Elder Scrolls is getting a board game, with the ever-popular Skyrim kicking things off

Due later this year

We’re in a resplendent era of RPG tabletop games, with Gloomhaven leading the charge. Over the past several years there’s been a resurgence in the DragonStrike-esque D&D-lite genre, and many IPs, from Dark Souls to Fallout, have taken the plunge.

That latter one is important, as Bethesda enjoyed the collaboration with Fallout board game creator Modiphius (which handled Wasteland Warfare) so much that they’re doing it again. Elder Scrolls is getting its own board game that’s a world tour of sorts across the series, and Skyrim will be the one to kick it all off. This iteration isn’t quite a solo RPG romp though: players will control multiple heroes and troops as they spelunk across Tamriel. It’ll arrive in late 2019.

This passage, found on the official site, clarifies how they’re rolling everything out: “The first wave of releases will be a two player starter set (that can also be played solo and co-op) and reinforcement sets of resin miniatures for both the Stormcloaks and the Imperial Army. There will also be a Dragonborne single player set, and more races and characters from across the Elder Scrolls stories are planned. A host of accessories like scenery, metal tokens, deluxe dice bags, settlement journals and more will expand your options. Planned releases will expand on The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, as well as adding releases from The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, The Elder Scrolls Online, and more”
