In the year 2097, the entire Earth was enveloped in a cataclysmic shift in climate, plunging the globe into another ice age. Nearly 90% of the world’s population was eliminated, driving the survivors to band together into loose communities and tribes. This is the alternate universe where Elsa built her ice castle, discovered Minecraft, and forgot about the real world.
In Arctic Scavengers, you are the leader of a small tribe of survivors. Resources, tools, medicine and mercenaries are all in scarce supply. You and your tribe are pitted against up to four other tribes in a fight for survival. Build your tribe, skirmish against other players head-to-head, or even bluff your way to victory.
Why am I telling you this now if the game is several years old and out of print? Because it's getting reprinted, of course! This reprint includes two expansions, one of them never-before released. Arctic Scavengers: Recon features new tribe leader roles, new mercenaries, new equipment and new ways to make your opponent feel pain. No, the game does not come with real working weapons or pictures of your mom. However, It does come with endless adventures and probably a few fictional guns from what I can gather by looking at the new cover—it clearly features ice age Furiosa under all that winter gear. (Pro-Tip: Frozen guns are incredibly dangerous, so you should do what I do and thaw them out first before betraying your friends and loved ones.)
Ask your friendly local game store about pre-ordering this; orders are due June 11th and is scheduled for a late-June release.
