In Massive Darkness 2: Hellscape, it’s been 10 years since the Lightbringers defeated the Darkness. However, in real life it’s been less than 10 years since players got their first chance to join the fight with the original release of Massive Darkness. The game was a hit with players, and with the Kickstarter campaign for Massive Darkness 2: Hellscape just around the corner, veteran Lightbringers are rightfully wondering what happens to their favorite characters and enemies from the first game. Will there be a way to use them in the new game? The short answer is YES. For a slightly longer answer, let’s take a look at what’s coming in the Massive Darkness 2 Upgrade Pack.
The Massive Darkness 2 Upgrade Pack will be available Day 1 of the Kickstarter and will be included FOR FREE with every pledge that includes the base game. The upgrade pack will allow players to use their favorite Massive Darkness heroes and monsters in all of the new Massive Darkness 2 scenarios and campaigns. It contains new cards for all the various heroes, roaming monsters, mobs, and agents from the original game, including the expansions and Kickstarter exclusives, allowing the seamless integration of all your familiar favorites.
As with all heroes in Massive Darkness 2: Hellscape, the cards for the original Massive Darkness heroes will tie them to a specific class. These new classes each play wildly different from one-another. We’ll cover more about how exactly they work in an upcoming article. But suffice to say, the heroes will have much the same flavor as before, but upgraded to make them work with the new styles of play.
For the enemies, multiple cards are included for every monster, and specific ones will be used depending on the adventure level. For example, Roaming Monsters have cards for both Level 1-5 as well as Level 6-10. The heroes will have their work cut out for them as all these familiar favorites flood back into the dungeons and dark hallways once more, levelled up and ready to go.
As noted above, the Massive Darkness 2 Upgrade Pack includes cards for the heroes and monsters found in not just the original base game, but also all the expansion packs. So, no matter where your favorite good or bad guy came from, you’ll be able to bring them along with the new exploits of the Lightbringers.
