As the description says: It's something that makes it possible to mix LE: Aliens and LE: Predator properly. Now, if they are going to do even more of those once LE: Firefly is out... can get complicated the more of them they release...

There's already a Firefly/Alien conversion kit, it's called the Alien: Resurrection scenario.

This is not new, the 2016 date is erroneous, it was available in 2015. It is simply a rewriting of the objective cards that are in the base game in order to play as Predators hunting Aliens/People as trophies. It is however not required as the Predator rules give you the conversion text in the back of the rule book.

The cards that are included:

Er... in the LE: Alien box. It was a joke - Alien: Resurrection and Failfly were both written by Joss Whedon, and both revolve around a motley crew of space mercenaries including a captain guilty of attempted cool, his girlfriend, a tough guy whose name begins with J, a prickly engineer and a weird chick with a secret.

I hadn't realized all of those similarities ;-)
I figured it was a joke, but just in case... ;-)

A shame they didn't include a bunch of predaliens and predalien-chestbursters. Huge missed opportunity imho.

Description of LE:A Kit
These 16 cards aren't required to combine the games together, as the Predator rulebook contains all of the text changes you need. They just make the integration easier since you don't have to refer back to the manual.

The 16 cards are replacement cards for the Original Legendary Encounters: An Alien Deck Building Game.

4 Location Cards
12 Objective Cards

They are all the same cards from LE:A, basically the same with minor additions. The locations and objectives now make references to Predators, Honor, Trophy Room, etc.
