Mantic Games is excited to announce that it is partnering with Dark Horse Comics and visionary creator Mike Mignola to bringÂ Hellboy: The Roleplaying GameÂ to Kickstarter this summer.Â Hellboy: The Roleplaying GameÂ will be a whole new way to explore the Hellboy and B.P.R.D. universe while creating your own spectacular one-off stories or action-packed chronicles.
Powered by the worldâ€™s most popular RPG ruleset, Fifth Edition,Â Hellboy: The Roleplaying GameÂ gives you the tools to step into the shoes of a B.P.R.D. agent, ready to face the forces of evil. You can become a field researcher skilled in the study of the occult, a hard-nosed B.P.R.D. security agent, a rookie with hidden supernatural powers, and moreâ€¦. The choice isÂ yours.Â
Developed by Red Scar Publishing,Â Hellboy: The Roleplaying GameÂ is being led by ENnie Award-winning writer and game developer Marc Langworthy, who has worked onÂ Mutant Chronicles 3rd Edition Roleplaying Game, Judge Dredd & The Worlds of 2000 AD Roleplaying Game,and theÂ Conan: Adventures in An Age Undreamed Of Roleplaying Game.
Once the Kickstarter launches, you will be able to try the roleplaying game for yourself with a detailed quickstart that features six pre-generated characters, all the rules needed to play, and a unique adventure inspired by theÂ HellboyÂ graphic novels, written by Red Scar.
â€œWe canâ€™t wait to bring Hellboy back to Kickstarter,â€ said Ronnie Renton, CEO of Mantic Games. â€œThe roleplaying game is going to be a fantastic new way to experienceÂ HellboyÂ on the tabletop. The team at Red Scar has done an amazing job of capturing the feel of theÂ HellboyÂ universe. Plus, your miniatures fromÂ Hellboy: The Board GameÂ will be compatible with the RPG, which will bring a whole new lease of life to your awesome mini collection.â€
Mantic Games launchedÂ Hellboy: The Board GameÂ on Kickstarter in 2018 and raised almost two million dollars during the campaign. The board game is a co-operative experience in which players face off against some of the comicâ€™s most famous foes. Up to four people take control of iconic B.R.P.D. membersâ€“â€“Hellboy, Abe Sapien, Liz Sherman, and Johann Krausâ€“â€“before exploring gothic locations, uncovering ancient artefacts, and battling one of Hellboyâ€™s most notorious foes, Rasputin! After launching at retail last year, the game is now available in multiple languages (French, Italian, Portuguese, and Russian) and is on its fourth reprint after selling out worldwide.
