Even as the Justice League prepare to come together on the big screen, DC Comics' greatest heroes are heading to tabletops in a board game called "Justice League: Dawn of Heroes."
Publisher Abba Games announced it has received approval from Warner Bros. for the tabletop combat game in which two to six players split into teams of heroes or villains to fight for the fate of the world.
Here is the official announcement:
Play your favorite stories from DC Comics universe in this adventure game combat between 2-6 players. The game is divided into missions, each with several chapters. Players will be divided into 2 teams and will face to meet its objectives in each chapter. The winning team will have benefits for the final combat, face-to-face between the two teams to decide the fate of the world!
With many beloved characters from the DC Universe, every mission is strongly inspired by familiar stories from our favorite team of superheroes! Manage Batman, Wonder Woman and the rest of the Justice League to fight Darkseid, Lex Luthor and many other villains with the team of heroes. Or use your many resources to complete your evil plan with the team Thistledown, with the help of Joker, Black Manta, Cheetah and many others.
The characters have their own set of skills that will give them the edge needed to complete their goals. With custom mechanical control characters, thus giving a unique feel to each game hero to better reflect its incredible powers.
Each mission can be played as a campaign, solving each chapter and the final match in one session. But with the 'saving system' included in the game, you can play each strand separate and easily save your progress to finish your game another day!
Save the world with Justice League: Dawn of Heroes!
Abba Games will launch a Kickstarter campaign for the game later this year, with plans for initial distribution in 2017 in Europe. Perhaps if the crowdfunding effort is successful enough, "Justice League: Dawn of Heroes" will reach North American shortly thereafter.
