Fantasy Flight Games released the original Doom board game back in 2004, and now they’re back with a redesigned version based on the Bethesda reboot that came out this year:
Doom: The Board Game is a tactical combat game for 2 to 5 players, inspired by Bethesda’s blockbuster video game. The asymmetrical gameplay pits 1 invader player and their arsenal of bloodthirsty demons against 1 to 4 elite marines, each equipped with a customizable deck of intimidating weapons and hardy armor, numerous lives, and the ability to Glory Kill weakened enemies within range. Every mission presents a specialized map, unique rules, various items for retrieval, and objectives for both invaders and marines. Whichever role each player takes, they will have to carefully plan every move in order to achieve their given objective. Descend into the hellish landscape of Doom to join the epic struggle between demon and marine.
The game is available for pre-order now with shipping slated for November 2016.
