A zombicide game is launched on Kickstarter and reveals new heroes

The time has finally come for fans to see what CMON and Spin Master Games have done with Marvel Zombies: A Zombicide Game, and the results are quite impressive. The game is now live on Kickstarter and has blown through its $ 500,000 goal with over $ 3 million, and it still has 15 days left in the campaign. Marvel Zombies allows you to play either as the superhero undead with Zombie Mode or as the X-Men in Hero Mode, and they are divided into two promises, Undead Pledge ($ 130) and Resistance Pledge ($ 240). Oh, and then there’s the Galactus promise.

The Galactus Promise gives you the massive Galactus game piece that includes a replaceable zombie head, and you will either have to prevent him from devouring the earth or devouring him first, and you will also encounter Silver Surfer (who comes in completely and undead as well versions). That promise will give you $ 410, and that includes both core boxes.

In Zombie Mode you will control several undead heroes, including Captain America, Deadpool, Wasp, Iron Man, Captain Marvel and the Hulk. Each character has unique abilities and there are 45 zombie drag cards to mix things up further. This box also has 12 unique spectators, including Sharon Carter, Blind Al, Wong, Aunt Man and more, and the undead heroes will face the surviving heroes like Spider-Man, Scarlet Witch, Doctor Strange and more.

In X-Men Resistance Hero Mode you will control characters like Magneto, Storm, Mystique, Colossus, Rogue and Wolverine, and you will face undead versions of Iceman, Juggernaut, Cyclops, Dark Phoenix, Psylocke and Sabretooth. There will also be new spectators like Abigail Brand, Callisto, Moira McTaggert and more, and there are also Reavers, Hellfire Soldiers and Multiple Man walkers to take on.

So far, a few extra characters have been revealed, including living heroes like Iron Man, Wasp, Luke Cage, Beast, Winter Soldier and Sabretooth, while the undead side gets Ms. Marvel, Rogue, Luke Cage, Beast and Wolverine. Now I’m just missing a surviving Iceman and we’re golden.

For those unfamiliar with the Zombicide franchise, the game is a collaborative affair where you and your teammates take control of a crew of survivors of the Zombie Apocalypse, and you will have to tackle a host of missions on your journey to ensure your crew survives and has the equipment and weapons to defeat all sorts of the undead, including the ultra-mighty abominations.

Abominations are incredibly deadly and are often larger than the common undead minions and players on the board, although they are typically not that much larger. If it’s Marvel Zombies Zombicide, it can be incredible to take on Galactus, especially since. the thumbnail for Galactus stands so high above the ground and the other thumbnails on the table. Players can either play as the undead heroes trying to crush any remaining life, or the last surviving heroes as they get through the game and try to survive, and while the gameplay will feel familiar to fans of the series, the superhero element adds new mechanics and abilities of the mixture that make it stand out immediately.

Marvel Zombies – A Zombicide Game is live on Kickstarter now.
