Fantasy Flight Games revealed Cosmic Encounter: Duel, a new standalone game in the Cosmic Encounter universe (see "'Cosmic Encounter' Gets New Standard Edition"), for release into trade in April 2020.

The Cosmic Citizenship Council is allowing a new alien species to join their body, but there two candidates that have been informed that they were accepted due to a clerical error. The only way to resolve this is to pit the two candidate alien species against each other in a fast-paced one-on-one battle for the right to become a Certified Civilization. Players take on the roles of the species, and use colorful ships, hidden tactics, and unique abilities to fight for control of a minimum of five planets to win the game.

Cosmic Encounter: Duel supports up to two players and will retail for $39.95.

Alongside the release of the game, Fantasy Flight Games will also release a 26" by 36" Cosmic Encounter Duel Gamemat with original artwork and a slip-resistant rubber backing. The gamemat will retail for $29.95.

Fantasy Flight Games also announced Secrets of the Crucible for the Genesys RPG (see "'KeyForge' Universe Comes to 'Genesys RPG' System.").
