Staying Under Cover
2nd April 2020
First of all, I just wanted to pass on well wishes to everyone from Rebellion Unplugged to all of you reading. We know how troubling a time this is for everyone in this unprecedented global crisis, and the huge challenges we are all set to face in the coming weeks and months.
With all that in mind, we’ve taken the difficult decision to delay launching the Sniper Elite the Board Game Kickstarter campaign. Simply put, we don’t want to ask you to support the project right now when there are bigger, more important things to worry about.
In the meantime Sniper Elite the Board Game is progressing really well, and so we are now working towards launching the Kickstarter campaign later this year.
Over the coming weeks we’ll continue to develop new content for the game, including a brand new single player mode! We also have other MEGA exciting tabletop announcements lined up in the near-future… so do stay tuned!
Please make sure to follow us on the Rebellion Unplugged website, Twitter and Facebook pages where we’ll keep you updated on everything Sniper Elite the Board Game over the coming months.
In the meantime stay safe and well, and keep indoors! Maybe give Sniper Elite 4 another go and take out Hitler with a perfectly fired sniper bullet…
Oh, and while we’re here, how about a hint of things to come?
All the best,
Duncan and the Rebellion Unplugged team

Announcing Rebellion Unplugged
12th November 2019
‘Rebellion Unplugged’ to begin slate with title based on bestselling tactical shooter video game series, Sniper Elite.
Rebellion, one of Europe’s largest independent creative studios, is proud to announce its brand new board game division, Rebellion Unplugged. The first game from the new offshoot will be Sniper Elite the Board Game, based on the studio’s bestselling tactical shooter series.
Headed up by Duncan Molloy, previously the Founder and Creative Lead of the board game line at Osprey Games, Rebellion Unplugged will release new physical games and collectables based on the company’s diverse and extensive collection of properties. Several games are already in the works.
Rebellion operates across games, TV, books, comics and film. Among many others, its library of IPs includes the beloved sci-fi universes of 2000 AD, the upcoming spy-fi lair-builder Evil Genius 2, and the multi-million selling Zombie Army series – the next instalment of which, Zombie Army 4: Dead War, comes to PS4, Xbox One and PC on February 4th.
“We’re absolutely delighted to be launching Rebellion Unplugged,” said Rebellion CEO and founder Jason Kingsley OBE. “My brother Chris and I have been making video games for more than 25 years, and our love of the medium has its roots in our childhood love of board games. We’ve got so many great games and comic book heroes and universes to draw from too, so it’s going to be a lot of fun.”
