Modiphius Entertainment revealed that they will be publishing new indie creator tabletop titles under their Via Modiphius co-publishing program. If you're not familiar with the program, this system allowed independent creators access to Modiphius' extensive retail and digital distribution network through a special partnership, as the company provides support through social media and PR. The next two games on the way are Five Leagues From The Borderlands and Battlespace, which will be joining their library including Index Card RPG Master Edition, Viking Death Squad, Five Parsecs from Home, and Rangers of Shadow Deep. Both Battlespace and Five Leagues From The Borderlands will be available for pre-order this holiday season. We have more info about both of them below.
Designed by Robert Salters, Battlespace is an ultra-modern military tabletop solo game that is designed to be easy to learn and quick to play. A player starts by selecting soldiers to form a fireteam that will enter a combat zone to achieve their mission's objectives. A fireteam can go into the fight with just their basic kit, or they can be outfitted with additional gear to make them more useful for specific missions. Once fireteams hit the battlefield, the challenge really begins as enemy AI takes all of the guesswork out of movement and positioning, creating fluid, and deadly, situations. Each enemy force offers up a different challenge as every enemy element possesses unique tactics and abilities.
In the RPG-lite adventure wargame Five Leagues From The Borderlands, designed by Ivan Sorensen, players will assemble a warband of hard-scrabble adventurers fighting to reclaim the land from the sinister forces that threaten to envelop it in darkness. The game offers procedurally generated fantasy campaigns featuring skirmish miniatures battles where you hunt down your foes, sneak into enemy camps, crawl through underground cavern complexes, track down terrifying monsters, and engage in multi-stage quests. While you adventure, the game world will fill in your own personal map with locations to explore!
