Le bien connu jeu de plateau Axis & Allies reprend cette année la voie d’une adaptation sur PC, car il y avait déjà eu vers 2010 une version chez Game Table Online, qui a fermé en 2015. Pour le moment mis à part le teaser ci-dessus aucune image du jeu n’est disponible, et on sait tout au plus via la FAQ que cette nouvelle adaptation utilisera les règles de Axis & Allies 1942 Second Edition, qu’elle sera pour 2 à 5 joueurs mais disposera d’une IA permettant de jouer aussi en solo, qu’il y aura une version Early Access via Steam, ou encore que le jeu comportera un système asynchrone, permettant à chacun de jouer son tour quand il a le temps.

Au passage, pour l’anecdote concernant cette série, sachez qu’est paru à la fin de l’automne dernier une version du jeu de plateau ajoutant des zombies à l’équation, voyez par ici chez Avalon Hill si intéressé par l’idée.

Pour plus d’informations sur Axis & Allies Online, dont la sortie est prévue sur PC, Mac et Linux on ne sait quand encore, voyez le site officiel.

Beamdog announces official adaptation of tabletop classic: Axis & Allies Online

EDMONTON, CANADA— February 11, 2019. Today video game developer Beamdog announced Axis & Allies Online, an official adaptation of the classic board game, Axis & Allies. Axis & Allies Online will be released as a Steam Early Access title for Windows, macOS and Linux, priced at $19.99 USD.

“Growing up, I had two favourite games, Dungeons & Dragons and Axis & Allies. As a long-time Axis & Allies player, I’m excited to be able to recreate this classic game for other avid fans— and for new online audiences,” said Trent Oster, Beamdog CEO. “Axis & Allies Online captures the tactics and friendly rivalry of the board game with a few key differences: there’s no setup or cleanup, and you can’t flip the table when you’re losing.”

Axis & Allies Online adapts rules from Axis & Allies: 1942 Second Edition, a turn-based strategy board game in which players act as World War II powers on either side of the conflict: the Allied forces of United Kingdom, the United States and the Soviet Union, or the Axis powers of Germany and Japan.

“We know there is an appetite for an online version of Axis & Allies within the tabletop community, not necessarily to replace the board game, but as a way to play when your gaming group can’t meet up, or when you don’t have time to commit to a full game.” Oster continued, “Our online version is a great way for new players to discover the fun of this classic game.”

Axis & Allies Online players act as one or more of the world powers, with a maximum of five players in a single game. Multiplayer games can include both AI and human players; players also have the option to play on their own against AI. With asynchronous play, players can take turns on their own time and watch opponent’s moves in observer mode.

Oster says Beamdog’s adaptation successfully captures the spirit the original, “Axis & Allies Online is a loyal implementation of the 1942 Second Edition rules. We love the board game and we’re incredibly excited to bring that experience to the desktop,” said Trent Oster. Beyond its classic gameplay, Axis & Allies Online offers interactive maps, combat summaries, and dramatic music and sound effects.
