A Zombicide game launches on Kickstarter and reveals new heroes
The time has finally come for fans to see what CMON and Spin Master Games have done with Marvel Zombies: A Zombicide Game and the results are quite impressive. The game is now live on Kickstarter and has reached its $500,000 goal with over $3 million, and it still has 15 days left in the campaign. Marvel Zombies lets you play as either an undead superhero with Zombie Mode or as X-Men in Hero Mode, and these are split into two promises, the Undead Promise (130 $) and the Promise of Resistance ($240). Oh, and then there’s the Galactus Pledge.
The Galactus Pledge gives you the massive Galactus Game Piece which includes a swappable zombie head, and you’ll either have to stop him from devouring the earth or devour him first, and you’ll also face off against Silver Surfer (who comes as a hero and undead versions as well). This Promise will set you back $410 and also includes the two base boxes.
In Zombie Mode, you’ll control multiple undead heroes, including Captain America, Deadpool, Wasp, Iron Man, Captain Marvel, and Hulk. Each character has unique abilities, and there are 45 Zombie Trait cards to mix things up further. This box also includes 12 unique spectators, including Sharon Carter, Blind Al, Wong, Aunt Man, and more, and undead heroes will face off against surviving heroes like Spider-Man, Scarlet Witch, Doctor Strange, and more.
In X-Men Resistance Hero Mode, you’ll control characters like Magneto, Storm, Mystique, Colossus, Rogue, and Wolverine, and battle undead versions of Iceman, Juggernaut, Cyclops, Dark Phoenix, Psylocke, and Sabretooth. There will also be new spectators like Abigail Brand, Callisto, Moira McTaggert, and more, and there are also walkers Reavers, Hellfire Soldiers, and Mulitple Man to face.
A few more characters have been revealed so far, including living heroes like Iron Man, Wasp, Luke Cage, Beast, Winter Soldier, and Sabretooth, while the undead side gets Ms. Marvel, Rogue, Luke Cage, Beast, and Wolverine. Now I just need a surviving Iceman and we’re golden.
For those unfamiliar with the Zombicide franchise, the game is a co-op affair where you and your fellow players take control of a crew of survivors in the Zombie apocalypse, and you’ll have to tackle a host of missions while throughout your journey to ensure your crew survives and has the equipment and weapons to take down all manner of undead, including super-powerful Abominations.
Abominations are incredibly deadly and are often larger than regular undead minions and players on the board, although they’re usually not much larger. If it’s Marvel Zombies Zombicide, going up against Galactus could be amazing, especially since. the Galactus miniature stands so high above the ground and the other miniatures on the table. Players can either play as the undead heroes trying to crush any remaining life, or the last surviving heroes as they progress through the game and try to survive. Although the gameplay looks familiar to fans of the series, the superhero element adds new mechanics. and blending abilities that make him stand out immediately.
