Steamforged heads to Kickstarter with new Resident Evil board game

Tabletop games publisher will launch new game based on Capcom’s survival horror series on April 28.

Tabletop games publisher, Steamforged Games is working once again with Capcom on a new Resident Evil board game, due to launch on April 28 on Kickstarter.

Following the success of Resident Evil 2: The Board Game, Steamforged will now bring the 1999 Playstation classic, Resident Evil 3, to the tabletop.

Based on the original video game, Resident Evil 3: The Board Game is a cooperative survival horror game for 1-4 players that can be experienced either through individual, one-shot scenarios, or as a 30+ hour campaign with an overarching storyline.

Taking control of characters like Jill Valentine and Carlos Oliveira, players will attempt to escape Raccoon City in the midst of a T-virus outbreak. All the while, the city danger level will be on the rise, the number of undead monsters will increase, and every decision will be crucial.

To survive, players must carefully manage resources, make intelligent and meaningful decisions, and be wary of curveballs thrown by the tension deck – a mechanic carried over from the RE2 board game which will surprise players with unexpected threats to replicate the terrifying suspense of the video game.

The board game’s design comes from Steamforged’s Sherwin Matthews, a self-proclaimed superfan of the franchise who also headed the design of Resident Evil 2: The Board Game.

“It’s a privilege and an honour to be working with Capcom once again to bring the horrors of Raccoon City to the tabletop,” said Mat Hart, creative director and co-founder of Steamforged Games. “Steamforged is proud of its proven ability to bring video game properties to life and lovingly craft them into high-quality board and card games.

“Resident Evil 3: The Board Game will surprise and challenge even the most hardcore RE fans. It will have players running from Nemesis like it’s 1999!”
