A new expansion for Free League’s Alien RPG is on the way. Heart of Darkness is a complete stand-alone adventure, written by sci-fi novelist Andrew E.C. Gaska, that continues the plot threads established in the expansions Chariot of the Gods and Destroyer of Worlds.
The Alien Roleplaying Game has grown into one of Free League’s most popular products since its introduction in 2019. It’s successful enough that it’s about to expand beyond its tabletop origins. Free League announced today a partnership with Titan Books, who holds the license to make Alien novels, for a crossover storyline that will affect both the novels and the game.
Free League’s Alien RPG is one of their most successful products, and has received several additional campaigns since its release. The latest expansion, Colonial Marines Operations Manual, was announced last December for a March 2021 release. It hit a delay or two since that point, but it’s finally out now.
