The Expanse Roleplaying Game is an upcoming Expanse-themed tabletop RPG. It will release in digital format in November 2018, and will be released in physical form in January 2019. The release dates turned out to be way off, as the PDF versions weren't released until around mid-March 2019. According to Dylan Templar on the Kickstarter comments section at the end of April 2019 a shipping issue has delayed the release of the physical versions.
The game was launched as part of a Kickstarter by Green Ronin Publishing. Less than 24 hours later, it had well surpassed its goal of $US30,000, reaching over $US194,000. Built around the Adventure Game Engine rules used by Green Ronin's other tabletop games, the RPG tasks players with putting themselves into the simmering conflict between Earth, Mars and the Belt, taking on a variety of roles, from combat operatives to diplomats and venturing out into the stars.
The Expanse RPG is set between books 1 and 2. As readers may recall, there is an 18 month gap between the the events of Leviathan Wakes and Caliban's War it was decided that'd be the baseline for the RPG. Future books in the game line will cover the events of the later novels.
