Fantasy Flight Games Announces New Edition of Mission: Planet Red

Fantasy Flight Games has announced that they'll be making a new edition of Mission: Planet Red. This steampunk board game has players play as explorers/entrepreneurs just making their way to Mars. They're looking to control as much of the planet and its bounty of natural resources as possible. This new edition will keep the basics from the old game, but incorporate certain game element updates that've been made by Bruno Faidutti and Bruno Cathala, the game's original creators. They're also updating the board and artwork for a more contemporary look.

From the announcement:

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce a new edition of Mission: Red Planet, the steampunk-themed board game of planetary exploration designed by Bruno Faidutti and Bruno Cathala.

In Mission: Red Planet, two to six players compete to control as much of Mars and its priceless natural resources as they possibly can. This edition maintains the core mechanics of this fast-paced game while incorporating updates by the original designers. Astronauts can land in a new zone, the moon Phobos, and the Soldier can convey astronauts from Phobos to anywhere on Mars. Missions and Discoveries have been fine-tuned, and new Action Cards join the Event deck. The game can now handle six players, with rules for a two-player variant also included. What's more, the Victorian steampunk aesthetic has been refreshed with all-new graphic design for a more contemporary look.
