Yesterday, it was the last day of us. Many things have been announced and put on sale, including games, clothes and accessories. It was also announced that The Last of Us would extend to other media. We know there will be a show on HBO based on The Last of Us, but there is also a board game in preparation. Unfortunately, there is not much information on The Last of Us: The Board Game and its mechanisms. However, on the basis of what we know about source material and some clues, we can speculate a little.
The board game is made by CMON. Their official statement is more a love letter to the series than a revelation of the game. It’s good to know that they really care. The blog ends with and disturbing “_Click. Click. Click. Click.”, Which obviously points to a presence of crickers in the game. While the clickers are undoubtedly a threat, the most interesting conflicts in The Last of us are between humans, so it will be interesting to see what CMON will do it.
CMON has also created board games from other PlayStation exclusives such as God of War and Bloodborne. If these games are an indication of what we can expect from The Last of Us: The Board Game, there will probably be maps of objects or weapons inspired by objects of the game, statues or parts of Player your favorite characters, and maybe a kind of card tile system for replayability. Let’s hope the fans of The Last of Us pay attention to this next board game.
