You'll discover how the original story developed, the backstory around some of the major events in the Infinity universe, secrets that have only been guessed at, and much more through the growing range of Infinity roleplaying books. We'll be digging deeper to let you adventure through the worlds of each faction, and plan for our roleplaying campaigns to include suggested skirmish games to play out as well.
The roleplaying game will focus on interesting characters and organisations that will let you explore the Infinity universe from a different perspective. There is one organisation in particular with a dangerous agenda, that will lead you on an epic adventure through the key events of the Infinity story!

How Can I Get The Infinity RPG?
Infinity, The Roleplaying Game: Adventures in the Human Sphere and Beyond will then be available in retail from April 2016 through our usual distributors as a full colour hardcover, with an estimated retail price of £39.99-£44.99 depending on final page count.
We are developing Infinity, the roleplaying game for the 2d20 system which is the Modiphius house system, designed by Jay Little (Star Wars Edge of the Empire, The X-Wing Miniatures Game). It's a very cinematic roleplaying system that bears similarities to the Infinity miniatures game such as using multiple d20's to roll under a target number. There will be other familiar features within the roleplaying game for existing Infinity players. 2d20 is also being used in the Mutant Chronicles RPG, Conan, and the John Carter Warlord of Mars RPG from Modiphius and partners through the next year so you can expect lots of support!
The 2d20 system is a dynamic, narrative system, designed to produce varied and interesting results from dramatic and action-packed situations. Characters roll two d20s, attempting to roll as low as possible on each one – the more dice that roll low, the more successes the character scores.
Tasks will require one or more successes to be successful, and any successes scored beyond that minimum become Momentum, which can be spent to achieve a variety of advantageous effects. However, this can come at a cost: characters who wish to succeed can push their luck, rolling extra d20s to boost their chances of success and the Momentum they generate. However, each extra d20 comes from the character’s resources – such as ammunition – or adds to a pool of Heat that represents all the things that can go wrong in a mission, which the GM can spend to complicate adventures and scenarios and make the characters’ lives interesting.

Official INFINITY Tabletop Roleplaying Game Coming!
London-based Modiphius Entertainment has announced a licensing deal with Corvus Belli to create a line of roleplaying games based on INFINITY, their top-selling miniatures skirmish game.
Infinity was launched by Spanish company, Corvus Belli in 2005. It actually started life as a homemade RPG setting for the early roleplaying adventures of Alberto, Carlos, Fernando and Gutier, before it evolved into the hugely-popular wargame and miniatures range.
The team’s original RPG sessions featured the ever-controlling AI ALEPH, the Ariadnan isolated colonists, the fearsome Hassassin and the tricky Tohaa, and later grew into their gaming universe. A never-released comic project provided the first concept design, which inspired them to create Infinity the game.
The team have since released an incredibly wide catalogue of miniatures based on their far-future world. Recent favourite additions include the Dire Foes sets, which pit villains and heroes against each other within story-orientated missions, and the successful launch of Corvus Belli’s Infinity Battle Pack, which provides a great introduction to the massive Infinity skirmish game.
The Infinity storyline follows the battles of the Human Sphere against the alien Combined Army, a collection of conquered alien races led by an aggressively resourceful AI. A recent encounter with the enigmatic Tohaa, who want to ally with the Human Sphere against the common enemy, sets the stage for a vast story of conspiracy, war and adventure.
Now, the gaming world is poised to discover the truth behind Infinity. The newly-announced roleplaying game will give players the freedom to adventure in the Human Sphere and beyond, learning a myriad of never-seen-before secrets about the Infinity universe and its strange alien races.
Modiphius teamed up with Corvus Bellis to unite their roleplaying publishing expertise with the fantastic Infinity setting.
“As Infinity was created by roleplayers, our secret desire has been always to release the RPG version of the game. Unfortunately, Infinity requires all our time and we were unable to create the RPG everyone has been asking for. To find the right partner, with the same attention to detail has been really difficult and the reason we have not released an RPG before. So, when Chris contacted us we felt very happy, as he demonstrated a deep understanding of the universe and spirit of Infinity. We discussed plenty of covert operations, secret schemes and adventures and we know Modiphius has a very professional approach that will ensure they deliver a truly high-quality product. Now we only regret not having teamed up with them before!” said Gutier, background developer of Infinity.
Modiphius have announced that the Infinity roleplaying game will use 2d20, the in-house roleplaying system designed by Jay Little (Star Wars: Edge of the Empire, X-Wing Miniatures Game) for Mutant Chronicles, which encourages cinematic action with its simple mechanics. New rules will introduce hacking, starships, playing characters who are fragments of an AI and much more. The core of the system is a ‘2d20’ roll versus a character’s Attribute and Skill total allowing for multiple successes, and Infinity fans will recognise many other familiar elements which will help translate the tabletop action into the roleplaying world.
Modiphius was founded in 2012 by Chris Birch, and launched the hugely successful Achtung! Cthulhu roleplaying line in 2013, followed by the re-boot of the Mutant Chronicles RPG in Spring 2014. Having recently announced the Thunderbirds co-operative board game by Matt Leacock (Pandemic, Forbidden Island, Forbidden Desert, Roll Through The Ages), and the Mutant: Year Zero translation, Modiphius has established itself as a growing force in the tabletop industry.
“When I first saw the Infinity miniatures I couldn’t believe there wasn’t a roleplaying game, “commented Chris Birch, founder and publishing director of Modiphius. “The beautiful figures just screamed out to be player characters, with the finely-tuned action poses that Corvus Belli have become well known for.”
Infinity - The Roleplaying Game. Adventures In the Human Sphere & Beyond will be available through a Kickstarter campaign in September 2015, with plans to expand the range to include full-colour campaign books, setting books, new player-character and villain figures, floor tiles and much more.
There will also be some PDF mini-adventures, which follow in the footsteps of Corvus Belli’s design team’s own early games. The very escapades that spawned the Infinity miniatures game!
