G.I. JOE: Deck-Building Game – New Alliances

The Joes get a visit from an unexpected ally, Bumblebee, who warns that their arch-enemy Cobra has teamed up with their enemy, the Decepticons, and that what they are planning will not bode well for planet Earth or the people who call it home. 

The forces of Cobra have new allies in their plot to take over the world! Alien robots have landed on Earth and it’s up to G.I. Joe to figure out if they’re friend or foe! In this expansion, the Joe’s will have to team up with the Autobots and investigate the Cobra/Decepticon plot. Take advantage of the Autobots’ different modes to ride into missions or add some cybernetic muscle to your teams! Check out Bumblebee and Optimus Prime below!

Blood Bowl 3 gets a new trailer with everything you need to know

The game development studio Cyanide and French publisher NACON have released a brand-new trailer for Blood Bowl 3, available on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S on February 23, 2023.

Blood Bowl is a brutal fantasy football inspired competition populated by Elves, Humans, Orcs, and other fantasy creatures. But do you know the specific features of Blood Bowl 3? What you need is a little update for the new game a few weeks before launch. It’s lining up to be a smash hit!

There will be 12 factions available for the launch of Blood Bowl 3. The most iconic factions are returning, such as the Dwarfs and Dark Elves. But they will be joined by brand-new factions, such as the Imperial Nobility, Old World Alliance, Chaos Renegades, and the Black Orcs, not to mention new factions that will be added at a later date!

The dynamic pitches also hold their share of surprises: in certain situations, these pitches transform during the match and change the rules. Kraken, unbearable heat and insect swarms, these events are sure to create memorable moments!

Among the new features, Blood Bowl 3 includes a major redesign of the passing system to provide better team balance. Passing the ball is no longer linked to the Agility characteristic, but rather to a new characteristic: Passing Ability. You will also have the chance to learn new skills that will come in useful for devising your strategies.

The levelling up system has also been completely revamped to provide more flexibility and more balanced levelling within a team.

And many more features are there to explore! Player and team customization, a season system, and official ranking: all the new features will allow every coach to stand out and enjoy a unique Blood Bowl experience. You can therefore flaunt your own distinctive style in the Old World during the single-player Clash of Sponsors campaign and against other players.

Blood Bowl 3 will be available in several editions:

  • Standard (digital): 29,99€ PC / 39,99€ Consoles
  • Deluxe – Black Orcs / Deluxe – Imperial Nobility (digital): 39,99€ PC / 49,99€ Consoles

The Deluxe and Brutal editions give access to some exclusive customization content. Check the details on your favorite digital store. Get exclusive content as a bonus!

Corvus Belli reveals its February 2023 Infinity releases

Shakush Light Armored Unit (TAG)

Ref: 281414-0982
PVP/MSRP: 36,95 € / 43,99 $

Armies: Haqqislam / Ramah Taskforce / Hassasin Bahram
Some may think it sounds excessive saying that a lightweight TAG can crush the bones of any enemy, but only those who have never seen a Shakush in action will say that. Used wisely, taking full advantage of its potential without risking it in suicide operations, or even when doing so, the Shakush is a tactical element that can turn the tide of the battle.

Sale Info: This box includes an injected thermoplastic miniature of a Shakush with AP Spitfire and Heavy Flamethrower. This lightweight TAG will provide the firepower and endurance needed to make a difference in your Haqqislam army from your Operation: Blackwind box.

Agamemnon the Atreides (TAG)

Ref: 280872-0983
PVP/MSRP: 32,95 € / 39.49 $

Armies: ALEPH / Steel Phalanx

The Atreides is the asset that the Steel Phalanx deploys when things go awry. Agamemnon is the game changer, the one who can turn the tables, either swinging his mace or unleashing all his firepower on the enemy while he laughs at whatever his opponents throw at him.

Sale Info: This box includes an injected thermoplastic miniature of Agamemnon with AP Spitfire and Heavy Flamethrower. This lightweight TAG is the new addition to the Steel Phalanx army of your Operation: Blackwind box, providing the innate offensive power of the TAGs.

Kosmoflot Expansion Pack Alpha

Ref: 281128-0979
PVP / MSRP: 34,95 € / 41.99 $

Armies: Ariadna / Kosmoflot

Although Kosmoflot was conceived as a naval space force focusing on near-space naval operations and deep-space patrols with a tactical staff specializing in boarding tactics and security, its return to the moon of Tanit proved this approach to be insufficient. Yuan Yuan pirate attacks on helpless construction and mining crews scattered across Tanit’s surface made it clear that this force’s presence on the satellite must extend outside their docking facilities.

Sale Info: This box includes 3 miniatures: One Paracommando with Spitfire, one Volkolak Missile Launcher and one Armata Proyekt-4 Kosmosoldat with Autocannon. With this box you can expand your options when creating an Army List and continue the Ariadna or Kosmoflot collection you started with the Operation: Crimson Stone.

Tomcats

Ref: 281520-0987
PVP / MSRP: 32,95 € / 39.49 $

Armies: Nomads / Jurisdictional Command of Corregidor

Tomcat operatives must exhibit a great degree of versatility, and teams are composed of members with different domains of expertise to facilitate the success of their mission. The demanding conditions of their work, along with the specifics of Nomad administrative structure, dictate that the Tomcat teams work as a military unit. The Nomad Military Force has been known to put their exceptional skills to good use in combat as a rapid response support unit. Their role is to execute extraordinary rescue operations, immediate response missions, and in extremis hostage liberation actions. The bottom line is: they save lives.

Sale Info: This box includes 4 miniatures: One Tomcat Doctor with Combi Rifle, two Zondcats, and the brave Tomcats Sergeant, Carlota Kowalsky. The perfect tactical support for your Nomad force from your Operation: Crimson Stone box.

The Hungries: Gakis and Pretas

Ref: 281625-0986
PVP / MSRP: 39,95 € / 47.99$

Armies: Combined Army / Morat Aggression Forces

The Hungries are light combat operatives. Both Gakis and Pretas are likely trained using a reward-mediated trial-and-error system, expedited by the EI artificially stimulating their appetite centers. This might explain the Combined Army military designation for these creatures: ‘The Hungries’. Humans met them for the first time on Paradiso, where they codenamed them Gakis and Pretas, the Japanese and Hindi names for hungry ghosts, after their fierce attacks and their inclination to move in ravening packs.

Sale Info: This box includes 4 miniatures: 2 Gakis and 2 Pretas. There is nothing more terrifying for the enemy than knowing that the field of operation will be infested with these lethal creatures. An ideal complement to your Morat Aggression Forces Action Pack (Ref: 281616-0934).

Darpan Xeno-Station Scenery Pack

Ref: 285075
PVP / MSRP: 29,95 € / 35.99 $

Sale Info: The Scenery Pack includes a ready-to-play, double-sided printed cardboard scenery (4 Buildings, 4 Holoads, 2 Public Consoles, and 9 Blast Barriers), a Game Mat, and also cardboard Markers, Templates and a measuring tool. Everything you need to start playing!

The ideal complement to increase the cover of your gaming table.

Darpan Xeno-Station Scenery Expansion Pack

Ref: 285076
PVP / MSRP: 29,95 € / 35.99 $

Sale Info: With this expansion pack you can complement and expand the scenery from your Operation: Blackwind (Ref. OPBW).

This 3mm cardboard scenery pack, two-sided printed, includes an Objective room, two small buildings, a sniper tower, a console, two bridges, two staircases, an inner ladder, an inner walkway, and a 24×32 inch paper gaming mat.
