CMON, which has enjoyed a longstanding relationship with Sony Interactive Entertainment, has brought a number of PlayStation exclusives to life as tabletop games, such as Bloodborne and God Of War.

CMON took to its website to release a statement on the upcoming The Last Of Us board game, assuring fans that the tabletop experience will match that of the video games: “As long-time fans of the series, we recognize the special place these games hold in the hearts and minds of its many fans.”

It also revealed that several aspects of the video game will be adapted to the board game experience, including “unseen clickers”, “the intensity of a firefight” and “the heartbreak of being double crossed”.

The Last Of Us is a series that many of us at CMON have followed from its inception and we are eager to adapt the stirring character-driven player experience to tabletop, letting fans explore the world and story in a entirely new way,” its VP of Entertainment and Head of Licensing, Geoff Skinner said.
