XenoShyft: Dreadmire Kickstarter Launching January 12th

Posted by CMON (Creator)

The Launch Date has been announced! XenoShyft: Dreadmire will go live next week, dear backers!

XenoShyft: Dreadmire brings players back into the NorTec Corporation as they strip mine another planet for the highly sought-after Xenosathem! Players will have to make strategic decisions and work together as they face off against the Brood, a monstrous horde of all new alien foes! But it isn't just the Brood that players will have to worry about this time. Weather effects will drastically change the game each round!  

XenoShyft: Dreadmire is a fully cooperative card game designed for 1-4 players. Working as both a standalone game and an expansion, XenoShyft: Dreadmire can either be played by itself or shuffled into XenoShyft: Onslaught, adding new foes, items and troops. With over 400 cards, and the same immersive art direction as the previous game, XenoShyft: Dreadmire brings the same quantity and quality players have come to expect from the XenoShyft franchise!

Don't miss out, dear backers! Sign up and continue the fight January 12th, 3PM EST!
