Let him who hath understanding reckon the number of the beast, For it is a human number, Its number is Six hundred and sixty six. And we have just reached it, unlocking for all backers the 6 Envy Abominations, as well as the Kickstarter Exclusive 7 Sins Dice Bag!
We still have one more Stretch Goal to fully unlock Envy!
And to celebrate this day of darkness, nothing more appropriate than to welcome the Apocalypse itself!
This is a very special Optional Buy we are making available now due to sheer backer excitement. This is something we had initially planned as a later release, but since every day there seemed to be about a dozen people demanding to see the four heralds of the apocalypse, we decided to push this forward and offer it to you guys!
The Apocalypse expansion offers players a whole new play mode, only for the very brave (or very crazy), including the huge and frighteningly detailed figures of War, Pestilence, Famine, Death, and Apocalypse itself! Here's all the Apocalypse Box contains:
- 5 Big Figures
- 4 New Tiles
- 1 New Story Board
- 1 New Apocalypse Track Board
- 5 Monster Reference Cards
- 12 new Upgrade Cards
- 1 Rules and Maps Leaflet
Backers can get this Optional Buy for $40, and it will available at retail later on for an estimated MSRP of $50. But those who get this item during the Kickstarter campaign, will also get 2 Kickstarter Exclusive Heroes: Kwanita, the Bruiser, and Benoit, the Sniper!
Apocalypse represents the next stage in the Hell Club's scheme. They have opened the final gate, unleashing Apocalypse and its four Avatars onto our world. Haven will no longer be taken, it will be razed to the ground! Even the Hell Club is not foolish enough to stand where these entities roam, and have abandoned the city. It's FAITH's mission to stand against Apocalypse itself!
Apocalypse introduces its own Story Board, which revolves around the Sins Player attempt to obliterate Haven, employing the Avatars of Apocalypse. This Story Board is not part of any of the 3 story modes (Terror, Corruption, or Redemption), and is played, as usual, with any combination of Sin and Acolytes. There will be 6 different maps for this Story, mixing the 4 new tiles with the tiles from other sets: 2 basic maps using the core box tiles, 2 maps using the tiles from the Gamma and Delta boxes, and 2 maps using the tiles backers have unlocked as KS stretch goals.
This expansion introduces a brand new Apocalypse Track to the game. On this track, instead of drawing new Apocalypse cards as the track advances, new Avatars of the Apocalypse are brought onto the board, eventually culminating with the appearance of Apocalypse itself!
Each of these huge monsters affect the game in a different way:
Death is not only a fearsome opponent in direct combat, but it also sows death wherever it roams. Any Hero caught next to it finds his life slowly draining away. Stay away from this reaper of lives, or you won't last long.
Famine drains the city of its resources, leaving heroes starving for aid. A District visited by Famine loses its ability to lend help to the heroes, who will have to look elsewhere for the resources they need.
War is not only a great warrior itself, but its a great commander for the forces of the apocalypse. Each monster joining it in a fight becomes fiercer and more dangerous. Don't let War amass an army, or you won't stand a chance.
Pestilence turns the city into a veritable pool of decay. Corruption tokens around it become more powerful, leading heroes quickly to their doom.
When Apocalypse shows up, the heroes will be hard pressed to hold their ground. This behemoth is surely a beast in combat, but even more insidiously, it is able to take temporary control of heroes, using them as monsters to attack their teammates!
Here's a scale comparison to give you an idea of how big the figures in this box are. Apocalypse is almost 50% taller than the Avatar of Pride! These amazing sculpts are by Jacques-Alexandre Gillois and Jason Hendricks.
The Apocalypse box contains 4 new City Tiles to set the stage for the final confrontation. These tiles connect the New City with the Old Town, featuring brand new locations. These include an opulent Opera House, a decaying Vehicle Graveyard, a bustling Chinatown market, and a creepy Amusement Park. We should be able to show you the artwork for all these tiles in the coming days.
With all these new terrors around, the heroes will need some extra aid. The Apocalypse box brings 12 more Upgrade cards to shuffle into your inventory deck, adding more firepower and different strategies for the heroes. There are 6 different cards, with 2 copies each, featuring things like a magic blade that becomes more powerful as the Apocalypse Track advances, armor that heals you when you wade into spaces full of fire or corruption, and holy books that reduce the power of Avatars.
As a special treat for those that get the Apocalypse box during the Kickstarter, we are adding two Kickstarter Exclusive heroes. These characters will not be part of the retail version of the Apocalypse box.
Benoit - Sniper
A brilliant mind, paired with a strong body, and amazing marksmanship. Benoit fires his rifle with mathematical accuracy. When he attacks, he may be able to heal wounds or corruption depending on his prediction of the shot's results.
Kwanita - Bruiser
A fierce and proud warrior, Kwanita can hold her own against any opponent. Never one to shy away from a fight, the taste of her own blood only gives her more rage in battle. The more wounds she takes, the more powerful her attacks become!
