I wonder if this is going to be based on KS content or something new - looks like the latter...

Woah. Yes, this is new. Unless it repackages KS content.

I'm not a fan of most of the add-on content from the KS, so hopefully this batch of content is better developed than things like the Sewers and those awful combat maps.

Aren't they still having loads of trouble getting the components for the FIRST game to the people who kickstarted it?

I can agree to that, I just received my package this morning. What a ridiculous affair this has been. I still have to try this all out now ! So I can't say much about an upcomming expansion... laugh

That's mental - my mate bought me the retail version for Christmas. It's crazy that I've had my copy longer than you, who kickstarted it!!

At last!

(still waiting for my painted minis though)


Two concerns about the expansion:

1) I'm ok if it's new content and I'm ok if it's old content. I just hope it's not a mix of both.

2) If there are new minis, it would be a problem to have them painted the same way the old ones were. In that case, and combined to the huge shipping delays I had to endure, it seems that there was not a single day this game wasn't a frustration of some kind. Always something missing at some point.

Yeah ! And they only started to answer me when I had one of the designers in the loop... But of course, it was way to late by then. I sent them a fiery mail, but I imagine they won't read it robot

I don't mind the delay, I had taken all the stretch goals, all the add-ons... It's not much the delay that bothers me, it's the total lack of customer service from AR.

The blurb makes me feel it is the KS add ons

"New faces can be seen around the city – the friendly ones at the makeshift market or in neighboring houses, the hostile ones in the night, with blinding flashlights and clubs and knives."

Sounds like the tactics expansion for hostile and maybe Farmers/Orphans for freindly

and then

"We seek new paths to travel through the ruins – sometimes even underground – just to avoid sniper fire and loot anything of value. It’s never much."

sounds very much like the Sewers Expansion

Except they said on Facebook that "This expansion will make both KS pledgers and new gamers happy".

Which basically seems to mean that KS pledgers won't as this expansion would be a mix of both old and new material.

"Not 100% new stuff, but not 100% KS either"

I don't think there will be many KS backers happy if new content requires buying content they already have.

At the very least, that would make some material to trade for other things... But yeah, it's not really good news.

Maybe but it is good news for retail version owners, like me. As far as I know, KS addons are quite critisized, so my guess is that they decided not to release them for retail but to make something better.. I hope.. cool

hopefully it is all new content. It would make little sense to me to keep this suspense if they are just printing a compendium of the KS expansions...

How so? It would be far better for all if they'd to a KS expansions only expansion and a second one with totally new stuff.
