Fantasy Flight Games this weekend announced Doom: The Board Game, a tabletop adaptation of Id Software's recent video game bearing the same title.

The game is based around asymmetrical tactical combat, with one "invader" player controlling demons and up to four more players playing UAC marines.

It follows two six-mission campaigns, each taking place on a series of unique maps, each bearing different objectives and threats.

Marine players can customise equipment loadouts and abilities, while the invader player can summon masses of demons, represented by custom-sculpted plastic figures.

Video game-specific features like Glory Kills and Telefragging are also represented in the game.

Fantasy Flight had previously released a different Doom board game in 2004, based chiefly on Doom 3, which gained PvP play in a 2005 expansion.

That title, however, was discontinued upon the release of Descent: Journeys in the Dark, a fantasy game based on the Doom board game's mechanics.

It has also worked with other video game properties before, notably for board game adaptations of Civilization and XCOM.

Doom: The Board Game will release in the fourth quarter of 2016.
