The OP has revealed a new board game on the horizon based on the DC Comics series Dark Nights: Metal. In The Batman Who Laughs Rising, players cooperate to lead the DC heroes against an invasion of our universe from the villainous Joker-ized Dark Knight and his minions. The game is for one to four players, ages 15+, plays in around an hour, and will carry an MSRP of $59.99 when it arrives in the Fall.
From The OP:
One of DC’s most sinister characters is bringing his darkness from the comics to the tabletop, but don’t let the familiar silhouette fool you—the sight of this twisted villain from the Dark Nights: Metal series will make you do a double take. The latest to join the ranks of board games’ greatest foes is coming soon in The Batman Who Laughs Rising!
In The Batman Who Laughs Rising, a passage from the Dark Multiverse has allowed the most dangerous evildoers to infiltrate Gotham City, and these Dark Knights alongside their menacing leader are eager to do their worst to the city.
Players roll dice and work together to save the multiverse, starting with one of four starting heroes — Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Hawkgirl, or Batman — and recruiting allies such as Harley Quinn, The Flash, and Cyborg, whose skills can complete objectives or help recover what is lost to darkness. Take out villainous versions of Batman such as The Merciless, The Dawnbreaker, The Murder Machine, and more before facing off with the psychotic Joker-ized antagonist himself, who’s represented by a custom-sculpted, full-color figure who commands a fistful of chained Evil Robins!
