Battle Chasers to return as comic and game

Battle Chasers is returning as both a game and a comic and Polygon has the exclusive details, along with some new concept screens.

Fourteen years after the ninth issue of comic book Battle Chasers saw the end of the series, Joe Madureira and are former Vigil co-founder Ryan Stefanelli bringing it back as both a comic and a game.

Speaking to Polygon, Madureira says he's not ready to describe the Battle Chasers game in detail yet, but that it will be a PC and tablet RPG and will see players control classic Battle Chasers characters including Garrison, Gully and Calibretto. He also adds that the game will feature a sense of adventure similar to the Darksiders games.

"Even though the game mechanically is going to be very different from Darksiders, I think we're still really going to be doing everything we can to make sure that the dungeon exploration side of the game is soaked with lots of fun adventurous elements," says Stefanelli.

There is currently no release date or publisher for the title and at the moment as Airship is looking for funding for the game and hasn't decided whether it'll be from an investor, a publisher or Kickstarter. 

"We're going to sort of let fate decide for us exactly how we should best pay for the game," says Stefanelli.

"I've always wanted to do an animated series, possibly, so there's a couple of different options that we're pursuing for bringing the franchise back in a big way," added Madureira.

Here's the new screens.
