Just released from FFG:

https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/news/2017/1/26/control...

An overview of various game mechanisms, although no new cards revealed (see below for clarification).

So looking forward to this expansion!



This card fan is from promotional material (Spanish text) not yet posted on Four is Flatline and includes Mason Bellamy (looks like Damon Stone?), the program SYN Flooding, an agenda known as Paper Trail and "Hailstorm" ICE.

The marketing and preview describe the use of legacy mechanics (some cards are used, others discarded/destroyed). The PAD function is similar to Pandemic Legacy's character sheets (ethos instead of skills, cautions instead of scars, etc.). I think FFG may be on to something here: providing a tournament-legal pseudo-deluxe expansion that also caters to the casual player. I hope they continue to explore this avenue in the future.

BTW, here's the translation for the card fan (source: Reddit about 6 days ago: https://www.reddit.com/r/Netrunner/comments/5p3j5e/blood_and...).

I'm not terribly impressed myself, but as always YMMV. As more info comes out, if there proves to be some utility to this expansion beyond legacy play, it might pique my interest at some point.

There will be utility as the cards in this expansion are tournament legal!

In fact, it seems as if there will be an almost-full-size deluxe set of tournament legal cards, in addition to the campaign cards.

I'm really hoping that a little judicious photocopying of the player sheets and attention to which cards are in which data pack means that my opponent and I can play through the campaign twice, switching sides for the second run through. There are, I understand, 4 IDs included in the game.

It won't have the surprises in the second round, but could still be fun.

Utility is in the eye of the beholder, I suppose. I've leaned more heavily towards some cycles than others to begin with in my casual play deckbuilding, but my thoughts on Legacy ANR are colored by my experiences with Risk Legacy which I don't particularly care for. Realistically, I'll probably end up purchasing it at some point because reasons. As long as it's available to play online and has such a thriving community behind it, I feel like I should. ;)

New cards have utility outside of this game, unless they've designed 55 cards that have solely legacy effects. I'd find that hard to believe.

Then perhaps a better way to put it would be, if they have utility *in my decks*. Who am I kidding, though? That hasn't stopped me from purchasing data packs before. Not by a longshot.

Heck, I'll admit it. I'm just a little skittish about purchasing a legacy netrunner set with the express intention of not using any of the legacy tropes. There. I said it. These reassurances of tournament legality will probably sway me....but dangit, I'm just skittish. I did not like Risk Legacy one bit, but I understand that's an apples-to-oranges comparison.

I suspect you'll be able to find out, within a week of it hitting stores, what percentage of the cards are tournament legal and which are not.

But either way you should buy them.
