News Collider: A new Days of Wonder game, A 40k MMO and yet another Descent Expansion

Things are running a little behind schedule here at Polyhedron Collider HQ but a little delay in bringing you the latest News Collider has meant we've had a chance to bring you news of a brand spanking new Days of Wonder game, finally some real life news about a 40k MMO and yet another Descent Expansion.

Relic Runners

Some game companies make a lot of games; there seem to be a constant stream of games coming out of some places these days. Then there are those companies who only release a new game once in a blue moon and have a track history of amazing Games. Days of Wonder is one such company whose game line-up can be counted without taking your shoes and socks off and every one of them is considered something rather special. So when Days of Wonder announce a new game its worth sitting up and taking notice.


Relic Runners is the latest game from Days of Wonder and will have players taking the role of pith helmet wearing archaeologists and treasure hunters on the search for valuable relics, and who can so no to pith helmets?

“Players follow trails across the jungle board map as they explore stacks of temples and ruins, ultimately hoping to uncover precious relics and earn victory points.
Players work to efficiently manage their resources: building pathways; making sure to carry sufficient Rations; and expand their Explorer’s Toolbox to help them explore, resupply, take additional actions, and score bonuses. Skillful planning will lead to a successful expedition as they travel their pathways to capture valuable relics.”

Relic Runners is expected to release in September and will cost $60. For more information check out http://www.daysofwonder.com/relic-runners/en/.

Warhammer 40,000 Eternal Crusade

The whole digital gaming world has been rather wrapped up this week in the big E3 conference taking place in Los Angeles. There’s not been much in the way of boardgame conversion or licence going on what with the big AAA titles taking all the limelight. There has however been an announcement for a game everyone thought long dead, the fabled Warhammer 40,000 MMO.

“Behaviour Interactive and Games Workshop® proudly announce a new online game in the Warhammer® 40,000® universe: Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade. Behaviour Interactive has obtained the rights to create a wholly new MMORPG persistent war experience for PC, PS4 and Xbox One set in Games Workshop’s universe of the 41st Millennium. In the game, players choose a Warhammer 40,000® race and fight directly as one of their warriors in massive conflicts for territory. It will be up to each faction’s community to determine their own destiny as they vie for control of an entire planet.”
There’s very little in the way of details at the moment but its sounds like you will have multiple choices of race and can play on consoles. Rock Paper Shotgun confirmed it to be a completely new game and not at all linked to the fallen Dark Millennium Online. Initial reports also suggest it may be more akin to Planetside 2 or EVE than to World of Warcraft.

Warhammer 40,000 Eternal War is set for release in 2015

Descent the Trollfens

Have you played all of the Descent expansions so far? Of course you haven’t, no-one can keep up with this madness but just in case you have Fantasy Flight Games have announced yet another Descent expansion, the Trollfens.

The Trollfens follows a similar pattern to Lair of the Wyrm, not only does it include new characters monsters heroes and spells, it also contains five quests that can be played as side-quests to an existing campaign or as a complete mini-campaign.

The Trollfens will be released in autumn (or Fall if you prefer), which gives you and me plenty of time to play the rest of the Descent expansions.
