FFG Announces New Content for MoM 2ed and Star Wars: Destiny

June 24, 2017 - 5:50pm
Streets of Arkham expansion for Mansions of Madness: Second Edition and Empire at War set of booster packs for Star Wars: Destiny were recently announced by Fantasy Flight Games. In Q4 of 2017, you will be able to enlarge your MoM 2ed collection with a Streets of Arkham expansion that brings a even more to the table than the previous one, Beyond the Threshold. It will shift the focus into the streets as four new investigators that you may know from the other Arkham Horror Files games join your crew to help you find out what lies beneath the disturbances in Miskatonic Museum, Miskatonic University, and in the streets of Arkham themselves - the locations of the three new digital scenarios. Apart from new tiles, mythos events, monster types, and cards, the expansion also includes a possibility to upgrade investigators' skills (each skill once) using Improvement tokens by, for example, drinking one of the Elixirs, a new item type that will appear in the game. However, you can never know what might happen after devouring such a potent chemical compound - at least not until you flip the Elixir card over and read the full effects that it has. Finally, another challenge to be solved awaits in the form of a tower puzzle (similar to Tower of Hanoi) that will be added to the companion app. A little earlier, however, in the third quarter of 2017, Star War Rebels series along with the crew of the the Ghost will appear in Star Wars: Destiny as a part of the third set of booster packs for the game, Empire at War.

Empire at War emulates the chaos found in the Star Wars galaxy during its darkest times with themes that disrupt your opponent’s board and decimate their best laid plans. These 160 brand-new cards will focus on taking core concepts of Star Wars: Destiny and throwing them into disarray.

You can look forward to characters such as the master strategist Thrawn, Mace Windu, or Ezra Bridger joining the forces of their respective factions.
