It’s nearly February, and Vengeance has now been out for more than a month. We thought now would be as good a time as any to check in and let you know how things are coming along.
Villains of the Multiverse
We continue to work hard on the next mega-expansion in Season 2: Villains of the Multiverse. If you can believe it, Villains of the Multiverse has two more decks than Vengeance does! While Vengeance has a few more unique cards, it’s still a lot of work, especially in the artwork and music departments. Several of the villains and environments are in the alpha testing stage. While we’re not yet far enough along to discuss a potential release date, we’re very happy with our progress so far. Keep an eye on #SentinelsLive, Tuesdays at 7:00 PM Eastern to be among the first to see new content!
Welcome to the Team
One way we’ve managed to keep up the pace we have with Villains is because the Handelabra team has gotten bigger in the new year. David Gottsegen has joined the team, and while his name doesn’t start with a “J”, we’re not holding that against him. Check out this recent episode of #Sentinels Live to get to know a bit about David, his connection to the Multiverse, and where he fits as a Handelabrat.
New Challenges Coming Soon
One of the stretch goals unlocked as a result of the Kickstarter campaign last year was Challenge Mode. Challenge Mode consists of special rules for each Villain to make victory that much more difficult to achieve. Some examples:
Omnitron: Dealing Omnitron 7 damage only destroys one Component card, heroes’ choice.
Citizen Dawn: Whenever a Citizen card is destroyed, Citizen Dawn deals the hero target with the highest HP 3 fire damage.
Spite: Spite can regain HP past his maximum HP.
GloomWeaver: Villain Relics are indestructible.
And if that’s not tough enough for you, this mode can be stacked with advanced mode for even more difficult battles! So why mention Challenge Mode now? Because in addition to Villains, we’ve also been hard at work adding this mode to the game! While much of the code work is done, this mode will require some pretty extensive testing, plus there are several Villains who still need challenge rules designed by Christopher. However, we hope to begin showing off Challenge Mode on #SentinelsLive within the next couple weeks, so tune in to see just how challenging Sentinels can be.
