Breaking news, everyone! New Dice Masters entries were added to Wizkids’ solicits page (which can be found here).
Three items were added. The following is scheduled for release in November 2018.
- X-men Forever Campaign Box
Likely based around the 2001 miniseries of the same name, this should be a great opportunity for us to get some more awesome X-men characters. Maybe we’ll finally see a new Gambit or Nightcrawler, or maybe even a half-decent Rogue. Please, Wizkids?
As it’s a Campaign Box, we can reasonably expect 48 character cards (16 characters, 3 versions each), matching dice, and 10 basic action cards. The box should hold over 300 dice, which will be convenient storage for the new Team Packs mentioned below.
- Dark X-men Team Pack
The more surprising of the reveals, but this could lead to some really awesome art (fun trivia: the art from both Cloak and Dagger in Amazing Spider-man was taken from a Dark X-men cover). Some interesting new faces could include Daken, Dark Beast and Weapon Omega.
- X-Force Team Pack
With Wizkids having done a Deadpool and X-Force set in Heroclix not too long ago, I’m glad we’ll see some of them in Dice Masters. Could Cannonball and Caliban finally make their Dice Masters debut? Or maybe even Forge? Lots of awesome possibilities in this one.
Team Packs typically have 8 characters, with 2 dice and 3 cards per character, so this is likely what we can expect from both the X-force and Dark X-men Team Packs.
At this point, nothing has been revealed about the content of any of these, and we are aware of no pictures as of yet. We will be updating this article as news become available. Stay tuned!
EDIT: ICv2 posted an article on this set (which you can find here) that provides some additional information.
On the X-men Forever Campaign Box, the following characters, among others will be present:
- Lady Deathstrike
- Donald Pierce
The article refers to the X-men taking on the Brotherhood and the Hellfire Club, suggesting these are potential affiliations featured in the set.
The Dark X-men Team Pack will feature:
- Dark Beast
The X-force Team Pack will feature:
The article states that both team packs will also include several characters making their first appearance in Dice Masters. We’ll have to wait and see who’s added, but as I previously noted, there are some really interesting possibilities.
The article otherwise provides general information that fits what we’ve been told about campaign boxes and team packs. One other thing of note, is that the MSRP of the two Team Packs has gone up to $12.99, up from $9.99. We’ll have to see if these are worth the extra cost, but I’m cautiously optimistic. We’ll keep this article updated if more information becomes available.
