Resident Evil 3: The Board Game will land on Kickstarter on April 28th, 2020. The tabletop game has been created by Steamforged Games in collaboration with series publisher Capcom. This follows the release of Resident Evil 2: The Board Game, which was revealed by Steamforged back in 2018 and launched last year.

The board game is naturally focused on survival horror and will allow up to four players to experience a “19+ hour campaign with an overarching storyline.”
The game can also be experienced via one-shot scenarios and will see you taking control of Resident Evil 3’s most important characters, including heroine Jill Valentine and UBCS mercenary Carlos Oliviera.
“Players must carefully manage resources, make intelligent and meaningful decisions, and be wary of curveballs thrown by the tension deck,” the statement reads. “[The Tension Deck] is a mechanic carried over from the RE2 board game which will surprise players with unexpected threats to replicate the terrifying suspense of the video game.”
If you would like to support the game ahead of its crowdfunding launch, you can follow the campaign over on Kickstarter. If the campaign reaches 2500 followers, the developers will unlock a miniature of Jill Valentine in biker gear.
