Kickstarter campaign planned for September 26th
Mantic Games is moving out of the darkness of a dungeon and into, erm, the darkness of space with a sci-fi-flavoured follow-up to Dungeon Saga: The Dwarf King’s Quest.
The fittingly-titled Star Saga: The Eiras Contract is set in the same Warpath Universe as Mantic’s sci-fi miniatures skirmish title Deadzone, but utilises a modified version of the rules seen in Dungeon Saga, which are touted as putting a greater focus on accessibility for newcomers and depth for existing fans.
Players will control a team of space mercs “on a mission to retrieve stolen data plans from a research facility orbiting a far-off alien world”, who face off against hordes of minions and their alien overlords.
The narrative is said to include a number of surprising twists and difficult decisions, with future campaigns and add-ons already planned to expand the story and setting.
Mantic will launch a Kickstarter campaign for Star Saga one week from now on Monday, September 26th, which will run for 25 days.
Further release date and pricing details are yet to be confirmed.
