With the new Revised Core Set for Android: Netrunner, the Android setting has been advanced five years. Some of your favoruite characters may appear a bit older, the corporations may be pushing new agendas, but beneath the surface, they’re the same familiar runners and megacorps that you first fell in love with. Today, we have Story Manager Katrina Ostrander to talk about what the Android universe looks like, five years on from the classic Core Set.
The Revised Core Set is your ticket to the not-too-distant future of Android: Netrunner The Card Game. This is an age of sprawling megacities. Artificially intelligent bioroids and genetically modified clones work alongside cyborgs, g-modded humans, and naturals. Hoppers pass overhead in their skylanes, and in New Angeles, a Space Elevator most commonly known as the "Beanstalk" dwarfs neighboring arcologies and skyscrapers as it reaches beyond the Earth's atmosphere and gravity to serve as a low-cost launch for near-space travel.
With more than 240 cards, the Revised Core Set immerses you in this age and its high-stakes cybercrime. In this future of monolithic megacorps and augmented runners, the all-encompassing network is both one of humanity's greatest assets—and one of its deadliest battlefields. Transmitting more data every second than was expressed in the first 5000 years of written language, the network is home to all manner of data, including countless corporate secrets. While the corps guard these secrets behind layers of defenses known as ice, they still remain vulnerable to those elite hackers known as runners.
Built upon a classic design by Richard Garfield, Android: Netrunner casts these struggles between Corp and Runner as tense, asymmetrical, cat-and-mouse duels for control of valuable data. Jack in, and you enter a world of countless bluffs, counterbluffs, and economic struggles. Every moment offers new choices, and the Revised Core Set comes with everything two players need to dive deep into this acclaimed Living Card Game®!
