[V2.x] Is the rulebook going to be updated?
[HoN v2.0] Is the rulebook going to be updated? Posted on [07/08/2017] à 05:10

Ok. Now I have an official posting to work from so here is the latest thoughts from DPG on the availability of v2.0 rules.


NOTE: This is not yet finalized, as DPG is still trying to work out the details. There is also no promised timeline for any of this. There are still outstanding projects that need to be addressed and the update will go through the queue like everything else.


And as always, this is a rough translation from my understanding of the Google-translated French text. Any errors are likely mine.


As I have mentioned before, the v2 rules will eventually be available in downloadable PDFs. That is updates for the Base box books, 1 for each scenario pack, and 1 for each punchboard that requires it.


The Compendium (without the artbook) may be available for sale as an iOS or Android app. That will include keyword-level pop-ups, links to reference pages, and other features to make it a dynamic document linked to your account. This is still a theoretical thing.


So you can pick up a digital version of the Compendium if you want to pay for it, but otherwise you can download the v2 rules to update your existing 1.x materials.


As for time frame, Axel did mention that he hoped to have it done in time for the History Game Paris Open.

Thanks Nostradunwhich, it is exactly that, but I want to precise something. I want to prepare the rule files in pdf for beginning of September. It will be hard to success to do it but I will try.


Concerning the dynamic version (like dynamic book sold on the Apple Store), we are at the step of finding all the necessary informations, so no schedule.

Great news!


Please make sure that whatever digital formats the HoN (and HoBR) rules are made available in are searchable and have high resolution images!

Whoah, I just ordered a compendium. Will that be a wasted purchase that is out of date when rules 2.0 pdf hits?

The Compendium is the first printing of the V2.0 rules. However, DPG eventually plans to rewrite all the existing rules books (Core, D-Day, Carentan, Pegasus, St. Mere) to bring them up to V2.0, which was what was being discussed in this thread.


This is also covered in the Product Index:

Rules

* Core Rules, v1.2b (PDF download)

* Compendium, v2.0 – Printings: 2017(LE)


As well as a post I just made 10 minutes before yours:

This section (RULES V2) is for the discussion of Heroes System Tactical Scale(tm) v2.0 rules mechanics, which currently are only available in the Heroes of Normandy Compendium.


So I will update the title of that one to make it more clear.

I'm happy to have both, and certainly don't want that kind of thinking to lead game publishes to avoid making PDFs available for fear of loosing business.

I am wondering if there is a date planned for the new version of the base game. I own an earlier version and would like to get an updated card set for my game and figure I would just wait to buy a copy of the new base game.


But if the newer box game is perhaps years away a search on ebay might be able turn up another copy of the base game with the newer cards in it.


In fact I am a bit concerned about the overall future of this fantastic game system.


I hope it keeps going strong for years to come.

Hi Ken,


As far as I know, the Second Edition of Heroes of Normandie hasn't gone into production yet. I have some inside information but can't tell you much at the moment about the timeline of this product.


There's nothing really wrong with the old decks, you can still use them, and as far as I know, the old decks will not be made redundant. I still use and enjoy them.


It's true that with Heroes of Stalingrad and Heroes of Black Reach, we got used to the new smaller decks with the alternate bonuses. If you have Heroes of Stalingrad as well, you can already start using these new decks in HoN as well. There are only five unique cards in each army's deck, the rest of the cards are common and are almost identical for each faction.

Thanks for the reply. I am playing solo and only using the alternative bonus. My decks do not have that.


I have Stalingrad and will use those decks.
