If a gaming website were to have some type of “Best of” at the end of the year (spoiler, we’re doing it the week between Xmas and New Years), I think you’d find at least one writer putting in a vote for Twilight Struggle. If not the best app of 2016, it’s near the top and yesterday we learned that it’s going to get better before 2016 ends. Playdek announced that not only is the game making its long-awaited debut on Android, but it’s bringing with it an expansion pack and more. Oh, and it all happens next Monday.
While coming to Android is huge news for Android users, it’s not a bad deal for Cold Warriors on other platforms, either. The game will launch on Android at 50% off (only $5) and that sale price will also go into effect for the iPad version. Like playing on your laptop? Don’t worry, the Steam version of Twilight Struggle will be discounted as part of the Steam Winter Sale.
All platforms will also be getting new content in the form of an expansion and more. The mini-expansion is called Turn Zero and allows alternate starting scenarios for both superpowers. No idea how it will work, but color me intrigued. There are also some promo cards being released, an alternate Space Race track, and the card art from the deluxe cardboard edition. All this content can be yours via a $4 IAP on iPad and Android, and $5 for PC/Mac.
If you were a Kickstarter backer, the expansion content should be gratis. You can head over here (login required) and check out how to get your juicy new content just for being you.
