Privateer Press Brings Back the Monsterpocalypse
Privateer Press has announced that it will be releasing a new hobby miniatures game this fall based on its Monsterpocalypse property, which first appeared as a Collectible Miniatures Game in 2008. The game centers on two or more giant kaiju monsters that brawl, blast, and body-slam each other in a dense destructible urban environment. Alongside these towering monsters, lesser minions, such as powerful tanks, fighter jets, flying saucers, fearsome dinosaurs, and demonic fiends fight to capture important locations and help power their monster to victory.
The game will feature two different Agendas players can choose from when building their armies: the noble Protectors, who want to save the world and the creatures that inhabit it from destruction, or the evil Destroyers, who seek to enslave and destroy the Earth for their own diabolical purposes. Both Agendas feature three different Factions, each with its own unique monsters and units. Players can freely mix and match any models from the Factions within their Agenda when building their army. The game will launch with two different one-player starter sets, one for each of the two Agendas. These starter sets will be expanded by Monster, Unit, and Building packs, which will contain new models for players to use in their games.
The Monsterpocalypse Hobby Miniatures Game represents an updated and streamlined second edition of the original 2008 collectible game’s rules. Additionally, instead of using pre-painted collectible figures to play, the new game’s most noteworthy difference is its use of highly detailed resin and metal hobby miniatures, which players get to assemble before playing. As a hobby game, this upgrade to the Monsterpocalypse experience provides the opportunity for players to customize their armies through painting and modeling them.
