Described as a “hidden identity game designed to push you to the edge,” The Thing: Infection at Outpost 31 will allow you to relive John Carpenter’s classic horror film like never before.

We honestly didn’t know that The Thing board game was coming soon, but today we’ve been provided with a first look at the finished product that’s headed our way in time for Halloween. The game “recreates the tension and mystery of The Thing as players race to discover who among them are infected in the hidden identity game play engine.”

In the game…

An alien lifeform has infiltrated a bleak and desolate Antarctic research station assimilating other organisms and then imitating them. In the hidden identity game The Thing: Infection at Outpost 31, you will relive John Carpenter’s sci-fi cult classic in a race to discover who among the team has been infected by this heinous lifeform.

Play as one of a dozen characters like helicopter pilot MacReady, mechanic Childs, or station manager Garry. Face sabotage and infection as you investigate the facility—gather gear, battle The Thing, expose any imitations among you, and escape Outpost 31!

Look for it in stories and online this October, with Mondo getting an exclusive version.

Are you excited? We are!
