Pandemic Legacy: Season 0 has not yet had an exact release date, now we probably know for what reason. As Asmodee has announced, the third part of the Legacy trilogy for Spiel Digital will go on sale. This means that fans cannot buy the board game at the fair, but they can buy it during the fair.
In the Corona year, many things follow their own rules. Even the exclusive shopping for board games is completely different than usual due to the trade fair event being canceled or moved to the Internet. Instead of on site in Essen, fans of Asmodee parlor games can at least go on a shopping spree during the trade fair if the general conditions have changed: The publisher has the motto "Back in the game in your city" was proclaimed. What does that mean? Stationary game retailers receive exclusive Asmodee news, which then during the Game digital sold. And by the way, Pandemic Legacy: Season 0 will get a release date as a result, because the end of the trilogy will also be available then.
17 new titles are on the market - maybe even more
The stores that work with Asmodee are currently invited to register for the promotion. The publisher would like to show the new products to as many people as possible without visiting the trade fair in Essen. Participating retailers will then receive exclusive game titles, including Pandemic Legacy: Season 0 by Z-Man, but also the highly acclaimed one Forgotten Waters from Plaid Hat Games or the new Hans-im-Glück hit Paleo in stores almost hot off the press.
And some trade fair flair is provided by promoters who are on site in the shops as "explanators" to teach players the rules and present the games. Fans also don't have to do without goodies, i.e. promotional items that will be available especially for Spiel Digital.
“At Asmodee we are all sad that this year the fair will take place completely digitally. We are very curious and look forward to the new ideas and possibilities on the web. But we still don't want to miss out on this feeling of browsing, discovering and meeting, ”says Yvette Vaessen, Commercial Director of Asmodee Germany. The concept was therefore considered taking into account the protection against infection. The stores are already optimally set for Corona.
In order to be able to find the participating shops, Asmodee will distribute relevant information on the publisher's website and on social media. And: In addition to unboxing videos, presentations of the exclusive promos or presentations of the games, there will be other content that will get the players in the mood for the fair feeling and make them want the fantastic autumn novelties, according to the publisher.
