WizKids is most well-known for its Dice Masters, HeroClix, and Star Trek Attack Wing games, but it looks like they are making a conscious effort to expand their horizons.  Now they have announced that they are bringing a new card game in March, The Banishing.

WizKids is pleased to announce the upcoming release of a new co-operative card game, The Banishing. This March, the undead will threaten to take over the world. An unlikely group will join forces to fight against evil.  Find out who will be triumphant on the tabletop in The Banishing.

Designed by Sean Rumble, The Banishing brings players into a world being overcome by undead creatures. Players take on the roles of the guardians who must work together to banish the undead back through the Void.

As guardians, each player is a unique character with special abilities that can be activated by collecting cards and creating matches. The Sorcerer can conjure and enchant. The Fighter can taunt and imprison. The Healer can bless and revive. The Banishing introduces eight characters, each with six unique skills, for players to choose from.

Visit your friendly local game store to pre-order The Banishing for your game collection today!

I’m always glad to see new cooperative games come out, and since this is a card game the cost of entry should be low.  Hopefully we’ll see more details soon.
