Exodus: Edge of Extinction – Kickstarter Edition
Exodus: Edge of Extinction is the first expansion of Exodus: Proxima Centauri (revised edition). The printing of this expansion, along with a reprint of the base game itself, was successfully funded via Kickstarter.
The original Exodus: Proxima Centauri was a distinguishable entry among other 4X games of the new wave, leaving its unique mark on the gaming world. With a game play focused on high-octane conflict fueled by raging war and cutthroat politics, it also introduced players to a rich science fiction setting, with its own back story and its own secrets. Exodus: Edge of Extinction expands both the gaming and the narrative aspect of Exodus: Proxima Centauri into an even more epic space strategy empire building game.
Exodus: Edge of Extinction represents the next chapter of an immersive story in which the remnants of humanity go to war against each other over a system they believe to be Proxima Centauri. Each player leads one of six unique factions with their own histories, strengths, unique special abilities and a set of new, exclusive technologies.
Exodus: Edge of Extinction also brings larger fleets, custom action cards and completely new mechanisms like the Combat Cards, adding a whole new layer to the spectrum of strategies already available in the base game.
The Kickstarter edition of Exodus: Edge of Extinction differs from the retail edition in that it contains the Exodus: Edge of Extinction – Kickstarter Limited Components, which further enhances the content introduced in this expansion by adding more faction specific Action Cards, additional Combat Cards and Political Cards, along with more scenarios for solo play.
Some Kickstarter backers received the Kickstarter Limited Components inside the expansion box, whereas others received the extras packaged separately. In all cases, however, the box itself for the Kickstarter edition is identical to the retail edition. The only way to tell if it is a Kickstarter edition or not is by examining the contents. In addition, these extras are available separately. None are Kickstarter-exclusive.
