KeyForge, Fantasy Flight Games’ ground-breaking smash-hit Unique Deck Game, is to debut its second set – Age of Ascension – at UK Games Expo.
With over 835,000 unique decks at time of writing having been registered worldwide on the game’s Master Vault app and website, KeyForge has made an explosive entry onto the market – and players will be champing at the bit to see what’s in store next. To that end, there will be a host of ways to discover the Age of Ascension at UKGE.
The first day of the show – Friday 31st May – will be the first day that the set is on sale in Europe, with retailers across the convention offering new decks to customers. Curious players will also be able to try out Age of Ascension decks when they visit the dedicated KeyForge tables on the show floor. Asmodee UK’s friendly and knowledgeable demonstrations team will be on hand to show brand-new players the ropes or to help experienced players get their first look at the myriad new possibilities.
There is also a festival of Organised Play for KeyForge at the Expo, with the UK leg of the game’s Vault Tour taking place all weekend! The main event launches on Friday and Saturday, with the best players from each day qualifying for the finals on Sunday. Age of Ascension decks are included in each player’s entry fee and a host of awesome prizes – some of them unique to the convention – can be won. There will also be smaller-scale side events running across the weekend. Ticket information can be found here.
Age of Ascension will not be the only major Fantasy Flight Games title going on sale in Europe for the first time at UKGE, however – players will also be able to get their hands on Star Wars: Outer Rim.
Casting players as the scoundrels of a galaxy far, far away, Outer Rim tells tales of outlaws looking to make their mark on the underworld, outfitting their spaceship with equipment and iconic characters, taking jobs and building a legacy. As well as getting the opportunity to recruit the likes of Han Solo, Lando Calrissian and Jyn Erso onto their side, players will have to balance their favour with the Galactic Empire and Rebel Alliance to get ahead.
We hope to see you at Birmingham’s NEC for UK Games Expo, Friday 31st May to Sunday 2nd June!
