They have done such a great job with the series and now even more great Alien gameplay is coming.
Free League Publishing and 20th Century Studios today announced Heart of Darkness, an upcoming new cinematic scenario for the multiple award-winning ALIEN roleplaying game.
ALIEN: Heart of Darkness is a stand-alone adventure, but also serves as a conclusion to the Draconis Strain Saga begun in the cinematic scenario Chariot of the Gods and continued in Destroyer of Worlds, all written by Andrew E.C Gaska. The expansion is designed for 3–5 players plus the Game Mother and is a spiraling descent into soul-crushing madness.
Heart of Darkness will come in a boxed set including a range of maps, cards, handouts, and pre-generated characters with preliminary MSRP set to $29.99. The ALIEN RPG Core Rulebook or ALIEN Starter Set is required to play.
Heart of Darkness will be offered in a pre-order and PDF pre-release on the official ALIEN RPG website later this winter, for a full physical retail release in the summer.
