As an original backer what does this new one really mean. Is it a totally new game or new fractions, and what about the exclusives? How much. And when do you expected to launch?

Reprint of the original base game and expansions for those who don't already have them. New expansions for those who do. September most likely.

ETA: As per PG's philosohpy, no gameplay exclusives. As of now, It seems there will be new (different) special dice and a new first player marker.

The new Kickstarter will include new expansion content (new GOOs, new boards, etc). It will also enable people who missed the first Kickstarter to order package deals of the game and expansions (or just expansions). From a funding standpoint, it will help Petersen Games produce enough expansions to put some to market.

Currently, they can only produce enough for the first KS backers which means people who missed it were left without the option to get the various expansions. This Kickstarter will address that need while also providing some new content (even for those who went all in on the first campaign).

Sounds so non-Euclidean.

Q) As an original backer what does this new one really mean?
Sandy - we are announcing 5 new expansions and a new first player marker for Cthulhu Wars. In addition, we are giving people who do not yet own the other expansions a chance to get them. Finally, there are stretch goals, all but one of which add more free stuff should they be reached (the exception is a new faction).

Q) Is it a totally new game or new fractions, and what about the exclusives?
Sandy - it is all the old stuff, plus the 5 new expansions and new first player marker, and the stretch goals which unlock, if any. None of the exclusives from the first kickstarter are available. Also, none of the new items in this kickstarter are exclusives.

Q) How much?
Sandy - TBA, but we are trying to make it attractive to people.

Q)And when do you expect to launch?
Sandy - probably in late August or early September. It is dependent on getting the prototype figures finished and in our hands.
