This link is to a video from gencon, where the interviewer is talking to a rep from hasbro.

First wave of expansion come out in January, and news should be released at the end of August about that.

Also, he mentions the expansions will not be blind packs ( close to 3/4 through)

I mean, none of us can honestly say we know the answer to this question at this point. It depends on a number of factors, the highest being sales, right? If it sells well, and is considered a success and makes Hasbro money, they'll make expansions. Right now, expansions are planned and in the works. If it doesn't sell well, it will probably be discontinued. Those of us who bought it, let's hope for the best. But either way, if we like the game, let's enjoy what we have!

arrrh For now, as I've said elsewhere, I consider it an add-on for Heroscape, and will Port it into Scape when I get it next week. That way, I can't lose, whatever happens, and Hasbro makes some money off me too--so maybe they'll make those expansions in January!

Still waiting for it in Australia too. I have pre-ordered and am eagerly awaiting arrival.

We have Target stores here but they did not stock it like the U.S. did. cry

It is good to hear that they are going to support the game with expansions....I just wish that they listed a bit of a peek behind the curtain and at least allude to what to expect for expansions.

Well there be terrain, cards, figures...I think being a bit more transparent with the plans would be encouraging to players looking at what they've truly planned for the system.

That being said...January isn't that far away and I can be patient until then.

I sincerely hope Hasbro just releases the expansions without waiting for sales numbers to reach their mark. It WILL reach the mark IF they support it with expansions.

I just picked up a few copies from Walmart in PA and my first play was a fun close game!
It's like Heroscape IGO UGO single army card activation minus order markers plus a small 12-card deck of MTG cards and less terrain that plays in half the time.
