Crime is rampant in the Mega-City. Will you be one of the criminals–or will you be the Law? The new Judge Dredd RPG wants to know.
Judge Dredd and the Worlds of 2000 AD is coming to your tabletop–as early as today if you get the PDF version. Physical copies are being delayed, owing to, you know, everything right now. But Modiphius has hopes that the physical copies of the game will ship sometime in May. Either way, it’s time to suit up and explore one of the sci-fi settings that helped inspire Warhammer 40K and countless others.
The worlds of 2000 AD are ripe for adventure, whether you’re a mutant bounty hunter, a criminal gang looking to make it big or more. Here’s a look at the core book and the first expansion: Robot Wars.
Welcome to the worlds of 2000 AD!
Voyage into the far future in this versatile tabletop game of science fiction adventure.
Mutant bounty hunters hunt down the scum of the universe. The noble houses of a resurgent imperial Russia use every means at their disposal to attempt to become the supreme power; using bribery, assassination, espionage, diplomacy and war. The solar system is invaded by the Geeks – a hostile alien race hell bent on the destruction of mankind, on Earth and her colonies in the solar system. Criminal hitmen fulfil their contracts, blasting their way though rivals and bodyguards to achieve their bloody payday. Occult investigators hunt down demons and restless spirits threatening both the lives and souls of the people of Britain.
And then there is Dredd. The top lawman in a vast city over 800 million citizens he contends with criminals, mutant raiders, aliens, rogue robots and enemy agents from other, hostile, megacities.
