Modiphius bringing brand new edition of gothic RPG to London convention

The brand new edition of gothic RPG Vampire: The Masquerade is coming to our Tabletop Gaming Live convention in London later this month.

Star Trek Adventures and Achtung! Cthulhu studio Modiphius will have the fifth edition of the bloodthirsty roleplaying game on the show floor, ready for players to sink their teeth into and discover the latest updates to the long-running World of Darkness series.

Modiphius will also be demoing its new miniatures game, Fallout: Wasteland Warfare – the tense and tactical narrative skirmish game based on the hugely influential roleplaying video games.

Tabletop Gaming Live will take place on Saturday, September 29th and Sunday, September 30th 2018, and will give you the chance to play and buy the very latest games – including your opportunity to play games unveiled and released at Gen Con in the UK for the very first time, as well as those planned to launch at Essen in October. You can find a preview of some of the games available to play at the show in September's issue of Tabletop Gaming magazine.

Among the newest releases on the show floor will be Forbidden Sky, the next game from Pandemic creator Matt Leacock in his acclaimed and successful survival series after Forbidden Island and Desert, which will celebrate its official UK launch at Tabletop Gaming Live – making it the first place fans can pick up the game.

We’ll also have the latest ambitious card game from the creator of Magic: The Gathering, Richard Garfield, following its surprise reveal at Gen Con. KeyForge: Call of the Archons boasts billions of unique card combinations, making no two decks in the world alike – you’ll be able to see how it plays for yourself at the show.

The second edition of X-Wing will also be present on the show floor, ready for Star Wars fans to return to a galaxy far, far away in the biggest evolution for the hugely popular game and tournament mainstay yet.
