Modiphius Entertainment Reboots Mutant Chronicles RPG

Mutant ChroniclesOne of the more popular Swedish game designs in memory was the Mutant Chronicles system. The Target Games RPG was pretty popular and even inspired a miniatures game and, believe it or not, a movie loosely based on the title’s post-apocalyptic setting. Target disappeared from the scene and even with a few companies subsequently holding the license, nothing new appeared on the scene; until now. Modiphius Entertainment announced today they will be rebooting the series with the first products to appear late in 2013.

From Modiphius:

Modiphius has announced plans for the official licensed Mutant Chronicles roleplaying line, which sees one of the biggest RPG’s brought bang up to date. “We’ve been filling in some of the gaps in the storyline, answering mysteries and expanding on hints to bring the Mutant Chronicles world to life like never before.” Explains Publisher Chris Birch who sees the original material and stunning artwork as crucial to the success of the new vision alongside new artists who will be creating never-seen-before views of the world.

“Grab your massive guns, strap on your shoulder pads, this gargantuan engine of destruction is purring away like a hot rod on the Martian flats and there’s a legion of Necromutant’s waiting to taste hot lead!”

The Mutant Chronicles 3rd Edition RPG is a full rewrite of the best elements of the popular 2nd Edition rules that the fans know and love, and utilizes d20’s combined with a fresh approach to the core systems. Modiphius wants to let players experience the incredible breadth of adventure possible within the universe from investigations of the Dark Symmetry, cults, and corporate conspiracy to the Corporate Wars and desperate battles with the Dark Legion. For the first time taking the game into space, players will have the freedom to roam the solar system aboard a range of spaceships, create their own companies, engage in corporate conspiracy as well as the typical smash and grab missions.

“The aim is to make this play fast, fun and just like you imagine the world of Mutant Chronicles to be. We want you to be able dog fight in the skies of Venus, hold off a horde of Necromutants, survive a fleet battle and lead a terrifying investigation without bogging you down in endless rules.”

Mutant Chronicles: Dark Symmetry, due Autumn 2013 will let gamers play through the first outbreak of the Dark Legion. Live out some of the defining moments of the Mutant Chronicles timeline; want to experience the crash of civilisation as the Dark Symmetry is unleashed? Investigate the growing madness or see the Dark Citadels rise for the first time? Mutant Chronicles: Dark Symmetry will be the first release in time for Christmas 2013 with a preview on show at US gaming event Gen Con Indy in August 2013.

Mutant Chronicles: Dark Legion due Spring 2014 throw’s players headlong in to the 2nd Corporate War as the Dark Legion returns for a second cataclysmic match with humanity. Mutant Chronicles: Dark Legion is set during the same timeline as the Warzone skirmish game in the Mutant Chronicles universe being developed by UK based Prodos Games Ltd

Further supplements and campaigns are planned for both timelines to expand on the universe and will allow fans to pursue action orientated or investigative adventures and will be written by a host of well-known names from the tabletop RPG scene. Whilst the first release is set for Winter 2013-14, a Kickstarter planned for the Autumn this year will allow fans to unlock some fantastic options for the RPG, limited editions as well as conversions to other popular RPG systems so that more people can enjoy the world of Mutant Chronicles than ever before.

Modiphius is launching a program to involve the Mutant Chronicles gaming community in the re-development and let them have their say as the 3rd Edition game comes to life, if you’re interested in joining in visit the website www.mutantchroniclesrpg.com.
