Modiphius is Working on OFFICIAL Fallout TRPG
For any fans of Fallout, this press release just came in. I think the artwork looks awesome and it could be fun to run games in a post–apocalyptic and retro-futuristic setting with some dark humor thrown in here and there.
Modiphius entertainment to Develop OFFICIAL Fallout® tabletop roleplaying games
Under License by Bethesda Softworks
LONDON, ENGLAND, 6th March – Modiphius Entertainment announced today they are developing two unique tabletop roleplaying game products based on the Fallout® videogame franchise.
Modiphius will develop and publish two tabletop RPG titles: the first expanding on the narrative wargame experience of Fallout: Wasteland Warfare, their licensed tabletop miniatures game, while a second more traditional tabletop RPG will follow using the company’s 2d20 System.
Modiphius Entertainment has had great success with their recent licensed roleplaying games using the 2d20 System: Infinity: The Roleplaying Game, a roleplaying game based on Corvus Belli’s Infinity miniatures game; Conan: Adventures in an Age Undreamed Of, based in the world of Robert E. Howard’s novels; and Star Trek Adventures, under license from CBS Studios Inc. Last year, Conan: Adventures in an Age Undreamed Of won Best Roleplaying Game at the UK Games Expo awards, and Star Trek Adventures won three ENnies for Best Rules, Best Miniatures Product, and Best Production Values.
The Fallout: Wasteland Warfare miniatures game has already proved a smash hit with fans of the hobby and Fallout franchise. Released in August it features a huge range of highly detailed 32mm scale resin miniatures plus rules for narrative wargaming in the wasteland with co-op, vs and solo modes of play.
Fallout: Wasteland Warfare game designer James Sheahan is developing a roleplaying game expansion for the miniatures game which will include new rules for character creation, creating adventures in the wasteland, and more.
Long-time fan, and head of roleplaying game development at Modiphius Entertainment, Sam Webb (Star Trek Adventures) will lead development of the 2d20 System version for a more in-depth tabletop roleplaying game experience.
The Fallout: Wasteland Warfare roleplaying game will be available Summer 2019, with the 2d20 System version following in 2020.
