Heavy Gear Roleplaying

In a joint announcement, Steve Jackson Games and Dream Pod 9 have revealed plans for a roleplaying game based on the latter company’s Heavy Gear property. Heavy Gear is set 4,000 years in the future on the distant planet Terra Nova. Nations descended from the original colonists fight with each other, and with Earth forces trying to retake their colony, using humanoid mechs.

Dream Pod 9 will continue to produce the miniatures line for Heavy Gear Blitz!, while Steve Jackson will release the RPG, at least at the beginning, electronically through e23. In a different move for Steve Jackson, the Heavy Gear roleplaying game will not be a version of GURPS. Instead, the game will be an updated 4th edition of Dream Pod 9’s Silhouette system.
