doom board gameDoom has always been known as an FPS game. In fact it was one of the early FPS games that helped set the standard of FPS games that we know and love today, but now it looks like Doom will be given the board game treatment where thanks to the folks at Fantasy Flight Games, we can look forward to playing a different version of the game in the future.

According to the company, “You and up to four friends will play through a series of missions, the marines attempting to achieve a variety of objectives and the invader orchestrating a barrage of savage demon attacks against them. While the marines can respawn after death, they can only do so a set number of times before the demons claim victory over the mission, threatening not only the UAC’s operation, but the survival of humanity as a whole.”

Dubbed Doom: The Board Game, this is pretty much what the name implies. Gamers will be able to take part in missions set out by the board game and play as either a marine or a demon, with each side working towards their own objectives. There will be six different missions and the marines will also come in different classes with different weapons and abilities.

No word on how much the game will cost, but the game is expected to arrive at the stores of retailers come Q4 2016.
