Welcome to Mantic Monday!

Every Monday we will bring you exclusive video content, behind the scenes peaks at the day to day of Mantic HQ, all your hobby and gaming tips, plus an array of exciting and engaging content from all the Mantic game systems and universes. Let us know if there’s something you would like to see!

Welcome soldier to the battle for Magnetar City!

Since Containment Protocols were declared, the beleaguered city has attracted attention from all over the galaxy. Although billed as an ‘entertainment planet’, if you scratch below the glittering surface, there’s a much darker side to Magnetar that’s ripe for the taking.

This week Ronnie is getting all excited about the launch of the new Deadzone campaign and so should you! Check out this video to help whet your appetite!

Over the coming weeks, you’ll have the opportunity to choose your faction and battle it out to take control of Magnetar’s various districts. Each week we’ll be unveiling a new district in the city to battle over with some (optional) narrative rules available for that location, before ending in a dramatic finale for the future of Magnetar.

Check out the schedule below for the starting dates for each week and get ready to play along and help us shape the story.


Week 1 – 16th May – Deadzone Campaign Launch / Location 1 Revealed / Results Submission Open

Week 2 – 23rd May – Location 2 Revealed

Deadzone takes place in containment zones – cities or whole planets that have been erased from planetary maps and left for dead. You control an elite team of soldiers ready to enter the potentially lethal Deadzone and scavenge for whatever lucrative resources you can find. But competition is fierce, and other Strike Teams will be out to thwart you on your mission. Get in, get out, get rich, or get dead.

Deadzone: Rulebook & Force Lists

In the far-flung worlds of the galaxy, humans and aliens clash in the battlefields of the future. The galaxy is full of opportunity, adventure peril and horror for those willing to gamble life for profit. Beyond the core worlds of the planets settled by humanity, the GCPS has made new allies and faced alien threats, as the mega corporations strip planets of their resources with no regard for the inhabitants. As a result, humankind has both encroached upon, and consumed, ancient races and star realms. But when alien horrors are uncovered, or deadly new diseases take hold, whole planets are shut off from civilization under a Containment Protocol, and wiped from navigational maps. With the veil of civilization lifted, rival factions descend into furious conflict, each with their own unique claim to the spoils of the ensuing chaos.

Deadzone is the fast-paced, breathtakingly elegant, and immersive game of sci-fi skirmish combat for two players.

Together, these books include all of the core rules you’ll need to play, a full campaign system, updated unit lists for each faction, and 16 exciting missions to challenge your strike forces.
