Now on Kickstarter: Exodus: Edge of Extinction Expansion

Exodus Edge of Extinction

NSKN Games has announced a long-awaited expansion for their space “4X” board game, Exodus: Proxima Centauri.

Lead one of six unique, fully developed and beautifully illustrated factions with their own histories, strengths, unique special abilities and a set of new, exclusive technologies.

Play as the Sirius Theocracy, cunning and deceptive masters of politics bound together by a mutual belief in a benevolent deity.

Or, you may select the role of the Arctic Dominion, shrewd businessmen who follow the mantra that if there is a price on anything, and if it is the right price, they can deliver.  And there is a price on everything.

Players may also select the role of the Han-Xia Dynasty, masters of adapting to new environments, making them effective at adapting Centurian technology.  Additionally, their cruel but frighteningly effective methods of training pilots makes their space fleets something to be truly feared.

The Titan Diarchy is a faction that allows players to control the true masters of scientific research and technological development.  They believe that it is through the progress of science that humanity will truly learn to live in peace, and they will seek peaceful resolutions to conflict when they can.

The Solaris Confederation is a faction that just wants to be left alone in peace.  They are committed, however, to end any fights others begin with technological surprises and mysterious conflict resolutions.

The Blackwater faction is built around a vast economical power, and is what is left of a secret organization on Earth.  Blackwater seeks to, quite simply, conquer space and become the supreme rulers of humanity.

Exodus: the Edge of Extinction is a an expansion worthy of the base game, introducing asymmetric powers and new game play options to the critically acclaimed Exodus: Proxima Centauri Revised Edition. Bigger fleets, custom action cards, novel technologies and completely new mechanisms like the Combat Cards add a whole new layer to the spectrum of strategies already available in the base game.
