A Most August Announcement!

Greater Than Games is proud to officially announce a brand new game: Sentinel Tactics!

 

Sentinel Tactics is a tactical combat game that uses a hex grid map to represent terrain. Each player controls one or more heroes or villains, each of which has unique powers. Combat is based on the rolling of six-sided dice. Whereas Sentinels of the Multiverse is a fully cooperative game, Sentinel Tactics is a team based game. Groups of players will cooperate against either a villain player or against another team of players, so while the game is competitive, cooperation and teamwork are still vital to the gameplay.

 

The gameplay engine for Sentinel Tactics is based on the TacDice system developed by Living World Games. We have been working with the fine folks there since last year, when they came to us with their heroic idea, and we are thrilled to jointly present this collaborative work. The primary designers of Sentinel Tactics are Luther Hendrix, Kevin Nunn, and Christopher Badell.

 

Now, we know there has been a lot of interest in miniatures, but we also want to keep the cost of the base game as affordable as possible. Thus, the game will come with tokens to represent each of the heroes and villains. There will also be a miniatures pack sold separately for people interested in adding miniatures to the game in the place of the tokens (or for people just interested in miniatures of their favorite Sentinels of the Multiverse).

 

Sentinel Tactics takes place a few years after the primary storyline of Sentinels of the Multiverse, so you will see changes in the look and experience of the heroes and villains you already know. There will be more information about how the Multiverse has changed as we get closer to the launch of the game. 

Sentinel Tactics

This coming week at Gen Con, we will be hosting preview games of Sentinel Tactics in the Greater Than Games Booth (Booth 2123), so definitely come by and check it out! Granted, it’s still a mostly bare-bones prototype, but you’ll get a very solid feel for the gameplay, which is a blast!

 

Look forward to a Kickstarter for this game next year, which will give more information about the game itself, the release date, and the changes it brings to the Multiverse!


And remember, keep on saving the Multiverse!

Awesome. But is this a third timeline? Legacy doesn't appear to be dead or Iron Legacy...

I am very excited about this one! I am looking forward to a kickstarter to participate in! I hope canada post figures out they don't have to charge an arm and a leg to send things in our fine country before this one starts up!

Wantwantwantwantwant *cough* Looking forward to seeing just how the powers are interpreted in a hex-based area...

Neat!  I enjoy tactical wargaming too.

I'd love to know some kind of timeline (what quarter, what month?) and range of what the base game and minature packs will cost so I can be prepared. I don't mind the Kickstarter model but I am not always prepared for the expense when it comes not knowing when that will be.

Will playtesting be available for those with playtester access? #Excited
