Discover: Lands Unknown Preview

FFG has posted the first preview of exploration in their survival game Discover: Lands Unknown.

You’ve awoken to find yourself far from home. The vast wilderness stretches before you, the days are long and every night is a struggle to survive. While you’re not sure how you ended up here, you know that answers won’t come from sitting around the meager campsite you’ve constructed. You’ll need to explore to find food, water, and most importantly, a way home!

Join us today as we look at how to get your bearings and explore the world around you in Discover: Lands Unknown!

Discover: Lands Unknows is called a “Unique Game” by FFG. Here is the explanation of what this term means:

[…] meaning every copy in the world is different. Through a sorting algorithm, the combination of components found in your game will be unlike any other copy in existence. While your group of survivors may find themselves stranded in a dense forest or on a freezing mountaintop, your friend’s copy may see a different group of survivors trying to escape a deserted island or harsh desert. However, each game is still monitored by the same set of rules that will guide you in your journey into the unknown.

The game has a planned release date sometime in December and is available now to pre-order.

I was never a big fan of the card game because I thought it was much too fiddly, but I could be tempted to try out the digital edition.
