Rebellion Gets “Unplugged”, Reveals Sniper Elite Board Game

Rebellion announced a that they are delving into tabletop experiences via a new board game division. Called Rebellion Unplugged, this branch of the studio will offer fans the ability to enjoy the company’s popular franchises in new ways.

The idea is simple: create physical games/collectibles using Rebellion’s many IPs. This is easier said than done, of course. Some of their games lend themselves to this type of treatment better than others; Evil Genius just screams tabletop.

Evil Genius wasn’t Rebellions first pick though. That honor fell to Sniper Elite. Launching through Kickstarter early next year, fans will get to take a sneak peak at the game at PAX Unplugged next month.

Will Sniper Elite The Board Game be as engrossing as its digital counterpart? Only time will tell. It does have a few things going for it besides its namesake. For one, Duncan Molloy, the former Founder and Creative Lead of the board game line at Osprey Games, is taking a leadership role at Rebellion Unplugged. He’s years of experience will be invaluable going forward.
