Fantasy Flight has announced the first cycle of expansion packs for their new Living Card Game – Netrunner. It will be called the Genesis Cycle of Data Packs and will come in the familiar format of 6 30-card packs.
From the publisher:
Android: Netrunner will grow organically through the introduction of monthly Data Packs, each of which introduces sixty new cards (three copies each of twenty individual cards) that intensify the game’s cyberstruggles and permits players to adopt new strategies or reinforce existing ones. The upcoming Data Packs from Genesis build upon the strength’s of the game’s Core Set and expand players’ deck-building options with thematic and imaginative new ice, icebreakers, and faction identity cards.
As with all the Living Card Games, we are offering our Subscription Program. When you subscribe to a game, we automatically order every expansion, hold it for you and give you 10% off the retail price. There’s no prepayment and no commitment. You can drop out of the program anytime you like.
From the designer, Lukas Litzsinger:
The Core Set introduced the thematic concepts of identity cards and faction-specific agendas, but Genesis expands upon these and gives players greater freedom to choose the themes that best fit them. In Genesis, each faction will receive a new identity card. These new identity cards will offer players tough choices between their unique abilities, and the selection of one identity over another can change the tempo of the game. Also in Genesis, each Corp will get new agendas to advance. These will provide players with extra surprises and more control over the composition of their decks.
