Looks like they're going full post-apocolyptic for season 2.

The Season One art didn't have much to do with the game. Given the risk of spoilers, how could it?

I don't imagine the Season Two artwork is giving any more away.

Question for the future:
Can I play Season 2 without playing Season 1?

Most important question - does either box have any fake chemistry?

Nothing visible! Crisis averted on that one.

I think you may need 2 more boxes for that ...

I am definitely getting an environmental theme from the boxes (Scorching suns and frozen winters)

No. Season one is the top of the clock, and these are the bottom, but the very sides won't be completed.

I haven't got to play Season 1 yet, but in the event I do get to it *CAN* season 1 be used as a seed for season 2?

I realize that it not *required*, but rather is it supported to carry somethings over?

Perhaps that's a silly question without context of the end of season 1?

Thanks.

It's not impossible that some aspects of the setup for S2 could be based on the end state for S1, but the (at least) sixty-something year gap means none of the characters would still be active, and the world map appears to be significantly changed too, so there's not exactly much scope for direct carry-over.

On the design side, I'm pretty sure that a carry-over from S1 to S2 would be a "nice-to-have" bonus that would only be added if a good opportunity came up, rather than being an essential feature of the game, so there's a reasonable chance that there is no carry-over.

Sixty year gap? This is the first I've heard of that. And where has the world map been shown?

It looks as if that image has been removed.

Gosh - so it does.

I hope those of us who saw it haven't been too badly spoilered!

On the plus side, we have eight months to forget. On the minus side, we have eight months to wait until release date...

Yes, it seems like the picture has been pulled from the database - perhaps the prototype wasn't meant to be shown just yet...

I'm surprised no one's mentioned the picture sheet in front of the boxes yet. Looks like a collection of character images, so you can pick your character's picture when you create a character. And maybe those are character abilities on the rest of the sheet. Is it possible characters in season 2 are completely custom baked by choosing a set of abilities like character upgrades in season 1?
