Published on 02/11/2022 at 14:37
The power of The Last of Us franchise is no longer to be proven: after two video games, a comic strip and soon a TV series, the board game’s turn to shine for the first time.
Get out of darkness
Sony is well aware that its The Last of Us franchise is one of its most prestigious and that there is still a lot to do : we know that a very ambitious multiplayer game is currently being concocted, that the beginning of a script has been started for a potential Part 3… and now here is the board game.
This is called The Last of Us: Escape the Dark and it has just been formalized by Naughty Dog itself, in partnership with Themeborne. Escape the Dark is notably a collection of board games produced by Themeborne, with one key word: cooperative and easy to understand game, while relying on beautiful cards and a finish with small onions.
Black, white and class
Thus, after Escape the Dark Castle and Escape the Dark Sector, the saga will be eyeing the side of a real third-party license: The Last of Us. We do not yet know all the ins and outs since the set will be fully revealed during the launch of the crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter on November 8th.
We know in any case that it will be a new interpretation of the iconic adventure of Joel and Ellie, always a multitude of paths to take to offer a new way of player in each game. First visuals of the board, cards, pawns and box – all in black and white – have already been unveiled.
On November 8, you will therefore be able to participate in the financing of the project if you feel like it, the first level of which has not yet been announced. Note that a collector’s edition will also be offered. In short, see you in a week at this address… or on JV, since we will not fail to relay all the information about The Last of Us Escape the Dark.
