The Pathfinder Arena board game has been announced by Giochi Uniti International, a tabletop company that has released more than 30 games of various styles since 2006.
Pathfinder Arena will feature "high-detail" miniatures of some of the game's greatest heroes and monsters. Firmly placed in the Age of Lost Omens setting, players must go to battle in a deadly labyrinth where the monsters have been summoned. The labyrinth will also feature a dynamic layout that can be changed by moving the board's tiles.
This competitive strategy game will be divided into four stages of challenges according to a press release. The power and number of monsters will increase with each successive stage while the heroes will level up, gaining new skills, magic spells, equipment, and favor from the setting's various deities.
When Does the Pathfinder Arena Kickstarter Launch?
There may not be a Pathfinder Arena Kickstarter campaign; earlier this year, Giochi Uniti launched a campaign on the Game On Tabletop crowdfunding site for the Pathfinder Stella Infranta omnibus. The company has not detailed which crowdfunding site it will use for this new Pathfinder board game.
Either way, a press release from the company has revealed that the crowdfunding campaign is expected to launch sometime in 2021; no specific date has been announced as of yet.
When is the Pathfinder Arena Release Date?
The crowdfunding campaign for Pathfinder Arena won't be launching until 2021, so we can't say for sure when the game itself will launch.
Giochi Uniti's previous campaign for a Pathfinder omnibus concluded in early February 2020 and the project was expected to ship in May of 2020. Typically, tabletop games take several months to complete production and the current pandemic situation might delay things even further.
Hopefully, Pathfinder fans won't have to wait too long to get their hands on this upcoming board game. We'll learn more about this game when the developers stream a live demo (presumably on its Twitch and YouTube channels) on Saturday, October 24, at 3:00 PM EDT. For now, you can sign up for the latest updates on the Pathfinder Arena website.
