Replicant Rebellion Expansion For Blade Runner: The Roleplaying Game Launches May 28th

Share This Post

Free League Publishing has announced that a Kickstarter for Replicant Rebellion, a mammoth expansion for the award-winning Blade Runner: The Roleplaying Game, is launching on May 28, 2024.

Replicant Rebellion massively expands the scope of the critically acclaimed tabletop RPG, recruiting players to join the ranks of the Replicant Underground in Los Angeles 2037. Set at the same time and place as the Core Rulebook, players explore this neon-noir cityscape from the opposite perspective – now running from Blade Runners in an evocative cat & mouse race of provocateurs and powder kegs lit to explode, expose, and oppose the establishment, one way or another.

For the Rebellion, players will run their own independent crew who must undertake a variety of operations, all while attempting to maintain their cover and keep their records clean. Are they helping fugitive Replicants evade capture? Sabotaging the Replicant trade? Grappling with the cops, courts, and megacorps? Clashing with warring crews and syndicates? Smoking out moles in your midst? In this big city of dazzling lights and moral contradictions, Replicant Rebellion flips the famous script of the beloved Blade Runner universe and dares you to explore how much you’re willing to lose for a cause that’s sacrificing it all. Yet regardless the price, the Rebellion must live on.

This Kickstarter campaign also offers an Asset Pack for use with both Replicant Rebellion and the core game. The Asset Pack includes a host of physical and digital handouts and tools for the Game Runner to create their own Case Files and Operations.
