One 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.
