Embracing the Legacy effect in games Terminal Directive is a campaign based expansion for Android: Netrunner where you are hunting a killer after a grisly murder. But, what lies at the root of all of this?
The game, from Fantasy Flight, will come with four new identities for you to play and a whole bunch of new cards which will be tournament legal for you to use beyond the game. However, the real spice comes in how the story is going to unfold.
“In Terminal Directive, there is a killer on the loose. How far will you go to control the truth of the grisly murders you’re investigating? WHO WILL YOU PUT AT RISK to expose or cover up any potential corporate involvement? Where will you draw the line? Most importantly, who is this brutal murderer? Could it be someone you know? Could it be… you?”
You will be trying to fulfil objectives as you play your games which might turn Netrunner on its head and have you doing things you might not normally attempt. Cards and indeed people may be sacrificed on the way, you might run into dangerous foes (both in reality and in cyberspace) or maybe you’ll get out the other side.
This sounds like a fascinating project from Fantasy Flight Games and exactly what Netrunner needed. This Legacy format should serve as a nice story to play out with friends where you’ll be turning to other people and wondering just how they approached x or y.
Will you be giving this one a go?
