The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is getting a brand new Board Game

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is getting a brand new boardgame that promises to be ‘epic’.

Modiphius Games, the studio behind Elder Scrolls Call of Arms.  is developing the "epic co-operative board game" based upon the hugely popular Bethesda series.

Information on the project is pretty sparse but you can sign up for more “design updates in the lead up to launch".

For now, it’s just a "campaign preview" spotted Gamefound, a new crowdfunding platform for tabletop games.

Accordingly to Polygon, it’ll cater for between 1 to 4 players.

Modiphius says it will "be showing lots of previews through the updates so this was a preview a lot further in advance of usual previews".

Gamefound was founded by Marcin Świerkot, founder and CEO of Awaken Realms and hosted its first crowdfunding project last year.

“I think that the board games are the ones pushing the boundaries to the limits of what is possible [on Kickstarter],” Świerkot said via Polygon.

“They are certainly the most innovative in terms of rewards [...] the most complex for sure. I guess we as board gamers like to make things complex for ourselves.”

Skyrim has sold more than 30m copies since its launch 10 years ago and is widely regarded as one of the best games of the past decade.
