Call of Duty comes in a board game: CoD The Board Game

Call of Duty The Board Game on Kickstarter

The Call of Duty board game will soon be a reality. With cross-media projects like Takt op Symphony (music, anime), League of Legends (Arcane series) or even Horizon Zero Dawn (board game), it's not surprising to see a license as big as CoD that has had PC, console and mobile titles, cross the board game border. We tell you all about this board game Call of Duty the Board Game that will soon land on Kickstarter.

With the support of Activision, the Texas designers ofArcane Wonders will soon offer a Call of Duty board game to the world. It must be said that the publisher has already been involved in ideas for video game ports into board games, like Hello Neighbor with The Secret Neighbor Party Game. As a result, Call of Duty: The Board Game will arrive on Kickstarter this fall. Here's what the game's creators had to say about it to Polygon media:

[CoD the Board Game] will offer a series of products in the same game system, starting with the core sets. From this base, additional products will incorporate new features into the game such as operators, weapons, maps and game modes. In addition to competitive and tournament play styles, we are also creating cooperative campaigns for the future of the game [...] that will allow 1-4 players to progress through an immersive and challenging Call of Duty story."

The Call of Duty board game will hit stores in 2024. In addition, you will be able to support the project and get the game early by participating in crowdfunding at a minimum price of $50 for the base game. This board game will allow your living room to host basic 2 player games with future expansions to expand the campaigns.

The stage will be populated with figures, lines of sight, obstacles and missions to match the dynamic FPS action of Activision's CoD franchise.

Playing mobile games in board games

If licenses like Call of Duty mobile are important to you, there are many mobile games available in board game format. The most well-known publisher in this branch whose releases I was testing at JeuGeek is Lucky Duck Games, a company based in Poland. Thanks to them, you can already play iconic mobile games in board game format while waiting for the Call of Duty board game:

  • Fruit Ninja: Combo Party;
  • Kingdoms Rush;
  • Jetpack Joyride;
  • Vikings Gone Wild
  • and Zombie Tsunami.
Mobile video games adapted into board games

Other major licenses, already ported to mobile or not, are also available as board games. These include Civilization, XCOM, The Witcher, World of Warcraft, Starcraft, Mech vs Minions, Fallout, Dark Souls, Doom and Age of Empires to name but a few. For the moment, Call of Duty The Board Game has not yet entered the crowdfunding phase, but you will be informed of the launch of this crowdfunding as soon as possible on JeuMobi.

Yaya Yaya would never have spent a single cent on a mobile game. At least, that's what the legend says.
