News seen on ICV2 and confirmed on the WizKids website today gives a detailed look at the new edition of Relic being released in two flavours, one Standard Edition with unpainted character busts and a Premium Edition with “highly detailed painted busts”, both of which will be coming in July this year.
The prices given for the two editions are $69.99 for the Standard Edition and $119.99 for the Premium Edition, though of course I will be looking to snag both versions, so there’s no hope for me!
As for changes to the original game, the WizKids site says that –
“The new WizKids edition features improved and expanded highly-detailed busts of the ten available player characters, as well as upgraded punchboard player and scenario cards.”
– so it seems that they’ve basically left the game alone, save for a few tweaks as they did with the recently released Fury of Dracula reprint which was also previously available from Fantasy Flight Games.
