An iconic and unforgiving playground of endless possibilities awaits. Time to live. Or time to die.  

Walk the mean streets of Los Angeles 2037 in the new tabletop roleplaying game from the award-winning team behind the hit ALIEN RPG. Free League Publishing today released the official BLADE RUNNER The Roleplaying Game, voted Most Anticipated RPG of 2022 by EN World.

Set in the year 2037, your adventure begin shortly after the Wallace Corporation debuts the new Nexus-9 Replicants on Earth. The game propels you into the streets of Los Angeles as Blade Runners with unique specialties, personalities – and memories. The game pushes the boundaries of investigative gameplay in tabletop RPGs, giving you a range of tools to solve an array of cases far beyond retiring Replicants.

Beyond the core casework, the game showcases the key themes of Blade Runner – sci-fi action, corporate intrigue, existential character drama, and moral conflict. It challenges you to question your friends, empathize with your enemies, and explore the poisons and perseverance of hope and humanity during inhumane times.

BLADE RUNNER The Roleplaying Game is now available in the Free League webshop and at retailers worldwide, in PDF  format at DriveThruRPG and as a VTT module on Foundry and Roll20.

BLADE RUNNER RPG Starter Set

The boxed BLADE RUNNER RPG Starter Set contains everything needed to start playing:

  • A 80-page condensed rulebook.
  • The 56-page booklet Electric Dreams – the first full-length Case File for Blade Runners to crack.
  • Four pre-generated characters to play.
  • A huge full color map of Los Angeles in 2037.
  • 26 full-color evidence handouts for the players, including crime scene photos, data files, documents, maps, and more.
  • A custom manila envelope for the players to keep their evidence in.
  • A Time Tracker Sheet.
  • 70 high quality custom cards for non-player characters, chase maneuvers and obstacles, and initiative in combat.
  • Eight engraved, transparent custom dice – two each of D6, D8, D10 and D12.
It doesn’t matter if inside you is a soul or synthetics. Because when you pull that blaster, you’re nothing but a Blade Runner. The closest thing this city’s got to a fighting chance. And you’ve got a job to do.
Other than that, it’s just a normal day on the force, so get to work and grab some noodles on the way. That stack of cases won’t crack itself. It’s a shame you won’t live long enough to solve them all. But then again, who does?
The rules of the game are based on the acclaimed Year Zero Engine, used in award-winning games such as the official ALIEN RPG, Vaesen – Nordic Horror Roleplaying, Tales From the Loop and Forbidden Lands, but further developed and uniquely tailored for the world of BLADE RUNNER.
Tomas Härenstam, Free League co-founder and lead game designer of the ALIEN RPG, fills the same role for the BLADE RUNNER RPG. Original artwork comes from lead ALIEN RPG artist Martin Grip, with Joe LeFavi of Genuine Entertainment is serving as the lead setting writer, brand manager, and producer on the game series.
