Harebrained Schemes has announced the Heralds of the Great Weald expansion for its digitally-enhanced miniatures game Golem Arcana, releasing on April 22nd.  The company also shared plans for its next app update.

The Heralds of the Great Weald will include three new Zikia Golems for use with any Golem Arcana army.  The expansion set includes Warspite (Nightshade), Orgre (Prowler), and Titan class (Earthfall) golems.  The expansion will also include four new Relic Cards: The Chalice of Mist, Zephyr of Er-Haka, Ghora’s Mask, and The Nihata Laurel.  MSRP is $34.99.

Hairbrained explained details of organized play at Gen Con last year (see "'Golem Arcana' Fall Releases"), and added a Scenario Design feature as part of the December app update.  The next app update will expand the game from two players to eight.  It will include a Banner Designer that allows players to create unique army banners for use on-screen or to be printed for use with miniatures.  QR codes will allow players to transfer armies between devices when no wifi network is available.

New organized play features will include event registration, running, and reporting as well as the ability for Emissaries to unlock special scenarios and reward participants and winners.  The first competitive play season starts at the end of January and runs for three months.  Participation and winner rewards will be awarded digitally.
