We can finally reveal the name for the RuneScape board game – and show you some gorgeous minis! We've also given Extinction a few tweaks and fixes, so watch out for spoilers in the Patch Notes…
RuneScape Kingdoms: Shadow of Elvarg
We've got a name - and minis!
Hopefully you’ve heard the news about our partners Steamforged bringing Gielinor to tabletop – and we hope that you’re as excited as we are! Well we've now got a name – and we can reveal the first three minis!
Introducing RuneScape Kingdoms: Shadow of Elvarg, a cooperative campaign board game for 1-5 players, set in the fantasy world of Gielinor!
Explore from above with a game board styled like a fast-travel map, jumping from region to region as you level up your skills and complete quests. Zoom in for face-to-face encounters with iconic bosses that become even tougher as you work your way toward the final quest!
Every group member can play their way, maxing skills to level up and earn those all-important Capes.
Now, about those minis… Steamforged have developed a unique mini style for RuneScape Kingdoms inspired by iconic versions of outfits, NPCs and bosses from the past 21 years. This look is inspired by RuneScape's low-poly roots, but with all the detail you’d expect in a modern mini. We can’t wait to get our hands on ‘em!
