A New Wave of Heroes and Warriors Join the “Battle of All Time” in Milton Bradley’s Heroscape’s

EAST LONGMEADOW, Mass. (July 13, 2005) - Past, present and future heroes from different historical and mythical backgrounds are introduced this summer in seven new expansion sets for Milton Bradley's HEROSCAPE game. The expansion sets feature a new cast of victorious warriors such as the savage Marro Drones and the honorable Knights of Weston. And for the first time, expansion sets allow players to further customize their battlefield with new terrain sets that feature lava pieces for the ultimate addition to their HEROSCAPE Master Set.

"We continue to enhance the HEROSCAPE experience with new game play options and an ongoing storyline that puts players in the midst of epic battles as they unfold," said John Santanella, director of marketing for Hasbro Games.
"The new expansion sets, together with the game's rich Web site featuring an online comic book, a short animated film and other exclusive content, creates an incredibly immersive world for HEROSCAPE fans."

In the HEROSCAPE game, players strategically pit heroes throughout history against one another to determine the ultimate warrior. The game comes alive as players choose a battlefield set-up from the game or create their own customized field. The warrior grudge matches unfold across a self-constructed, three-dimensional game board battlefield in the mythical land of Valhalla.
