Monolith Edition just announced they will follow their popular Batman: Gotham City Chronicles board game with a brand new roleplaying game based on the dark knight and the city he protects. The Batman: Gotham City Chronicles roleplaying game will consist of five books, and it can be played with miniatures, or in the classic pen and paper style.
In a press release, Monolith Edition stated that their overriding vision for the roleplaying game is to remain true, “to the essence of Batman, as portrayed in the comic books.” The game’s books include Gotham’s Heroes by François Verstraete, Gotham City Guide by Xavier Fournier and Alex Nikolavitch, Gotham’s Chronicles by Nicolas Texier, Olivier Caïra, and Mahyar Shakeri. The two remaining books will be revealed during a Kickstarter campaign for the project, which is set to launch in early 2021. International artists are set to create original covers and illustrate all five of these books. Oliver Sanfilippo and Anthony Jean have been announced so far as illustrators for the game.
Batman: Gotham City Chronicles will allow players to, “play as the city’s well-known vigilantes and criminals, but also your own creations, or face the tough calls and grind as a Gotham City Police Department officer.”
Monolith Edition’s previous projects include Conan: The Board Game and the Mythic Battles: Pantheon board game. Stay tuned to Conskipper for complete coverage of this exciting new project as soon as it breaks!
