Fantasy Flight Games have given us the details on a whole new cycle of cards coming to Android: Netrunner starting with Kala Ghoda which explores the Indian Union in the Mumbad Cycle. Will you travel to this new city in search of your next Corporate takedown?
A Land Of Possibilities
The new cards focus on growing another location in the world of Netrunner. While a lot of the action happens in a world of data and code there is still a physical world that feeds all this. With this in mind the new cards not only try to build a sense of place but also give you some interesting new options.
Some of the new cards in this set bring in mechanics not seen before. The first of these is Alliance cards which give you benefits based on what other cards are included in your deck. On the other hand you also have new Consumer-Grade cards which reflect easy to grab Cybernetics. These break the general ‘rule of three’ for cards in your deck and come with some benefits for doing so. BUT, they do obviously limit you too.
The story behind this new set is quite interesting and the cycle will explore Jinteki (one of the Corporations) trying to make sure that their Clones stay as products and don’t become anything more than that. It will be fun to see where this goes!
Will you be grabbing this?
