Red Unit Studios’ tactical board game Warbands: Bushido has arrived on Android. Originally released on PC and iOS in September 2017, the game has players take turns moving their 16th century Japan inspired miniature figures on the battlefield’s hexagonal tiles as they attempt to take down their opponents.
Players will need to rely on a mixture of tactics and luck as they go through the game’s multiplayer and single player portions. While superior tactics will give players an advantage thanks to features like cover bonuses, the game’s dice rolls add an element of chance to each encounter. There’s a variety of different miniatures to unlock, and new scenarios to unlock and play through.
Although not labeled as such on Google Play, the Android version of the game is currently in beta. Players are shown a prompt that encourages them to report any bugs with the Android version of the game after they first launch the game. So players should not be surprised if the game has a few issues that need to be worked out.
Unlike the iOS and Steam version of the game, the Android version of Warbands: Bushido is free to play and contains in app purchases. Here is an excerpt from the game’s description and an early trailer with more information:
