Multiplayer Battles! And a terrifying Mercenary!

Hail Survivors!

With the help of the Tribe of Sarrassa Optional Buy the campaign is growing at a nice pace. Make sure to check this exotic tribe:

 

And so we have unlocked not only the extra board but the final miniature of the Um'Gorr tribe!

 

That wraps up the Tribe of Um'Gorr, meaning all backers will get this complete full tribe added to their box

All the figures of the Tribe of Um'Gorr.

Now let's continue unlocking the contents necessary to play 2 battles at the same time. But that's not all, we're also adding something major to the game, at the request of our backers:

When we reach $690k all backers will get an extra set of 6 Dice, two extra sets of 13 Counter Bases, and an extra set of the 5 core Scenario Dashboards. But that's not all, we're also adding another 2 Scenario Dashboards containing 4 brand new scenarios for Multiplayer Battles, as well as rules for this new game mode!

Yes, we have heard your feedback and so we are hard at work to create an optional set of rules that will allow players to engage in battles involving 3 or 4 tribes in the same massive battles. Taking advantage of the extra board and extra components we're unlocking, these epic battles will play quite differently from the usual. The core of the Chronicle will still involve one player clashing against another player, but these optional rules will allow players to enter these massive battles at certain points of the Chronicle. These rules are still in development, so we cannot delve too deep into specifics, but we intend to offer 2 on 1 battles, 2 on 2 battles, and free for all battles!

2 vs 2 - Allied Tribes struggle to complete objectives together, having to decide together who will focus on which mission. Will they forego one mission and obliterate the other tribe? Maybe one defends the Huts while the other goes for the Interest tokens...

2 vs 1 - One Tribe struggles to stay alive while being attacking by 2 other allied Tribes. Will the Plateaus and Trees give enough advantage to survive the onslaught? Will this lone Tribe perish against the alliance of two hateful enemies?

Free for All - Enemy Tribes found themselves interested in the same Territory. There is only one way to decide that, fighting against each other to the death.

And let's go ahead and reveal the Stretch Goal after that. How about a terrifying Mercenary?

When we reach $700k all backers will get Maw, the Terror from the Deep, including his large figure and Mercenary card!

The nightmarish Maw, known as The Terror from the Ashes, is said to have been raised by the fire cabal of shamans in the ash lands. This abomination grew beyond their power to control and now rages with unquenchable hunger and fury. Getting this beast to join your Tribe will not be easy, but the rewards would be well worth it. 

Maw's presence is so terrifying that he's actually able to scare hardened warriors out of his way. He may spend Savagery tokens to force nearby enemies to move out of his way, clearing his path to destruction. And destruction is what he's able to inflict, with the ability to turn a Wild result into 3 Hits!

      The Maw looks wicked, it would also make an awsome abomination and/or wandering monster. +1 for Black Plague/Massive Darkness crossover as an optional add-on.

      This is the best we have seen so far! Completely different from the rest and more terrifying! This is what we have been waiting for, stretch goals that make you go WOW!

      @Petteri Heino: The Multiplayer Battles will be an optional rule. You'll be able to play the game as strictly 1x1 if you prefer.

      This is much more what I expected from this game! Awesome!

      Now let's break the million dollar mark with Zombicide/Massive Darkness card pack add ons!

      I think you are listening too much of the feedback. The game doesn't need multiplayer scenarios.

      But if you promise doing them well and without making a mess in the campaign. Then i dont mind if you put the rules together :)

      Love the games from these guys but very disappointed to see things like extra players divided into multiple stretch goals. As if the extra tribes would ever not be complete. Come on guys give some real incentive and not just plastic tokens. The fans pay a lot for these games so make it exciting not just the same stuff over and over.

      @Kyle Dalrymple
      The update had nothing to do with game boards other then unlocking a second one. I would love to see a giant battle field for 2 v 2 or free for all

      HOLY CRAP!! YEESSSS!!!

      So, considering how brutal this setting can be... I'm curious if they overlooked a 3v1.

      @RX-BOXSKING
      Isn't adding multiple boards together to make one giant board like 85% of what this update was about?

    24. Bart - Miremarsh pointy stick seller on

      Agree with Steams!
      Most of the big players deserve a place as abomination in Zombicide.
      And some of the smaller ones can even go for a survivor.... although they look pretty brutal and aggressive.

      Even as an add-on it would be great!
