has attracted attention from all over the galaxy. Although billed as an ‘entertainment planet’, if you scratch below the glittering surface, there’s a much darker side to Magnetar that’s ripe for the taking.

Over the coming weeks, you’ll have the opportunity to choose your faction and battle it out to take control of Magnetar’s various districts. Each week Mantic will be unveiling a new district in the city to battle over with some (optional) narrative rules available for that location, before ending in a dramatic finale for the future of Magnetar.

CAMPAIGN SCHEDULE

  • Week 1 – 16th May – Deadzone Campaign Launch / Location 1 Revealed / Results Submission Open
  • Week 2 – 23rd May – Location 2 Revealed
  • Week 3 – 30th May – Location 3 Revealed
  • Week 4 – 6th June – Location 4 Revealed
  • Week 5 – 13th June – Deadzone Campaign Ends / Firefight Finale Launch
  • Week 6 – 20th June – Firefight Finale Ends / Results Data Compiled and Announced

Deadzone Free Rules // Mantic Games

To coincide with the campaign people can download the basic Deadzone rules. That doesn't mean that you're only going to get part of the rules though, it is the complete rule book but you won't have the background stories that go with it or the force list book. You can get around that by popping over to Easy Army and creating your Lists there which means as long as you have some d8 you can go right ahead and play with whatever minis you have to hand.

I'm a big fan of Deadzone and Firefight, both the universe they inhabit and the rules that support them are extremely good and with each new release or iteration they are expanding the universe more and more. I hope they manage to purge the infestation and lift the Deadzone designation as I still have to play out some matches of Dreadball on the Galactic Tour Circuit.

When the Veer-myn came, Magnetar City simply wasn’t prepared.
