“You want to be cheap, be cheap. But you want to flex your muscles? Go ahead and do it. Do it right. You’re driving one of the world’s mightiest megacorporations. You have credits like most people have red blood cells. Now, you can use it. Lock up your servers. Safe.”

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the upcoming release of What Lies Ahead, the first Data Pack in the Genesis Cycle for Android: Netrunner!
As lead developer Lukas Litzsinger explained in our announcement of the Genesis Cycle, he wanted to expand upon the concepts of identity cards, faction-specific agendas, and skill to give both Corp players and Runners “greater freedom to choose the themes that best fit them.” Now, as we look forward to What Lies Ahead, the Data Pack’s sixty new cards (three copies each of twenty different cards) appear ready to do just that.
What Lies Ahead adds muscle and theme to each of the game’s seven different factions. Each of the corps receives a new agenda and a flavorful piece of ice, perfectly tailored to its base strengths. On the other side, the runner factions launch into the ongoing cyberstruggles with new icebreakers and support cards. Meanwhile, fans of the Anarchs and Haas-Bioroid should find the Data Pack particularly rewarding as each gains two additional cards, including a new identity. We’ve already revealed the new Anarch identity, Whizzard (What Lies Ahead, 1) in our announcement of the cycle, and he provides Anarch players a whole depth of new strategies based around trashing the cards they access.
