Fantasy Flight Games Announces a Revised Core Set for Android: Netrunner The Card Game

In the not-too-distant future Android is getting a new Revised Core Set for Android: Netrunner The Card Game.

The new set will feature more than 240 cards taking you to a world of megacities, articially intelligent bioroids, and genetically modified clones, among other things.

If you’ve never played Netrunner, this new set will offer you a chance to boot up and jack into the popular card game. The set adjusts the base card pool, altering the battlefield, and aging your favorite characters.

The game pits two players against each other in a game of asymmetrical bluffs, counterbluffs, and economic struggles. You command a vast, monolithic megacorporation and its limitless resources, while the other person is a cybercriminal called a “runner” whose goal is to bypass your defenses and unlock your secrets. The goal is to score sevent points. The corps score points by advancing its agendas while the runner attempts to steal the agendas.

The Revised Core Set features 247 cards, 133 Corp cards and 114 Runner cards and it’s divided among the seven standard factions.

The Revised Core Set will NOT be legal at the World Championship in November.
