FromSoftware's Bloodborne is reworked as a mini-board game by game maker CMON, and a new trailer for the PlayStation 4 exclusive tabletop port makes it very easy to visualize how it all works. 19659002] CMON has already released a tabletop card game based on Bloodborne created by award-winning game designer Eric M. Lang, who co-developed with Michael Shinall Bloodborne: The Board Game – but his new effort is packed with miniature replicas of the cruel beasts of the game and the hunters who kill them.
In a series of design journals, designer Michael Shinall said CMON's Bloodborne board game will not focus only on combat, but also on exploration and discovery. A "variable tile system" will try to restore that feeling, he said. Players will explore the city of Yarnham in a series of chapters.
"Basically, each chapter will list a specific number of tiles to use. usually the famous game sites, such as the Grand Cathedral or the Tomb of Oeden, and players must then take a series of random tiles and combine them into a (covert) stack, "Shinall wrote. "The players will have their starting point and from then on it's all about discovering the world. When the players move, they flip a tile, fill it out, and build the entire map while exploring.
CMON Plans Crowdfund Bloodborne: The Board Game through a campaign at Kickstarter. This effort is expected to begin on April 23.
