The truth is out there.

And soon, so will the board game, as IDW Games prepares to launch its new The X Files big box game.

Drawing heavily from the first three seasons of the popular science fiction series, the new game will allow players to adopt the role of Fox Mulder or Dana Scully.

Scheduled for release this July, The X Files board game has been designed for a playtime of between 60 and 90 minutes and will allow two to five players face off against one other who controls either the Smoking Man or the nefarious Syndicate.

“To me, there’s no more exciting title than The X Files,” said Jerry Bennington, IDW’s director.

“Who wouldn’t want the chance to play as the wise cracking Fox Mulder or the incredibly intelligent Dana Scully? And what show created more classic villains than The X Files?”
