The revered realms of Norse mythology and strategic board gaming are set to collide in CMON’s latest endeavour—a board game adaptation of the acclaimed 2018 video game, God of War. This announcement marks a significant venture for CMON, further solidifying its reputation for bringing video game experiences to the tabletop.
The upcoming board game, inspired by the adventures of Kratos and his son Atreus in the 2018 hit, promises to immerse players in the mystical Nine Realms of Norse mythology. While specific gameplay details remain under wraps, CMON has assured fans that the game will feature its signature intricately designed miniatures, adding a tangible richness to the mythological journey.
A collaborative effort between CMON, Santa Monica Studio, and Sony Interactive Entertainment, the game represents a harmonious blend of gaming expertise and creative storytelling. Geoff Skinner, CMON’s Senior Vice President of US Operations, expressed his enthusiasm for the project, citing years of development and a keen focus on capturing the essence of the God of War universe. “Our goal was to answer one question: ‘Does this feel like God of War?’ I believe we’ve succeeded admirably in that regard,” Skinner stated.
Fans can look forward to a Kickstarter campaign launching in 2024, with a targeted release date set for 2025. This timeline builds anticipation and allows for the meticulous crafting of the game’s components, ensuring a final product that lives up to the expectations of both board game aficionados and God of War enthusiasts.
The announcement comes as a pleasant surprise to the gaming community, especially considering the four-year gap since CMON’s release of a God of War card game, which had initially suggested a one-time foray into the franchise.
As eager fans await further details, set to be released next year, the first glimpses of the game’s miniatures have already sparked excitement and speculation. This project not only represents a new chapter for CMON but also a testament to the enduring appeal of the God of War saga, now poised to conquer the world of board gaming.
