Tabletop games are no stranger to horror-themed experiences, with many classics like Betrayal at House on the Hill and Arkham Horror being played for years. If you’re looking to have another horror-focused experience with your tabletop group with Halloween around the corner, Alien: The Roleplaying Game is making its way to digital tabletop platforms so you can (virtually) try to avoid the Xenomorph together.

Publisher Free League Publishing has announced that Alien: The Roleplaying Game is now available on digital tabletop platforms including Roll20 and Fantasy Grounds. The digital release of the game on these platforms includes the core rulebook–which spans 392 pages–and also brings over the game’s two sequel scenarios, Chariot of the Gods and Destroyer of Worlds.

You can take a look at the official trailer for the base game below:

Alien: The Roleplaying Game first released last year from Free League Publishing, and adapts the iconic movie franchise into a tabletop roleplaying experience. Much like the classic Ridley Scott film, Alien focuses on players trying to work together to outlast the Xenomorph and escape in one piece. The RPG features cinematic play that offers “pre-made scenarios” designed for one-shots or single session play, while also featuring campaign play for more extended, continuous play with friends in an ongoing storyline.

For those unfamiliar with the platforms, Roll20 and Fantasy Grounds are both popular digital tabletop platforms that feature the ability the ability to play tabletop RPGs online with customizable maps, player chat, dice rolling systems, and more. Both platforms feature an array of officially-licensed tabletop games such as Dungeons & DragonsPathfinder, Call of Cthulu, and more, with both platforms bringing Alien: The Roleplaying Game into the fold.
