In their search for new sources of fuel, humans came across PK-L7, a small planet in a remote corner of the universe. Below the surface, they found what they were looking for. Xenium is a dark, oily, organic compound. Once refined, it becomes a game-changer for intergalactic exploration. It wasn't long before a colony was set up and teams of soldiers and scientists began extracting the Xenium. There, deep underground, was where the first assaults began. The Xenos were vicious, unrelenting, and mindless in their attacks. Survivors have had to fight for their lives against an out-of-this-world threat that just won't stop.
On April 10th at 3pm EST, Zombicide: Invader is coming to Kickstarter.
Zombicide: Invader is a cooperative game where 1 to 6 players face Xenos, an unfathomable swarm of infected Xenos controlled by the game itself. Each player takes on the role of 1 to 6 Survivors in a sci-fi setting being overwhelmed by these Xenos. The goal is simple: choose a Mission, complete its objectives, kill as many Xenos as possible, and (most importantly) survive!
Survivors will fight Xenos, rescue each other, recover vital data, unveil dark secrets, and much more! Survivors can be Civilians or Soldiers, each with specialized Skills. They all play together as a team, trading Equipment, and covering each other. They use whatever weapons they can get to kill Xenos and slow the invasion. The better the weapon, the higher the body count, but the more Xenos will appear, attracted by the onslaught! Survivors must also be mindful of their location as conventional weapons work fine indoors, but the planet’s oxygen-starved surface, they’ll need to arm themselves with more specialized weaponry… Lasers, anyone?
Most of the time, Xenos are predictable, but there are a lot of them and they use nasty tactics not encountered in previous Zombicide games. Only through cooperation can players achieve the Mission objectives and win.
