The character Judge Dredd celebrated his 40th birthday in 2017, probably by running over a few scofflaws with his bike, and in 2018 Dredd will appear in Judge Dredd: The Cursed Earth, a title from UK publisher Osprey Games that originated from Peer Sylvester's cooperative game The Lost Expedition, which Osprey released in 2017. From the press release:

Quote:
Duncan Molloy, Games Developer at Osprey Games, has worked with Rebellion [Developments] to create a new Judge Dredd game using the core mechanics of Osprey's bestselling 2017 release, The Lost Expedition, from designer Peer Sylvester. Discussing the project, he said, "I'm a huge fan of The Lost Expedition, and from early in development it felt like the best example I've seen of a board game capturing the tone of a comic book. To be able to pair the system with one of the most interesting and detailed comic book worlds ever devised has been a joy. Judge Dredd: The Cursed Earth will feature entirely new mechanics, such as radiation tracking and psychic abilities, to really capture the feel of Dredd's world."

Rebellion's Brand Licensing Manager, Damien Treece, commented, "We're thrilled to be working with the team at Osprey Games on this new partnership. Osprey and Duncan have a terrific understanding of the world of Judge Dredd and a reputation for publishing high quality games, leaving us in no doubt that Judge Dredd: The Cursed Earth will be a perfect fit."

As for the setting and gameplay in this title, Osprey offers this description:

Quote:
For years he's been the law in Mega City One, but now it's time for Judge Dredd to bring justice to the rest of America. It's time for him to venture into the Cursed Earth.

Featuring competitive, co-operative and solo player modes and brand-new, specially commissioned artwork, Judge Dredd: The Cursed Earth is an immersive sci-fi western in which players must lead a team of judges against dinosaurs, mutants, and the Cursed Earth itself in search of an object of immense power before it falls into the wrong hands. As they scour the wastelands, the team will encounter a host of iconic 2000AD characters that will push their resources and abilities to their limits. On an impossible journey through radioactive hell, can even the judges survive the Cursed Earth?

By chance, Peer Sylvester's designer diary on The Lost Expedition is scheduled for publication on BGG News on Saturday, Dec. 2, 2017.
