Days of Wonder has announced an upcoming collaboration with Blizzard Entertaiment by introducing Small World of Warcraft. Small World of Warcraft is a new board game combining the Small World game mechanics with Blizzard’s celebrated Warcraft universe.
Previewed at BlizzCon 2019, the game is set on the fantasy world of Azeroth, where the races of the Alliance and the Horde – including Orcs, Dwarves, Trolls, and Worgen – clash in a world-consuming conflict.
In Small World of Warcraft, players choose combinations of special powers and races from the Warcraft universe, such as Portal Mage Pandarens or Herbalist Goblins, and vie for control of Azeroth. To help them achieve dominance, players will occupy legendary terrains and seek control of powerful artifacts.
The board game features a variety of new and exclusive artwork that captures the feel of the colorful and vibrant Warcraft universe, with races and special powers designed to be familiar to the millions of WoW players around the world who have already explored the far reaches of Azeroth online.
“Working alongside Blizzard has been an amazing experience. Not only did our vision for the game quickly align, but the creative work we’ve done together has been intense and extremely satisfying,” said Adrien Martinot, head of Days of Wonder. “Blizzard allowed us to deep dive into their rich Warcraft universe, and I’m eager to see this incredible cooperation come to light when the game releases.”
Small World of Warcraft is a standalone game designed for 2 to 5 players and can be completed in 40 to 80 minutes. The game is expected to be available in Summer 2020 in North America and Europe for $59.99 and will be available in multiple languages, including English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Polish, Brazilian Portuguese, Czech, Slovak, Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese.
