The Trail of Ithaqua for Elder Sign: Omens IOS Released

Continuing their foray into the IOS world Fantasy Flight Games has announced the release of a new campaign and other enhancements for Elder Sign: Omens, now available for iOS (OS X and Android updates will be released shortly)!

Set out on The Trail of Ithaqua

Take your investigators on a harrowing expedition to the frozen north in The Trail of Ithaqua, a new campaign available via in-app purchase! A sinister force has laid siege to a team of archaeologists in the heart of Alaska. Among these beleaguered souls is your friend and colleague, Dr. Ashley Lott, who has sent a message begging for your help.

During the first part of this two-part campaign, investigators must gather ample supplies to keep them alive in part two.

Malevolent forces have hounded Ashley and her team ever since they unearthed an ivory effigy, which she managed to have shipped back to you at the museum. Upon receiving the statuette and letter, the museum is attacked by the very forces which had been harassing Dr. Lott in the Alaskan wilderness.

Since the museum is invaded by intruders, there are no Elder Signs to be gathered in the first phase of the game. The focus of this stage of the campaign is instead on procuring supplies in the museum. Supplies are won by completing adventures, or they can be purchased with trophies, so make sure you’ve gathered a sufficient stockpile before setting out on a rescue mission to Alaska!

Once in the frozen north, one unit of supplies is used every time an investigator takes his turn. When the supplies run out, your brave investigators are steadily drained of Stamina at the beginning of each turn as they languish from starvation and exposure in the unforgiving wilderness! Despite these brutal conditions, your team must gather Elder Signs, which represent the journey toward Dr. Lott’s last known location.

Grizzly Bears and grisly murders await, in just two of
the twenty-five new adventures in
The Trail of Ithaqua.

Twenty-five new adventures await the investigators in The Trail of Ithaqua, but the hazards of exploring the wilderness are compounded by the supernatural creatures and forces that hunt your party as you progress. The things lurking the woods are closing in, and players must fend them off while supplies dwindle.

The yetis of the frozen plains show no mercy, while starving wolves and
terrifying byakhees shadow the investigators’ every move.
Ten fearsome new monsters await.

Hulking Yetis stride through the forest, exacting a terrible price of two stamina in defeat and yielding no trophies for the bedraggled party of investigators. The wildlife that inhabits these woods has also been slowly corrupted by the presence of otherworldly forces. Normally harmless packs of wolves prey upon man, and multiply at midnight if any are left undefeated!

A Free Update Brings Even More

Whether or not you pursue The Trail of Ithaqua, the version 1.2 update offers a host of free enhancements…including a new Ancient One! Tsathoggua has sent forth its formless spawn into the museum, and now the whole town of Arkham is succumbing to the mind-numbing drain of the malevolent deity’s presence. Do you have what it takes to resist the haze that permeates the museum and lead your investigators to victory? Face Tsathoggua and save the town from the lethargic pall that has gripped its inhabitants before it’s too late!

Tsathoggua includes the new Formless Spawn and Hunting Horror monsters, as well as his own horrific Mythos effects and unique entrance costs. The new Monster Log feature lets players quickly review the details of all monsters currently in play, allowing you to better confront these horrific beasts. Version 1.2’s layout enhancements and minor bug fixes improve the overall game experience, and FFG is happy to announce compatibility with iPhone 5’s larger screen size!

There is more information on the update at the Fantasy Flight Games Website.
