Modiphius Entertainment has officially brought the dystopian future of Judge Dredd to the roleplaying table with Judge Dredd and the Worlds of 2000AD RPG. The RPG publisher announced on Thursday that the Judge Dredd Core Book and the expansion book Judge Dredd Robot Wars are now available for purchase in digital form.

The physical copies of both books are currently scheduled to begin shipping in late May. However, fans who order a print book now will receive a PDF copy immediately. And those who order a PDF copy will receive a discount code will offset the cost against any future purchase of a print product.

Both books are now available as part of the Judge Dredd Collection, which you can get on Modiphius.net here. The game is set in the comic book franchise created by John Wagner, Carlos Ezquerra, and Pat Mills. The franchise has been adapted to film twice as well as video games, board games, novels, and a couple of previous roleplaying games before this one.

The books are described as follows:
