Renegade Game Studios kicked off Renegade Con in style, announcing over 20 games at the opening panel. Those announcements include new expansions for established franchises such as Power Rangers, Transformers, My Little Pony, GI Joe, Vampire The Masquerade, Werewolf and more. They also highlighted the addition of big names like Sgt Slaughter to several games, which is when they revealed the panel’s biggest surprise. That would be the reveal of a Good Omens game, and it will hopefully release later this year. You can view the full panel below.
They went through the Axis & Allies games, including a new edition of WWI 1914. They also revealed that a fan vote will help decide which other games in the franchise get reprints. They then moved on to Power Rangers where they first unveiled the latest addition to the Power Rangers Deck-Building Game franchise, which is SPD To The Rescue. The expansion will feature the B Squad battling it out with the A Squad, and the Bonus Pack will be included in pre-orders for the game from Renegade’s official website.
