Two New Free League Digital Toolsets Now In Early Access

Demiplane launches first official NEXUS™ digital toolsets for Free League’s ALIEN: The Roleplaying Game and Mutant: Year Zero

GREEN BAY, WI (September 27, 2022) – Today Demiplane celebrates the release of the first two official digital toolsets for award-winning tabletop roleplaying game publisher Free League. As part of a multi-title, multi-year licensing agreement, Demiplane has brought ALIEN: The Roleplaying Game and Mutant: Year Zero to the NEXUS™ family of digital toolsets. 

Players Now Have New Ways to Experience Epic Free League Stories Digitally with Demiplane’s ALIEN: The Roleplaying Game NEXUS™ and Mutant: Year Zero NEXUS™

The ALIEN universe is legendary for it’s gritty embodiment of sci-fi horror, and ALIEN: The Roleplaying Game has brought that tension and terror to the RPG table as only a Free League game can. Fans and critics agree, with Alien: RPG earning the gold Ennie for Best Game in 2020 plus an ongoing list of accolades for its adventures and expansions since then.  

ALIEN: The Roleplaying Game NEXUS™ makes experiencing that legacy more convenient–and more accessible–than ever before. When game systems, gear, and acid-drenched xenomorph crit tables are only a tap or click away, players stay immersed in the suspense of the game even when a question about the rules arises. To learn more, check out for more details. 

Free League’s Mutant: Year Zero is the latest incarnation of a 30-year post-apocalyptic tabletop RPG franchise, with mutant characters scouring the toxic ruins of civilization for the food, water, and weapons needed to survive in a world-turned-wasteland. Demiplane brings the game’s award-winning “Year Zero Engine” to fresh audiences through the Mutant: Year Zero NEXUS™. Whether getting ready for a new game session or checking rules on the fly during a fight with a nest of zone spiders, Demiplane’s digital tools mean less time spent searching for information and more time exploring the decayed remnants of civilization.

“Free League has cemented their place as a top publisher in the tabletop roleplaying space in the past few years, and we are committed to giving their games the top-notch digital support they deserve,” said Adam Bradford, Chief Development Officer at Demiplane, “We can’t wait for fans to get started in Early Access with toolsets for the ALIEN RPG and for Mutant: Year Zero, the game that started it all for the Year Zero Engine.”

“We want to be where our players are, and the launch of the ALIEN RPG and Mutant: Year Zero on Demiplane marks an important step in our strategy for the digital space of TTRPG gaming,” said Tomas Härenstam, Co-founder and CEO of Free League Publishing. “But it's only the beginning - we look forward to seeing many more of our RPGs on the Demiplane platform in the months and years to come.”

With both NEXUSes in Early Access, players can learn (or teach) the games quickly through exploration and play. The Digital Reader and Compendium tools speed up game prep and help players stay focused on the game with fast, easy content and rules lookup. Both ALIEN: The Roleplaying Game NEXUS™ and Mutant: Year Zero NEXUS™ are designed to enhance play whether it's in person with friends around a game table or virtually online.

Besides discovering and playing great games, Early Access players shape the future of the digital tools with their feedback. They also become the first to experience new features and content as they are added. For example, both ALIEN: The Roleplaying Game NEXUS™ and Mutant: Year Zero NEXUS™ will add character tools in 2023, empowering players to create and manage rich, game-ready characters in a fraction of the time.

As we look to 2023, Free League NEXUSes will grow even further on Demiplane, with plans for additional digital toolsets supporting games like Vaesen, Coriolis, Forbidden Lands, and more.
