Two different single-player starter sets offer players a choice between Protectors and Destroyers. Once a side has been chosen, players can expand and customize their force with Monster, Unit, and Building packs and tailor their play experience with a variety of supplementary accessories.
With highly detailed resin and metal hobby miniatures, Monsterpocalypse will appeal to both players of the original game as well as newcomers to the world of miniatures.
What is the difference between the 2008 Monsterpocalypse and the new Monsterpocalypse?
The original Monsterpocalypse game released in 2008 was a pre-painted collectible miniatures game. The figures in the game came pre-assembled and painted and were available through blind-buy booster boxes.
The new version of Monsterpocalypse releasing this fall is a hobby miniatures game. The models will no longer come pre-assembled and painted and will not be sold in blind-buy boxes. Instead, players will purchase the models they want and then assemble, customize, and paint them to create a force that is uniquely their own.
The new Monsterpocalypse rules represent an improved second edition of the original game rather than a completely new game. In developing the new Monsterpocalypse, we worked hard to tighten and streamline the rules while keeping the core game experience of the original game intact. Perhaps the biggest change has been making two-monster games (with each player controlling two monsters) the standard, alongside the more traditional single-monster battles of the original game.
Due to the difference in scale, original Monsterpocalypse figures will not work in the new game. All official Monsterpocalypse tournaments and events will require players to use the new hobby models for play.
