WizKids Announces Blade Runner 2049: Nexus Protocol

He say you blade runner.

You know, the problem with making robots that look, sound, act, move, and think exactly like humans is that it can be difficult to tell who is a robot (or replicant, as they're known) and who is a person. This might not be so much an issue if being a replicant on Earth weren't a crime. Several replicants have gotten loose and its up to you and the other Blade Runners to find them. Or, maybe, YOU'RE the replicant! That's what you'll have to figure out in Blade Runner 2049: Nexus Protocol, a new social deduction game coming from WizKids.

From the post:

WizKids is thrilled to announce that Blade Runner 2049: Nexus Protocol, a new deduction game based on the iconic sci-fi classic, is coming soon!

In this hidden identity game, 3-6 players will take on the roles of Blade Runners, joining Deckard to hunt down a replicant that remains at large. The replicant could be any one of the players, or even Deckard himself! With a limited number of rounds to identify the replicant, players must interrogate witnesses in order to acquire and reveal Evidence cards which will ultimately reveal the Replicant’s identity. But players must act quickly- if the game ends before any player has 2 or 3 of the Replicant’s Evidence cards in their Case File, the Replicant escapes and wins the game.

Will you hunt down the Replicant in time? Find out in Blade Runner 2049: Nexus Protocol, coming April 2020! Preorder at your Friendly Local Game Store or online today!
