The new project from acclaimed tabletop developer Fantasy Flight Games lets up to four friends play cooperatively to bring down the Locust horde.

An exciting new webpage popped up today over at Fantasy Flight's website, announcing that Gears of War is on its way to your table thanks to a new cooperative game designed by Corey Konieczka (Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game, Mansions of Madness).

Gears of War: The Board Game puts each player in charge of a COG soldier. As a team, the players will work together to secure territory from the Horde in one of seven unique scenarios, and along maps that are randomized for each playthrough.

The game will come with over 30 plastic figures, over 200 cards, and the expected array of tiles, dice, and rules. The game's website includes a price of &79.95, but there's no listing for release date quite yet.

We're big fans of co-op board games, so we'll be keeping an eye on this game as it gets closer to release.
