Resident Evil 3: The Board Game Kickstarter Campaign Launching This Month
Steamforged Games has announced that the Kickstarter campaign for Resident Evil 3: The Board Game will begin starting on April 28.
April has been an exciting month for Resident Evil fans with the release of Resident Evil 3 on consoles and PC last week. While Nemesis has proven to be terrifying on his own in the game, he might prove to be even more terrifying in the upcoming tabletop adaptation of the classic Resident Evil title.
Tabletop game publisher Steamforged Games has announced that the company will be launching a Kickstarter campaign for one of its next projects later this month, Resident Evil 3: The Board Game. The team behind their previous RE tabletop adaptation, Resident Evil 2: The Board Game, is returning for the RE3 board game, with the Kickstarter campaign to debut on April 28, 2020.

According to Steamforged, the game will adapt the original 1999 classic Resident Evil 3 to a tabletop setting, where 1-4 players will be challenged by its cooperative survival-horror gameplay. The game will allow players to either dive into “a 19+ hour campaign with an overarching storyline,” or players can take on smaller games in “individual, on-shot scenarios.” The game’s core protagonists, Jill Valentine and Carlos Oliveira, will be playable alongside other characters as they seek to escape the clutches of Nemesis, as Raccoon City is under the pressure of the T-virus outbreak.
Coming after the release of the anticipated Resident Evil 3 remake last week, the timing of Steamforged’s announcement and campaign couldn’t be better. Of course, given the success that the company has had with the tabletop adaptation of Resident Evil 2, it shouldn’t be a surprise that we can expect another excellent tabletop treatment with RE3.
Resident Evil 3: The Board Game will launch its Kickstarter campaign later this month, and you can check out the initial campaign page here. According to Steamforged, if the campaign gets 2,500 followers before its launch, a miniature of Jill Valentine in biker gear will be added to the game.
