Announcement of Battle for Nethervein

What is Battle for Nethervein?
Set in a dark fantasy world full of steampunk inventions and Lovecraftian horror, Battle for Nethervein is a modern board game inspired by MOBA computer game genre. The main feature is an action packed gameplay. Players divide into two teams fighting for either the Syndicate or the Swarm. During the game a player controls a hero, who gets stronger and gains new skills as the game goes on. A player's actions influence what happens on the battlefield. He can fight on the frontline and push it to the opposing tower. He can fulfill quests around the board to gain advantage. Or he can just go head to head with opposing heroes. The game focuses on smooth action game-play, utilizes simultaneous action selection and combat planning including bluffing and deception. It's for 4-6 players and takes 60-90 minutes.

Who is behind it?
The core team is the one that brought to life Shuffle Heroes, a card game published in 2015 (www.kickstarter.com/projects/686104751/shuffle-heroes). The team expanded with the involvement of more illustrators, story writers and even an animator for a trailer.

When is it coming out?
There will be a Kickstarter campaign starting in June to promote the game. The game itself will be released in October during Essen Spiel 2016. Print and play version will also be released for our partners and reviewers in June. The official website can be found at battlefornethervein.fromvoid.com.
