River Horse Games has announced that a Kickstarter campaign would start March 12 for their new Pacific Rim: Uprising game Pacific Rim: Extinction. The game features miniature figures of the Jaegers and Kaiju from the film. More info as we get it, check out the basics below as well as some of the figures.
"Pacific Rim: Extinction is played with large, detailed, pre-painted miniatures that represent the epic and towering scale of Jaegers and Kaiju. Each miniature has been modelled by highly experienced, talented artists, with full access to official Pacific Rim assets. This ensures they are completely movie accurate.
The miniatures of Pacific Rim: Extinction stand between 75-100mm tall, and close attention has been paid to bring the truly larger-than-life appeal of these huge machines and monsters straight to your tabletop!
Coming to Kickstarter March 12th 2018 — Pacific Rim: Extinction, the biggest miniatures game you’ll ever play!"
More About the game:
Pacific Rim: Extinction is a scenario driven, tabletop miniatures strategy game of city-wide destruction and chaos of epic proportions. With fantastically detailed and painted 75mm scale miniatures of the iconic Jaegers – mechanical guardians of humanity – and Kaiju – monsters the size of mountains sent from beyond our world – it captures the spectacular conflict of the Pacific Rim universe and places it in the palm of your hands.
Players will be able to jump right into the action as either the PPDC Jaegers or the Kaiju, either in a quick play match of intense combat, or a more constructed battle with both Jaegers and Kaiju using all their skills and abilities to achieve an objective.
The goal of the game is different depending on which side you choose to fight with. As a Kaiju player, you’ll uncover a secret objective at the start of the game. To win, you’ll need to meet this objective, ideally without revealing what it is to the Jaeger player too early. As a Jaeger player, your goal is to fulfil the PPDC’s task: the protection of humanity. You’ll need to defend cities as Kaiju trample them, and take down the immense invaders.
