The original Planet of the Apes movie series is undergoing the board game treatment courtesy of IDW Games.

The board game publisher has teamed with Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products to launch the first title in a planned series of games.

Planet of the Apes will follow the plot of the original movie and sees each player take control of one aspect of Colonel George Taylor’s psyches.

Designed by Arkham Horror creator Richard Launius, the game will challenge players to work cooperatively to survive foes and deadly environment.

“Richard Lainius has done an incredible job of realising the richness and originality of the Planet of the Apes universe as a cooperative board game experience, perfect for players who love games, or just want a new way to enjoy the films, “ said IDW’s VP of new product development, Jerry Bennington.

The Planet of the Apes board game will launch in October this year.
