This is an interesting bit of news.

I take it this is from FFG themselves?

For ages now I have been wanting to get into this game but have held back as I would have no way to rustle up a face-to-face opponent(s).

Hopefully. more details re: this announcement will be forthcoming.

Agreed It was quite in the air tho: considering the success of Road to Legend, able to give new life to Descent 2nd (forums bursted in new activity after the release), they couldn't do the same for IA

It's an interesting moment in boardgame history: apps are a thing.

BTW, Are all of these games still playable without the app? Will the upcoming DOOM have an app as well?

Ooh! Tons of cool stuff for IA! It's all going to be good--especially with the app!

Julia (or anyone)--is there a live stream of the InFlight report happening anywhere? Too bad if not--they've got the Twitch channel and all, sitting unused right now...

Hugely excited for this!

And I believe that it was explicitly stated that Doom will not have an app, at least at launch. The fact that Descent sales tripled when the app came out though, that may make them pivot.

They sure are. Apps for IA and Descent are just something extra, allowing for a different experience, but games are still 100% playable without the app.

The only two FFG games you can't play without the app are XCom and Mansions of Madness 2nd edition

The complete stream of news is on Twitter (link)

Zach from TeamCovenant was there, so, if they do what they did last year, there should be a videostream on their channel in a few hours

Is this a fact or conjecture? I really hope this is true as Descent looked to be on its last legs, in terms of content release.

I assume no ETA was mentioned? I can't imagine it being too much work as the game is very similar to Descent

Only the "working on it" and "next year" were mentioned. I wouldn't hold my breath, just keep breathing normally and often.

Imperial Assault is not that similar to Descent. The campaign structure is different, the activations alternate, the actions and abilities are different. They have a tile system in common.

It was on one of their slides in the GenCon presentation.

The activations also alternate in Descent's Road to Legend. They changed it for the app compared to the board game.
