Pandemic – On The Brink Gets A Release Date [Second Edition]

pandemic_onthebrink

Pandemic, the co-operative game produced by Z-Man Games swept the hobby gaming world and quickly became a favorite of many people. Racing against the clock and trying to control diseases before they infect the world is much more stressful than you may think. An expansion to Pandemic was released in 2009, and now the second edition of On The Brink is being made available. After its pre-release event at Origins (June 12th-16th), we will be given the chance to purchase this game on June 26th.

With less than a month before On The Brink hits shelves, a few peeks into what this expansion will contain have been released to the public. More help is being thrown into the mix with the addition of new roles and will include rules for up to 5 players. Some new optional challenges will come to the board, including the following :

The Virulent Strain challenge makes one disease become particularly deadly in unpredictable ways.

The Mutation challenge adds a fifth (purple) disease that behaves differently than the original four.

The Bio-Terrorist challenge pits one player against the others!

New roles include the Field Operative, Troubleshooter, and the Archivist. Some of these new roles, events, and other various cards can be previewed on the game’s Facebook page.

Pandemic : On The Brink will retail for $34.99, and if its half as good as the original game, will certainly make its way into our game library. If your local game store doesn’t already know about this awesome game, you should give them a heads up so that a copy can end up in your hands. Are you ready to face these deadly challenges and save the world? Or will you take on the role of the Bio-Terrorist and destroy your opponents efforts to stop the outbreaks?
