Cryptozoic Announces Post-Apocalyptic 3012 Deck Building Game

Cryptozoic Entertainment, the same company that’s brought you The Walking Dead Board Game and the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game, has just announced a brand new deck building game called 3012. This game will host play for up to four players, pitting them against each other in a battle for supremacy. The aim of the game? Pure and total domination, by any means possible.

A thousand years after the world almost came to an end, humanity has been divided into five clans. Each of these savage clans is battling against each other in an ultimate struggle for survival. Players will take the role of a Hero, competing to amass allies and weapons to make their deck as strong as possible. You can either hinder or help other players during gameplay, depending on your strategy to get to the top. Patrick Dillon, director of business development for Cryptozoic said about the game: 

“3012 is a really unique deck-building game, because every player can get involved in almost every turn. The game is about survival, and all the strategy, cunning and luck that goes with it. Ultimately, to be the winning Hero, you’ll have to make some tough decisions, make and break alliances, and prove you’re the strongest.”

Each player Hero will build his or her deck by gaining combat skills in order to defeat beasts and monsters in Encounters. Players can participate in each Encounter, helping or hindering other Heroes to the advantage of their own clan. 3012 will be ready to play out-of-the-box, and it will contain:

  • 228 game cards
  • 5 oversized Hero cards
  • 5 level tokens
  • 120 Action cards
  • 48 Encounter cards
  • 25 Gold cards
  • 20 of each Ally, Weapon, and Scout cards
  • 1 game board

Look for 3012 when it releases this fall for $45. With what’s been seen the game looks like it will be a lot of fun. I think the ability to mess with other players on their turns will really be the selling point in 3012 and make it play out differently than most other deck building games out there. Now I’m excited for fall. For more information on the game, head on over to the Cryptozoic site.
