I've been hearing some murmurs of an official expansion for LE:Alien and I was wondering how credible these musings are. Does anyone have a link to a newser or announcement from Upper Deck with any information?

Re: Information on Expansion
Please put a "?" at the end of the subject or people are going to expect you have information about the expansion.

It's not a rumor or a murmur. Jason Brenner, Upper Deck's brand manager for Legendary, has confirmed it multiple times, but the most information we have about it comes from Dice Tower Con interview by Tom Vasel at Dice Tower Con 2015. Alien starts being discussed about 18 minutes into the video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5H8lQZxXDTg

Summary:
+ release date: "probably" May 2016
+ about 400 cards
+ more movie-based content
+ some original content (created with Fox's blessing and oversight)
+ "more of everything you'd expect"

I'm a quitter. I come from a long line of quitters. It's amazing I'm here at all.

Until I see an official article or in this case, Upper Deck's officials confirming and talking about it I don't believe jack.

Thank you so much, this is exactly what I needed!

And yet we keep coming back...as I pondered in another thread, I wonder if this is what an abusive relationship is like?

So in other words, you believe it. Jason Brenner, the guy in the video that was shared in the post you quoted, is an Upper Deck official. In fact he is THE GUY that runs the Legendary arm of Upper Deck. He confirmed the expansion.

I think you took my post out of context, I was responding to Darth Ed's comment in way of saying: I only had heard rumors and postings on forums that there was going to be an expansion. I take all that with a grain of salt, ergo why I posted THIS to see if anyone had any hard evidence.

They did, and I was happy.

I wonder if they'll include at least rules for mixing the expansion with predator. Or include the conversion pack stuff in it (or at least the expansion versions).
