The latest expansion for the Fantasy Flight Games Lovecraftian co-op title Eldritch Horror has been released. In Masks of Nyarlathotep, one to eight players will look to thwart the nefarious Messenger of the Outer Gods in order to prevent a world shattering return of one of the Ancient Ones. The expansion brings plenty of new twists and is for ages 14+, plays in about two to four hours, and carries an MSRP of $49.95.
Eldritch Horror: Masks of Nyarlathotep is an expansion for Eldritch Horror, a cooperative board game for one to eight players in which intrepid investigators must traverse the globe in an attempt to thwart the cataclysmic rise of an otherworldly Ancient One. Strange cults are gathering strength in remote corners and bustling cities all over the world. Though they seem to worship different gods, the investigators have found a thread that runs throughout all of the cultists’ horrific rites.
In Masks of Nyarlathotep, each of these sects pursues the awakening of an aspect of the same horrific creature: Nyarlathotep. This being is known as the Messenger of the Outer Gods, and he is the only Ancient One that still actively walks among humanity. The investigators must work to stop the cults springing up to serve his many guises, or Nyarlathotep will gain enough strength to open the Ultimate Gate, ushering in an unthinkable doom. Strike down these cults in new Adventures, explore ancient mysteries among new Mystic Ruins, and destroy the monstrous followers of Nyarlathotep. New to this expansion, Personal Stories unique to each character add stakes to the actions undertaken by each investigator, and a Campaign mode adds a fresh challenge and enriches the narrative of the investigators’ struggles to stop the many cults worshiping the multitude of faces worn by one dread being in Eldritch Horror: Masks of Nyarlathotep!
Masks of Nyarlathotep brings new Unique Assets, Spells, Items, and more to help battle these new and terrible threats. This expansion also includes two new Ancient Ones, five new Investigators, a new Mythos Deck, and new Other World and Encounter Cards.
