Coriolis: The Great Dark launches you into a desolate part of space – The Lost Horizon. Here, a fledgling human civilization who fled war tries to stake out a new life in a harsh environment. 

You live in the meandering asteroid-metropolis of Ship City and you are employed by the Explorers Guild to undertake dangerous expeditions. In Ship City, you will take on missions and investigations to help your guild and build your crew’s reputation with the other major players of the city – the Navigators, the Machinists, and the Gardeners.

Delving into the ruins on desolated moons or other star systems in search of resources and artifacts will bring out the best of you and your crew. Together, you will need to overcome physical obstacles, face creatures from the Dark and endure the ubiquitous Blight. 


The rules of Coriolis: The Great Dark are based on the latest iteration of acclaimed Year Zero Engine, used in award-winning games such as ALIEN The Roleplaying Game, Blade Runner The Roleplaying Game, Tales From the Loop RPG, and The Walking Dead Universe Roleplaying Game, but specifically tailored for this new game.

Coriolis: The Great Dark is the second edition of Coriolis – The Third Horizon. The rules have been updated and further developed, the setting is new and advances the timeline of the universe.

As part of the release, Free League will create a new free and open license for third party content for Coriolis: The Great Dark, as well as a new open licence for Coriolis - The Third Horizon so that fans of the previous game will be able to create and publish new modules. Using these licenses, all creators will have an irrevocable, worldwide, and royalty-free right to freely create, produce and sell content and expansions for both games and their settings.
