You should think twice before asking "A coop mode".

When a game did not think about a coop mode before, it's really hard gameplay wise to get a GOOD co-op variant.
If we end up with a simili-coop with an AI deck, it will be a waste of time. Not replayable enough. And underwhelming.

And there are a lot of versus games that did try to add "a coop variant". Sometimes it's fun. Once or twice. It's never the best way to play the game.

New mechanics, either team battles, new pantheons, new victory conditions, others heroes, are all fine, as long as you keep in mind that changeing the WHOLE ruleset for a variant is not a good idea.

tl;dr: If you want a good coop mode, just buy a game that's made for co-op at the beginning. Coop variants are a lot of work compared to the usually not that great result.

Yeah it drives me nuts when people complain a game isn't coop or solo.

I don't think it will be a co-op mode. I also agree that co-op would be a terrible idea. The game isn't built for it.

Bummer, I was hoping for a deluxe box to hold everything. I doubt I'll ever touch a coop mode. But maybe it'll surprise me.

2) Kronos rebellion (1 vs Many mode)

3) Atlas overload (dexterity/stacking game end-timer?)

How could you be disappointed? They've offered 3 cool options. We've unlocked a full free expansion. And the other one isn't gonna cost much.

Perhaps that depends on how many more add-ons they come out with?
