The game was originally announced in February (see “WizKids Heads for 'The Expanse'”) with a planned release of June. MSRP is $49.99, which has not changed since the initial announcement. The new release date is listed as October 4.
Players take control of one of the feuding forces of humanity: Earth’s UN forces, the military of Mars, the O.P.A. Belter rebels, or the mysterious Protogen Inc. corporation. Each faction has special abilities. The goal is to spread their faction’s influence throughout the solar system, positioning themselves on important Bases utilizing the characters and events of The Expanse universe – including the crew of the Rocinante.
The box includes Influence Cubes, Fleet tokens, player mats, action cards, Tech cards, tokens, a board, and rules.
