Fantasy Flight Games have announced that the Data Pack, Down the White Nile, for the Android: Netrunner the Living Card Game is now available.

On the shores of Lake Victoria sits the city of Jinja, a population hub poised to explode with economic activity.

What threads of truth can be found down the White Nile.[source]

This is the second data pack in the Kitara Cycle. It includes a new Shaper identity, viruses to spread chaos, and new tools for the corporation to use against the runner. Android: Netrunner is a tactical, asymmetrical, two-player card game in which one player is a futuristic hacker (called a runner) who launches attacks on a mega-corporation controlled by the other player. In order to fully utilize this Data Pack you will need to own a copy of the core set as well as the first Data Pack in the cycle, Sovereign Sight. Further details can be found on the Fantasy Flight Games website.

Arkham Horror: The Card Game will also be getting a Deluxe Expansion to kick off the next cycle of game packs. The Forgotten Age Deluxe Expansion sees 1-4 players head into the jungles of Southern Mexico with five new investigators to tackle two new scenarios. We think we know the history of the Earth, but there are secrets that lie beyond our reckoning and truths that could undo our entire understanding of the universe. When renowned historian Alejandro Vela discovers one of these secrets, the ruins of an ancient and forgotten Aztec city, it sets into motion a plot that could unravel the very fabric of time. [source] In the first scenario, the team of investigators will search for a forgotten Aztec city-state in the jungles of Southern Mexico. A new "Explore" action has been added which players can initiate with an "activate" action and has players draw from a new, separate, exploration deck. The change in locale is dramatically different from previous cycles. A copy of the core set is required in order to play this expansion. A preview of the new investigator, Ursula Downs, and more details regarding the game's contents can be found on the Fantasy Flight Games website.
