Available for Pre-Order. Made the Cut.
Combined Rule Book, Combined Competitive Scenario Book, and Combined Solo/Co-op Scenario Book: Since this is the final expansion, all the rules and scenarios over the four different games will be compiled in one place.
Solo and Co-Op: Refined solo and co-op rules.
A New, Alternate Empire (two copies): Not as different as the Replicators, it has the same economics as a base empire, but some of the ship classes have different stats and abilities. Some of the ship classes are also completely replaced with new classes.
- Allows you to play Space Empires as a 6-player game without Replicators or a 7-player game with them.
- Even in a 2-player game, you can now play it 5 different ways.
- Base Empire vs Base Empire
- Base Empire vs New Empire
- Base Empire vs Replicators
- New Empire vs New Empire
- New Empire vs Replicators
Variable, but balanced home systems: Everyone has the same home system for balance reasons. However, you will never know for sure exactly what will be in your home system from game to game.
Scenario Cards: 30 or so cards, and 1 or 2 could be flipped to change the overall galaxy conditions for the game. A couple of these are from the scenario book, but most are new.
Missions: Missions are Resource Cards that can't just be played but require you to complete something on the map to gain a larger benefit. More work, but more reward.
Deep Space Planetary Attributes: The NPA planets in deep space will now have a bit of personality. Some will be harder or easier to take. Some will really be worth fighting over as they will have different abilities and bonuses.
Crew Cards: Notable crewmen that bring bonuses will be on some of your ships. Sometimes they benefit just one ship, sometimes a group, and sometimes a fleet.
Facilities Game: Two new facilities will be added to complete the facilities game.
Much, Much More: extra cards of every type, Starbases, Defense Satellites, Cyber Armor, New Terrain types, additional terrain to support larger scenarios, a 4" box to give you more storage options, and more!
