Wizkids has revealed Blade Runner 2049: Nexus Protocol, a brand-new tabletop game set in the Blade Runner universe.

Blade Runner 2049: Nexus Protocol is a hidden identity game slightly similar to stuff like The Resistance or Secret Hitler. Unlike some of those games, however, you need to collect actual evidence to prove your case in this game.

3–6 players will join Deckard as Blade Runners in an attempt to hunt down a replicant on the run. There's just a teensy little hitch: anyone can be a replicant, Deckard included. Throughout the course of the game, you'll have to gather up evidence as you try to track down this rogue replicant before something really bad happens.

The player who manages to get 2 Evidence cards showing the Replicant (and, obviously, are not the Replicant themselves) will win. Alternatively, if none of the runners manage to get 2 or more of the needed Evidence cards, then the Replicant succeeds in escaping. Deckard wins in all other possible scenarios.

A game of Blade Runner 2049: Nexus Protocol should take no more than 30 minutes, so this makes for some perfect bite-sized gameplay. One question remains, though: when can you get it?
