I could be missing something, but this doesn't seem to be very different than the mission in the demo kit.

In this mission, obstacles are assigned first to an appropriate role, then clockwise.

Also, if not playing w four players, there are fewer initial crossfire cards, which can make the run a whole lot easier.

Next, after Catch your Breath, there are more hard obstacles, based on the number of crossfire cards in play. So if you do well in the first round on two or three players, you might not get any hard obstacles, or only one.

It's not very different, but it is different. In the first phase you're guaranteed to get one obstacle paired to the best role to defeat it. And in the second phase, instead of knowing that the hard obstacles are at 2 and 4, they could be more plentiful and start at position 1. If you took a long time to do phase one, then you'll end up with more hard obstacles.

This one actually sounds harder to me, but it's listed as Entry as opposed to moderate, so I dunno.

I think it's amusing and encouraging that new missions are coming out before the bloody game has even been released. I take that as a good sign.

On second thought, the demo kit isn't exactly full of deep variety. It makes sense to release a second mission that is still supported by the small demo kit assortment.

I'm hoping for a few missions that really highlight specific roles. For example, the players fight through some non-green obstacles, then the decker gets a spotlight encounter while the others support him.
