On the eve of Gen Con 50, CMON held a sneak-peek preview of upcoming games, including three exciting 2018 releases that won’t be formally announced until a later date.

Mark Millar and John Romita Jr.’s wildly popular comic series Kick-Ass will be adapted for the tabletop in Kick-Ass: The Board Game.  Details were scarce, beyond the highly-detailed prototype character miniatures and plans for a direct trade release in 2018 with no Kickstarter.

Another comic-based game being teased was Hate, based on fantasy artist Adrian Smith’s Chronicles of Hate graphic novels which were released in the U.S. by Top Cow/Image Comics in 2014 and 2016.  The game will be CMON's next Kickstarter.

The Arcadia Quest line of games (see "CMON Rolls Out Expansions for 'Arcadia Quest'") will add a new element to gameplay with Arcadia Quest: Riders.  The miniature characters will be able to ‘ride’ on a variety of large mounts. Trade release is planned for 2018.

Bloodborne: The Card Game (see "'Bloodborne: The Card Game'"), designed by Eric M. Lang, will add a new layer of complexity with The Hunter’s Nightmare expansion in Q1.  There are new Hunter Upgrade Cards, Chalice Dungeon Cards, and Chalice Dungeon Boss Cards; as well as Rune Cards, Final Boss cards and 15 Death Tokens. Release is planned for Q1 2018.

Two new Euro-games will be joining CMON’s upcoming Richard the Lionheart  (see "'Richard the Lionheart,' 'Meeple War,' 'Potion Explosion: The Fifth Ingredient,' More") as more "heavy-weight" gamers’ game offerings: Way of the Panda (late Q1 2018) and Council of 4  (Q1 2018).

CMON also shared updated trade release plans on several highly-anticipated, high-dollar Kickstarter successes: Rising Sun (see "CMON Reveals Eric Lang's 'Rising Sun'") (Q1 2018), Zombicide: Green Horde (see "Zombie Orcs Invade 'Zombicide'") (Q2 2018), and A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game (see "Stark and Lannister Clash for Control of the Seven Kingdoms") (April 2018).
