Bloodborne: The Board Game, which is based on the PlayStation 4 title by FromSoftware, has reached its Kickstarter goal of $200,000 in less than 20 minutes.
As of this writing, the Kickstarter is currently sitting at $588,317 with 21 days to go in its campaign. Considering it is already successfully funded – in 17 minutes to be exact – those who back this project can expect to receive the game around May 2020.
Designed by Michael Shinall and Eric M. Lang, Bloodborne: The Board Game will allow one to four Hunters (players) the chance to explore Yharnam in a whole new way, although still with the same terrors, beasts, monsters, and more of the PS4 title, including the Cleric Beast, Vicar Amelia, Father Gascoigne and the Blood-Starved Beast.
Each game is said to take between 60-90 minutes to complete and utilizes a “diceless, card-driven combat system,” with your choices playing a huge role in if you succeed or fail.
Bloodborne: The Board Game will include four different campaigns, with each containing three different chapters with “unique content and varying enemy behavior.”
Those who pledge to the Kickstarter within the first 24 hours will be able to secure a copy for $90 USD with the added benefit of an exclusive Kirkhammer Hunter and Dashboard. Following the first 24 hours, the price will be raised to $100, but will still include the exclusive figure.
The Kirkhammer Hunter will join four other Hunters that can be chosen by the player in this board game – Saw Cleaver Hunter, Threaded Cane Hunter, Ludwig’s Holy Blade Hunter, and Hunter Axe Hunter.
There will be 28 different monsters, five bosses, and so much more included in this one package, with Stretch Goals like Chalice Dungeon Rules adding even more if met.
Bloodborne, which almost made it to the very top of our list of The Best PlayStation 4 Games, originally released in 2015 but has become a much loved classic that doesn’t seem to be losing any momentum as we all breathlessly wait for any word on the much wished for Bloodborne 2.
Luckily, we have this board game to make the wait just a bit more bearable.
