Game of Thrones: The Card Game second edition debuted with much excitement at Gen Con in August and Fantasy Flight Games is building on that excitement with the first deluxe expansion: Wolves of the North.  From the announcement:

In this expansion, House Stark takes the spotlight as they gain new cards to guide your Stark decks in new and unexpected directions. You may use Direwolves to cow and overpower your foes, rush to victory with the aid of House Tully, or draw strength from the Winter itself. Throughout the box, you’ll find new versions of iconic characters like Eddard Stark, Catelyn Stark, Jon Snow, and Arya Stark, alongside characters entering the game for the first time, including The Blackfish, Shaggydog, and Rickon Stark.

Not to be outdone by the Starks, each other faction in the game will also see new cards, as well as the addition of six new neutral plots to be used in any deck.  Some of these plots will feature a new keyword: Winter.  Many of the new cards interact with these plots allowing players to use the cold of the north to their advantage, chilling enemies in their tracks!  Keep an eye out for Wolves of the North in the second quarter of 2016.
