In an announcement on its blog, developer 11 bit studios said that the board game will not just be a repeat of the game in a new format, but instead serve as a deeper dive into the world that the previous game created:

The board game significantly broadens the original game’s universe and emphasizes the depth of the plot, yet its main focus will be on human interactions driven by survival instinct and group decision-making.

The board game will allow for up to six players and also include a solo play option. The blog post made a point of the “hundreds of new challenges and difficult choices” that players would face in the new game, suggesting that it will be just as re-playable as the original title.

Furthermore, 11 bit studios emphasized that it wants players to jump right into the new game and try to survive as best they can: it will be “omitting the usual board game threshold”:

…this project will be extremely ambitious because it aims to omit the usual board game threshold – TTWOM the board game will be an INSTANT-PLAY game, with no need to read the manual before starting the adventure.

The upcoming game will be a collaboration with veteran tabletop designers Michal Oracz and Jakub Wisniewski.
