the massive news is finally out, Fantasy Flight Games are going to co-publish Siege of the Citadel with us (Modiphius & Cabinet Entertainment). To celebrate we're giving all Doomtrooper Pledges and Dark Legion Pledges a bonus of a Bloodberet version of McBride!
Read the full press release below but what this means is solid support in to retail to ensure the base game gets everywhere, FFG's awesome product support, localisations in to other languages and much more. The retail edition will of course come sometime AFTER Kickstarter backers get their copies.
We do not yet know which localised editions they will do and much of this will be worked out after the Kickstarter is completed. Fantasy Flight Games are sending out this press release to all their contacts right now and posting it on their website so we expect to reach hundreds of thousands of new potential backers who will want to get in on the amazing deal which is now worth $369! and includes 100 miniatures!
MUTANT CHRONICLES: SIEGE OF THE CITADEL SECURES DEAL FOR CO-PUBLISHING, GLOBAL DISTRIBUTION, AND LOCALIZATION WITH FANTASY FLIGHT GAMES.
Today Modiphius Entertainment, publisher of the Achtung! Cthulhu, Mutant Chronicles, Conan, Infinity, and John Carter of Mars roleplaying games, and Cabinet Entertainment (Conan the Barbarian, Kull of Atlantis, Solomon Kane, Mutant Chronicles, Mutant: Year Zero, Kult) announced a new partnership with Fantasy Flight Games for the global publishing, retail distribution, localization, and translation of the Mutant Chronicles: Siege of the Citadel miniatures board game.
In a joint statement issued by Fredrik Malmberg, president and CEO of Cabinet Entertainment and Chris Birch, publishing director of Modiphius Entertainment, “FFG’s global reach is unsurpassed in the hobby game industry and their expertise allows us the opportunity to focus on the game’s design and development. We’re thrilled to be working with them to bring Mutant Chronicles: Siege of the Citadel to friendly local game shops everywhere.”
Mutant Chronicles: Siege of the Citadel has currently raised more than $280,000 in a highly successful Kickstarter campaign with more than 2200 backers and three days to go. The retail version of Siege of the Citadel will be released worldwide after the delivery of the Kickstarter rewards, which are due to be shipped Q4 2017.
Siege of the Citadel, originally designed by Richard Borg and published by Target Games and Pressman Toys in the 1990s, was one of the first games of its kind to offer character development and the unique rotating Dark Legion player, among other groundbreaking ideas. Conceived by Sweden’s gaming powerhouse Target Games, Siege of the Citadel was advertised on television in the US and hundreds of gamers still own much loved copies across the world. This new edition reboots the classic game with balanced and updated rules, 40 new sculpted minis, new double-sided tiles, new creatures, and an A-List design team of Richard Borg, Eric M. Lang and Kevin Wilson.
To his friend a man
a friend shall prove,
To him and the friend of his friend;
But never a man
shall friendship make
With one of his foeman's friends.
