The fifth Campaign Expansion for Fantasy Flight Games Marvel Champions:  The Card Game will be Mutant Genesis, introducing the X-Men to the game’s options.  The expansion will release this fall.

Mutant Genesis focuses on the X-Men and their adversaries, including villains such as Sabertooth, the Blob, the Sentinels, and Magneto.  The campaign includes five scenarios, which can be played on their own or linked together to form a multi-part campaign in which the players must thwart the assassination of a senator, avoid an army of Sentinels, and ultimately face off against Magneto and the Brotherhood of Mutants on Asteroid M.

The expansion features two ready-to-play heroes, Colossus and Shadowcat, each offering their own style of play.  This expansion also introduces new modular encounter sets that can be used with any Marvel Champions games.  MSRP will be $44.99.  As an expansion, a copy of the Marvel Champions core set is needed to play with Mutant Genesis.

The X-Men campaign will also be supported by six Hero Packs, sold separately.  The first two Hero Packs, featuring Cyclops and Phoenix, will release alongside the Mutant Genesis set.
