MERCS: Infos zum Recon Kickstarter
Beasts of War haben einige exklusive Infos zum kommenden Brettspiel der Macher von MERCS erhalten.
The game is a fully co-operative experience where you play as a team looking to break in and infiltrate an opposing MegaCon Headquarters. You’ll be fighting down tight corridors, holding important locations, taking out targets and even interrogating employees as you fight against an increasingly aggressive in-built game AI.
Just like with Myth the game takes place on a series of modular boards that are double-sided giving you plenty to work with as you change up the office layout between games. Each set-up will provide you with new challenges by creating choke points and lanes of fire as well as deadly ambush opportunities for your enemy no doubt!
Excitingly the board can also take damage as you fight your way through the building. Tiles can be damaged and this alters the environment, maybe opening up a new approach you weren’t thinking of. This in turn develops and sees the Security Forces themselves getting better equipped and more aggressive popping up all over the place. It sounds like the neat escalation mechanic that some might have seen in video games like Payday: The Heist.
At the centre of it all we have the leader board which allows you to control your troops and get them where they need to be. Your team will find all it’s action points, commands and weaponry on show here allowing you to tactically develop strategies as you fight. It also looks awesome too as you can see and a development of the Myth boards.
