So I demoed Crossfire non-stop this week at Origins (Literally, I rarely had more than 5 minutes between demos, and usually had no time between, all weekend, and I ran non-stop from the time the hall opened till it closed all four days. Fantastic interest in the game still.) And I was given a few tidbits of info to share with folks I demoed for, and that I can now share here:
First off, we're hoping to have the game at Gen Con. Of course, that is barring printers exploding, delivery and transportation malfunctions and strikes, etc. So it's not a "We WILL HAVE THIS
at Gen Con!" but a "Should the stars all align and favor us, we hope
to have it at the con." So no one is allowed to get upset or lynch me if it's not there.
Anyway, there are two new roles. From what I was told, these are a hybrid role utilizing the existing role colors. I may have the names slightly wrong, but I believe the roles are a Social Adept and a Combat Rigger. So a Red/Blue hybrid and a Green/Black Hybrid. The exact makeup of the starting deck, I don't know, but that's how they were explained to me.
Beyond that, there are supposed to be new cards all around: New crossfire events, new obstacles, new Scenarios, and new Black Market cards.
So it should be a really nice expansion.
