New NorTec Cards Previewed For XenoShyft

Well, the other day we got a look at some of the upcoming cards for The Hive in the new XenoShyft expansion, Dreadmire, which is coming to Kickstarter in January. Of course, if there’s going to be some new Brood cards, there should be some new NorTec cards to fight against them. It wouldn’t be much of a game if there were just aliens to wreck your base and no way to defend it.

This preview we get a look at two troop types: Demolitionist and Ranger. But just the troopers alone won’t be able to stem the advance of the Hive. As such, they’re giving you a look at two upgrade cards in the form of Tesla Volt Gauntlet and Ares Chem-Injection. Stay tuned for more previews as we get closer to the Kickstarter launch.

    My advise, if you haven’t played Xenoshyft and want to back this KS, buy it and play it first on your smartphone/tablet:

    For €2 you’ll get to know the game and in my case, I didn’t like it. Saves you a lot of money.

      Good Advice – I did the opposite (played the App, bought the game) and couldn’t be happier. The game is BRUTAL, perhaps even moreso in the physical version.

      • Yeah, like I mentioned in the preview the other day, I can always tell when they’re working on new cards, because the evil cackling can be heard all the way down the hall.
