With GAMA Expo 2023 opening today, April 24, you can expect U.S. game publishers to be announcing new and upcoming games this week. For example, Arcane Wonders has revealed that it now has “a long-term partnership” with Activision Publishing, Inc., Genuine Entertainment, and Evolution to produce Call of Duty: The Board Game, with a crowdfunding campaign scheduled for late 2023 ahead of a Q2 2024 retail release.
This design comes from Bryan and Benjamin Pope and bears this teaser description:
Each round, make tough choices as you secretly and simultaneously plan your actions. Will you boldly engage the enemy head on? Or perhaps you can outmaneuver and sneak up on them? Maybe they are hiding in that building; throw a grenade in the window and find out! Or take a risk, and run for the flag to seize it.
After planning, the action unfolds with explosive surprises. Combat is quick and deadly, with intense tactical choices. Will you unload your magazine recklessly? Maybe you prefer to take the time to aim carefully? Or will you dodge and outmaneuver your foe? If you get eliminated, simply respawn immediately back into the action.
Want more? Combine both core sets for an unprecedented four-player experience. Expansions add new maps, operators, weapons, game modes, and more.
The publisher has revealed only the cover image above along with teaser promos, but I’m guessing that each core set will contain different characters, weapons, maps, and so forth. I’m at GAMA Expo 2023, so I’ll see what else I can find out about the game while I’m here…
