Android: Netrunner video tutorial released, Fantasy Flight Games announces Future Proof, the final Genesis Cycle pack
I love Android: Netrunner, Fantasy Flight Games’ recent revival of the classic Richard Garfield collectable card game. The game plays amazingly-well out of the box, in my opinion (of course, I’m no pro, so I’m sure a lot of people have gripes). The good news is, for those people with gripes, Fantasy Flight Games has not been shy about supporting Android: Netrunner with new mini-expansions (called data packs). Now, FFG has announced the sixth and final data pack for the Genesis Cycle, the first cycle of expansions for the game. Called Future Proof, the expansion will include three copies of each of 20 new cards. The official announcement describes the contests eloquently: “In addition to their innovative new icebreakers, the game’s Runners get new resources and events while the Corporations focus on bolstering their servers and developing assets designed for open hostilities. When tricks, traps, and roadblocks don’t serve as sufficient deterrents, some Corporations will meet the Runners with swords in hand, ready for virtual duels.” Future Proof also introduces Hostile Assets for the Corp player, giving them assets that they can sit back and protect and attack the Runner with even if no run is made against them (which I’m sure sounds like nonsense if you’ve never played the game).
Hey! If you’ve never played Android: Netrunner, you might check out the Android: Netrunner video tutorial. It’s pretty high-gloss and is broken down into five parts introducing you to playing Android: Netrunner. Honestly, it would’ve been helpful before my first playthrough. I had some serious trouble wrapping my head around the rules at first until I actually sat down and played the game, at which time it all clicked into place.
