Taking Nominees for Most Anticipated RPG of 2018

Status
Not open for further replies.
As we do every year, I'm taking nominees for the big public poll. A game will only be in the big poll if it is nominated here. What's your most anticipated RPG of 2018? Rules - as always - it must be a standalone RPG. NOT a supplement, adventure, sourcebook, expansion, or accessory. It must be scheduled for release in 2018. If they were coming out in 2018, Dungeons & Dragons would count; Xanathar's Guide would not. Taking nominations for one week. Post your nomination as a reply below.
Please don't nominate your own game or one you’re affiliated with.

Last year's winner was Trudvang Chronicles from RiotMinds (pictured above). You can see last year's top 10 here. The previous year it was Rifts for Savage Worlds. And yes, Conan appeared three years running.

Genesys by Fantasy Flight Games.

I love the narrative play mechanics and the character progression mechanics using specializations that allow you mix-match/dabble wherever the story takes you.

Is Savage Worlds: Flash Gordon a game or a supplement?

I did notice The Onyx Path's Trinity Continuum, which should be Kickstarted early in the year, and may be a swift release in conjunction to a new edition of Scion (which shares the same system).

Is there any hope of Cyberpunk 2077 being anything other than vapourware next year?

And a final observation that all these nominees are essentially new editions of old games. It's difficult to anticipate brand new games, arguably, but does anybody know of any for 2018, regardless?

Flash Gordon is a setting and not a complete game, so isn't valid according to the guidelines. I'm looking forward to that too :)

Genesys is out next week. On the plus we get it now, on the negative it means it won't be included on the '2018 Hot List' :(

Most of the stuff I think looks cool for 2018 is classed as supplements to existing games so don’t qualify...that WFRP cover looks pretty mint...if they keep it more like 1st Edition and not quite so utterly grimdark then it has my vote :)
 


WFRPG 4th Edition for me.

1) Prince Valiant, the Storytelling Game - Nice to see this cross the finish line, as it was Stuart Wieck's passion project before his untimely passing.
2) Delta Green - I've been waiting since 2015. What's another year?
3) This Defiant Earth - Another Kickstarter I backed; looks like hecka fun. 1950's mad scientists and giant bugs and UFOs!

Considering the 2 main books have been released to Kickstarter backers (not sure about the retail channels), I'd classify Delta Green as having been released in 2017.

Looking at my outstanding Kickstarters, the ones that jump out are Sigil & Sign and the already-mentioned Torg: Eternity and Top Secret: NWO.

Maybe do this same thing, but for supplements? It would be an eclectic list for sure...

For me I'd have to go with the following:

Legend of the Five Rings
Alternity
Esper Genesis
Tiny Dungeons 2e
7th Sea: Khitai
Capharnaum
Mutant Crawl Classics

Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 4th Ed. Absolutely my top choice for next year (and it should even release in 2018 :)).

A few other suggestions for the list include:
The Expanse
Alternity
Witcher
Top Secret: New World Order
