The third part of the award-winning legacy game series Pandemic Legacy by Matt Leacock and Rob Daviau will be released this year. “Zero” is the number of the new offshoot, which places players right in the middle of the Cold War. The board game is confirmed to be released this year Asmodee Deutschland
Pandemic Legacy: Season 0 is set many years before the modern spin-offs and serves as a prequel to the trilogy. It is 1962: the Spiegel affair, the founding of the Rolling Stones, the death of Marilyn Monroe, but above all the Cold War dominate current affairs - and then there are also the Soviets with their dangerous bioweapons project. At least the latter is fiction. And the hook for part "Zero" from Pandemic Legacy.
CIA agents on a secret mission
In Pandemic Legacy: Season 0, two to four players take on the roles of CIA agents. They must operate undercover to investigate - and ultimately stop - a dangerous Soviet project. That's the premise of Matt Leacock and Rob Daviau's new Legacy game. Deadly war weapons catastrophe instead of "just a virus" so to speak.
The players have to work together, decide together, cooperate. Over the course of a campaign spanning a year in the game, players will be tasked with missions that will take them to the far corners of the earth: from Washington DC to the tundra of Siberia. Each success or failure will bring them closer to the truth about the Soviets, "MEDUSA" and their fellow agents.
Just like the first two installments in the Pandemic: Legacy trilogy, new cards, rules, and conditions are introduced with each game, each affecting future games. The legacy factor, i.e. the permanent changes, makes every game unique and every game a special experience for the group of players. The classic: stickers add positive as well as negative additions, locked boxes bring new material into play during the campaign, events and tasks are added when the legacy card deck dictates.
The teaser gives a foretaste of the board game:
The first part of the series appeared in 2015, the successor around two years later. The reviews were overwhelming back then, are still today and will - probably - also be again with Pandemic Legacy: Season 0. The board game should appear this year, but Asmodee has not yet announced an exact release date.
