WizKids and Gale Force Nine Unveil X-Men: Mutant Revolution

Lead a mutant school and battle for control of the world
 
Hillside, NJ — November 20, 2014 — Expanding upon the successes of Marvel Comics-themed games like Marvel Dice Masters: Avengers vs. X-Men and Marvel HeroClix, WizKids today announced a partnership with game creator Gale Force Nine to publish X-Men: Mutant Revolution in March 2015.

Based on Gale Force Nine’s popular Spartacus: A Game of Blood and Treachery tabletop game, X-Men: Mutant Revolution will allow you to play as classic X-Men characters, including Wolverine, Cyclops, Magneto, or Storm, as each leads a different school with unique powers and abilities. 2-4 players can take part in the mutant action, each recruiting heroes and students to their school, then training teams and sending them on missions to spread their school’s vision for mutants to the world.

“When we played Spartacus: A Game of Blood and Treachery we were impressed with the ‘fun first’ approach inherent to the game engine,” said Justin Ziran, president of WizKids. “Our goal with X-Men: Mutant Revolution was to bring that fun-first experience to a new audience by using a top shelf IP coupled with our Combat Dial technology – the HeroClix dial – which simplifies record-keeping and streamlines gameplay.”

“Given our long-term relationship, this agreement was a great way to see the core mechanics from one of our games used for a different setting,” said John-Paul Brisigotti, CEO of the Battlefront Group, which includes Gale Force Nine. “The fit with the Marvel Universe is a good one and we look forward to seeing the material adapted in X-Men: Mutant Revolution.
