Got my physical copy yesterday! I wonder how many more expansions they’re going to release.

One for each career type at least, I believe.

One expansion I was thinking about recently that I'd like to see at some point is a source book for all the different Alien variations we've seen throughout the comics, games, figures etc. There are so many out there beyond the ones we've seen in the movies - which mostly all have stats now between the current releases - that it'd be great to get some (and a bit more lore and artwork) for things like the Bull Alien or the King or the Queen Face Hugger.

The only downside could be that they might not be able to include the Predalien or things like the Carrier or Ravager and others that appeared in an AVP context. So that wouldn't be too great. But regardless, if it was as comprehensive as possible it would still be a really cool expansion to have, both from a gaming and a lore standpoint.

Glad to see the stuff in this making its way into other Alien media.

Yeah I love how much stuff from the RPG has shown up in Fireteam Elite (too much, in some cases!), and even a couple of nods to Fireteam in the Colonial Marines Operations Manual. It really helps give a sense of a cohesive, interconnected Alien universe with its own lore and events outside of just the movies, and that's super cool.

I keep trying to get Gaska to write an Alien RPG: Feline Survival Guide, a supplement for running cats as NPCs and player characters.

Ya I was surprised that they mentioned General Vaughn and her role in the frontier war considering how recently the Operations Manual came out. But I’m with you on this giving us that interconnected universe feel.
