Mantic Previews Firefight in 2022

Mantic is going through their games, giving us a look at how they're going to be updated and added to this year. This time around, it's Firefight. The game is getting a new edition this year. Get a look at it in this preview.

From the article:

The original Firefight launched back in 2016 and, although it had a great range of hard plastic miniatures and amazing vehicles, it never really developed a large enough player base to see it played by numerous clubs, stores and individual gaming groups. Of course, this is a massive shame because there are plenty of you out there with fantastic miniatures that may be gathering dust on a shelf.

In 2021 we want to change all that with the launch of Firefight: Second Edition. This is a complete rework of the original from the ground up, and also an attempt to bring it closer to Deadzone. For starters it uses D8s, rather than D6s, and some of the terminology will be familiar from Deadzone. What’s more, if you’re familiar with how the profile of a unit works in Deadzone, then it’s likely to be similar in Firefight too.
