We finally know when the RuneScape Kingdoms: Shadow of Elvarg board game will be available to back on Kickstarter! The announcement comes following multiple announcements clarifying what the game will actually be and how it will play.
If you're interested in backing the project - which will be developed by Steamforged Games - then you can do so from Tuesday, 31 May 2022. This is when the product page will be live and you can find out what tiers are available to support.
Like many of the previous Steamforged campaigns like Dark Souls, Monster Hunter: World and Resident Evil, there is sure to be an incredible wave of early support for the project.
In no way do we expect this campaign to fall short and we are instead looking forward to the stretch goals that will be on offer.
Some have challenged why Steamforged continues to use Kickstarter for their projects but the platform is in no way a nefarious means to extort money for incomplete projects.
Kickstarter allows Steamforged and Jagex to gauge the interest in the RuneScape Kingdoms board game and strategise around demand. This typically works out better for those who become early adopters as they get early access to bonus material that might not be available once the game hits retailers.
You can head to the RuneScape Kingdoms: Shadow of Elvarg page on Kickstarter right now to be notified as soon as the project is live! At the time of writing, over 6,400 people have signed up and there's still over a month to go!
