Get ready for Gears of War: The Board Game

At long last, the Gears of War merchandise you’ve been asking for has been announced; Fantasy Flight Games are to release a board game based on Epic’s third-person franchise (as found by GameInformer).

Keeping the spirit of the videogame alive, Gears offers four player co-op action (though maybe ‘action’ isn’t the right word) where each player controls a COG soldier. The objectives undertaken in seven unique scenarios see players seizing territory from the Locust. Maps can be randomized for each play through.

The set, priced at $79.95, includes over 30 plastic figures and over 200 cards. No word on release date. Personally, we were hoping for Gears of War Monopoly, but this will suffice.
