I received my pledge a few weeks ago but had only opened the base game. I set aside all the extra goodies, which included all the boxes I expected to receive. I got around to opening my Apocalypse box which was supposed to include a couple of extra Kickstarter exclusive heroes and did not see them. Did everyone else get their KS exclusives for the Apocalypse expansion? If so, where were the characters packaged?
Just in case their CS staff ask, the extra heroes are Benoit and Kwanita.
These two heroes can be used in the regular game, not just the apocalypse mission, correct?
Also, what about the upgrade cards that come in the box, can those also be used in regular games?
yes and yes
Although the upgrade cards are more powerful than the normal ones and could impact the balance of the game, so if you generally find it's too hard for FAITH to win, that could be a way to mitigate that. Otherwise I wouldn't add them to non-apocalypse scenarios.
