X-Men: Mutant Insurrection is the Latest Dice-Based Co-op From Fantasy Flight Games
X-Men: Mutant Insurrection is a fast-paced, co-op for you and up to five of your closest friends. Check out the dice-based gameplay.
With Gen Con Online in full swing, mega-publisher Fantasy Flight Games is announcing upcoming games left and right. Earlier today, they dropped news about a new Twilight Imperium expansion. And now, the team has revealed X-Men: Mutant Insurrection, a dice-based co-op for up to six players. Check it out below.
X-Men: Mutant Insurrection obviously has a big IP behind it; however, the game also boasts a star designer. Richard Launius is the brain behind games like Arkham Horror, Defenders of the Realm, and Elder Sign. Joining him is Brandon Perdue, who’s had a hand in some of the Star Wars: Imperial Assualt expansions.
Mutant Insurrection lets you and your friends choose between 16 different X-Men as you embark on different adventures. The game uses a mixture of card combat and dice rolls. It looks like an easy-to-grasp system, which should make this a decent game for families to hop into.
At the very least, the mutant standees are going to look great on your table. They’re even including a cardboard Blackbird for your heroes to ride on. As with most Fantasy Flight Games, the components, as a whole, look phenomenal. Enticing new players to join in should be an easy ask.
X-Men: Mutant Insurrection is set to launch at friendly local game stores during the fourth quarter of 2020. That could have it out just in time for a great holiday gift for your super hero-loving family member.
Gen Con Online is running all weekend. Make sure to tune in on Twitch if you want to see some of the best upcoming games demoed live. And check back here for any big announcements.
