Aeon's End is a cooperative game that explores the deckbuilding genre with a number of innovative mechanisms, including a variable turn order system that simulates the chaos of an attack, and deck management rules that require careful planning with every discarded card. Players will struggle to defend Gravehold from The Nameless and their hordes using unique abilities, powerful spells, and, most importantly of all, their collective wits.
Aeon’s End: Outcasts follows Z’hana, an original Aeon’s End breach mage who has turned her back on New Gravehold, and Xaxos, who was exiled after betraying his fellow mages. Xaxos comes to Z’hana with a quest to find a mythical legend, the Fountain of Souls, which can supposedly bring back mages who have fallen in battle.
While in the Void, the Gravehold life dial is replaced with Xaxos himself, who needs to be protected if you’re going to stay safe from the corrupting atmosphere of the Void. Unlike Gravehold, Xaxos is a mage in his own right and can help the players out with powerful abilities.
In addition to the new mode, Aeon’s End: Outcasts comes with eight fresh mages that each bring their own playstyle to the table. With more unique breaches, more thought-provoking cards, more mage-specific tokens, and more entirely brand new mechanics, even veteran Aeon’s End fans will be delighted by this new and exciting experience.
Outcasts can be played by itself or combined with previous Aeon's End base sets and expansions.
