June 3, 2021 – To the Edge of the Earth is a set of two new expansions for the long evolving Arkham Horror LCG (Living Card Game), but that is not even the biggest news in the announcement. Not only is this a big release, but publisher Fantasy Flight games also dropped the news that they will be releasing Arkham Horror card game expansions differently going forward.
They say that the Edge of Tomorrow is two different expansions but it feels like one. You may have guessed that one of the expansions has nothing but player cards and the other has nothing but scenario cards, and you would be correct. Edge of the Earth Campaign Expansion will run you $59.95 and the Edge of the Earth Investigator Expansion will run you $39.95.
More information about the expansions is below, but a key takeaway from this long post from the publisher is that monthly Mythos Packs are no more. Starting with these, new content is just going to be released as expansions.
In the past, every month the Arkham Horror LCG would receive a Mythos Pack, a smaller collection of cards that would be launched as part of a cycle, alongside any larger expansions that would be released outside of a set schedule. However, instead of monthly Mythos Packs, Fantasy Flight will be publishing single expansions containing around the same amount of content instead.
To the Edge of the Earth – Expansion Information
In the far, uncharted reaches of Antarctica, unspeakable horrors dwell on the edge of shadows. They lurk, wait, and watch, and with them comes a secret so ancient and profound that it threatens to tear apart our very understanding of the planet we call home—if it doesn’t tear apart reality itself first. Thus, our intrepid investigators must delve into the mysteries of the great southern ice sheets and, hopefully, uncover the truth before it is too late. Will they save the world? Or will they perish in the icy depths?
In the Edge of the Earth Investigator Expansion, you’ll find a treasure trove of player cards the likes of which you’ve never seen in Arkham history. With five investigators and around 250 cards to expand your deckbuilding options, you won’t want to miss this opportunity to strengthen your player card content like never before.
Meanwhile, the Edge of the Earth Campaign Expansion has no player cards in sight. Instead, this expansion contains over 300 scenario cards to support the entirety of the Edge of the Earth campaign, including the materials for a breathtaking new story, branching paths, and more. The best part? All you need is a core set and a copy of this expansion to jump right into this chilling tale—no other materials required! While we will no longer be releasing monthly Mythos packs going forward, this single expansion contains about the same amount of content as an entire cycle from the old release model. It’s a full campaign all in one package!
