Is this the revision of Mordred?

If we can get official confirmation, I can submit a BGG change to have this be shown as a reimplementation of Mordred.

Thanks.

It is, the publisher says so in the German language video posted on the game page.

Hello,

Mordred is indeed the inspiration for Arrival and the game adopts some similar mechanics.

The Arrival, however, offers also a lot of new things and has to be seen as completely new game.

You can call it reimplementation, if you like. Maybe I will ask Martin Wallace for his opinion...

Yeah, from reading the brief description of the game, all I could think was "So this is just Mordred all over again?"

I'm sure there will be some twists to the mechanics, but the overall goal of the game seems to be just a re-theming of the Mordred game.

Hi

I really do not think so; there are common roots- but there is a point when a game becomes a new game, and this point has been reached with The Arrival.
Play it and judge again, if you like.

Best

Ralph
