Call of Duty has been a household name in the world of video games for years now, but soon the iconic franchise will be making its way to the tabletops in a new, exciting way. In a recent announcement, Arcane Wonders revealed their partnership with Activision Publishing, Genuine Entertainment, and Evolution to create Call of Duty: The Board Game, set to debut on Kickstarter this Fall 2023.
Call of Duty: The Board Game Teaser Trailer
As players take on the roles of elite soldiers, Call of Duty: The Board Game promises to combine elements of strategy, tactical planning, and combat, all while maintaining the immersive experience of the video game franchise. The original game will feature stunning artwork and high-quality components, including miniatures of the iconic soldiers and weapons from the Call of Duty franchise, as well as a variety of scenarios and gameplay modes that allow players to savor and share the excitement of Call of Duty in a whole new way.
The main goal of the board game is to recreate the fun and excitement of the video game IRL and without being exactly the same. Tabletop games are in general, slower paced and bank a lot on the in-person interaction and social aspects. Hopefully playing the tabletop board game will recreate the fun and exhilaration of a LAN party.
“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Activision to bring the Call of Duty franchise to the tabletop. As life-long COD fans, we’ve worked hard to capture the scope, stakes, and sheer intensity of the video games in ways that COD fans and board gamers new and old will love. We’re looking forward to bringing the unforgettable fun and competitive frenzy of COD to game night for years to come.”Bryan Pope, CEO of Arcane Wonders and ne of the game’s lead designers
It’s no surprise that Activision is expanding the Call of Duty franchise to tabletops. The video game franchise has been a massive success, with countless fans and players around the world. The franchise has even expanded into comics, movies, and other mediums. This is not even including the massive juggernaut of the Call of Duty eSports League, Call of Duty League. The move to tabletop board games is a natural progression, and it’s exciting to see how the franchise’s unique brand of gameplay will translate to the tabletop.
If you’re eager to try out Call of Duty: The Board Game for yourself, pre-orders for the board game will be available on Kickstarter this Fall 2023, with retail availability worldwide set for 2024.
