RELEASING: JULY 6th, 2016
Upper Deck haven't released any info on this yet themselves. This expansion was mentioned early 2015 at Origins and then not much else. It is through Cool Stuff Inc that we get details as a pre-order page was recently posted.
From the small blurb on the page we can get excited for 400 new cards with all new artwork.
Within this decent sized expansion we will find four new character decks, one for each movie: Kane (Alien), Lt Gorman (Aliens), Superintendent Andrews (Alien 3) and Cpt Elgyn (Alien: Resurrection).
Even more exciting is the promise of a brand new player mat that will allow the players to become the ALIEN Queen. Surely this will feature one versus all type rules but that remains to been seen when more details surface.
The original release is one of the most thematic games I have ever played and being that it is just made up of cards that is high praise. You can play through each movie in the series with every card turn having the tension which is present on the big screen. I can't wait to see how this expansion can deepen that experience.
I give this an aniticipation rating of five "You always were an asshole Gorman"s out of five ;)
