See How the Other Side Lives in the First Expansion for Blade Runner The Role Playing Game, Replicant Rebellion

Join the Replicant Underground in the Upcoming Expansion to Free League’s Celebrated Tabletop RPG Series

Stockholm, Sweden (May 16, 2024)  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.

Sign up at the Replicant Rebellion Kickstarter Page here.

The Kickstarter will be launched on May 28th at 6:00 am US Pacific Time (9 am US Eastern, 3 pm Central European). Backers and retailers alike eager to enlist should visit the Kickstarter pre-launch page and sign up to be notified the moment the campaign goes live. If successfully funded, all backers will get the PDF version of Replicant Rebellion months ahead of the official release. All backers who pledge levels with physical rewards within the first 24 hours will receive a bonus item to be revealed soon.

  • An in-depth overview of the history and organization of the Replicant Underground, charting its presence throughout the Blade Runner Universe.
  • Detailed guidelines on how to play a Replicant Underground campaign, including several new player character archetypes and various new rules, such as maintaining Covers and sweating the Heat as the law closes in.

Blade Runner The Roleplaying Game

The Blade Runner RPG core game was released in 2022, earning multiple industry awards. The game pushes the boundaries of investigative gameplay in tabletop RPGs, giving players a range of tools to solve an array of cases far beyond just retiring Replicants. The rules are based on the acclaimed Year Zero Engine, used in other award-winning games such as the ALIEN RPG, Tales from the Loop, and Forbidden Lands, but further developed and uniquely tailored for Blade Runner.
