Let’s make this game harder!
Jonathan Gilmour, co-designer of Dead of Winter, brought the expansion by and Dauch was dodgy in providing any concrete details. We learned a few things.
As expected, the upcoming expansion includes new survivors, new Crossroads cards, and new items. No shockers there. But it will also include a new, unspecified game mechanic that will inherently make Dead of Winter even tougher. Dauch pointed out that because the new aspect would increase difficulty by such a high degree, it would be balanced with a few powerful items and some Crossroads cards that weren’t too punishing (perhaps even beneficial).
No word yet on when to expect a Dead of Winter expansion, but know that one is in the works.
Plaid Hat’s Spectre Ops is one of our most wanted games of 2015. So if the Dead of Winter expansion doesn’t arrive soon, at least we’ll have this slick-looking spy game to play in the meantime.
