Warring Colonies, the new expansion coming out for Dead of Winter, gives players the chance to team up against one-another and fight over the meager resources to be found. But what happens when there’s an odd number of players? That’s where the Lone Wolf variant comes in. It’s rules for a single player that is independent from the other two factions. We get a look at how that works in this preview.

From the preview:

Frantically you turn the corner and lunge at the door. Locked. Hope escapes you in a sob as you fall to the ground, eyes clenched shut. You know what comes next… Nothing? After a few moments you open your eyes to the sight of a lone figure, surrounded by headless corpses, wiping down a blade and heading your way…

Dead of Winter: Warring Colonies provides new ways to play and expand upon Dead of Winter and Dead of Winter: The Long Night. Last week we looked at the latest characters and items, and before that we examined the gameplay features and accompanying objectives of the Warring Colonies variant for 4-11 players. Today we will be previewing one final aspect of Warring Colonies: the Lone Wolf.

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    I think the addition of a Magnakai to the series is an interesting direction to take, though it might turn off long-time players.

      Is there any word on whether or not rules for the Sommerswerd will be included?
