The developer explained that it’s made tweaks to card designs, board layout, improved icons, approved sample miniatures, filmed gameplay, and are preparing all the graphics for launch.

Modiphius also shared that anyone who backs the game will gain access to the demo through Tabletop Simulator, a digital platform that lets players interact with a virtual version of a physical board game.

The story of the tabletop version of Skyrim follows:

“Before the Dragonborn came to Skyrim… You are surviving members of the Blades, a legendary group who long protected the Empire of Tamriel! Abandoned by the empire, you must work together to thwart a plot which threatens the whole of Skyrim.”

The board game can be played solo or with up to four players. Players select their hero, upgrade their stats and gear while travelling across “The Holds” and complete narrative quests while fighting foes.

Elsewhere, Sledgehammer Games has revealed the character biographies for four operators in Call Of Duty: Vanguard.
