Due to the addition of a werewolf-themed version of the spooky asymmetric board game, Betrayal at House on the Hill and 3rd Edition will look a lot more hairy. Later this year, The Werewolfs Journey: Blood on the Moon will introduce new components centered around a playable werewolf character and five related haunts.
Avalon Hill''s news comes as part of the Gen Con 2022 announcement process. Betrayal 3E hasn''t yet been released worldwide, including boxes scheduled to be released in the United States sometime in August, but the company is already supporting the popular title with the thought of a meaty first expansion.
Sara, a teen with a horrible secret that comes out when the Haunt phase begins, will be expanded as the roster of characters grows larger. Sara, in a press release, expresses her lycanthropic other half as feral, which may result in a slight loss of control in the light of a full moon. This will certainly make haunts that position Sara as the villain much more difficult, but she may bring some beneficial abilities to the survivors.
The expansion will come in a box with some stunning red and gold illustrations that complement Sara''s previous D&D rulebook photographs. It will feature two new room tiles, four additional cards, and a custom scenario, as well as five new haunts designed around Sara.
These character-centric haunts are a new addition in Betrayal 3E that our own Alex Meehan released as its best new feature earlier this year. These narratives impact which Haunt the players eventually uncover within the House, as well as other related Haunts, forming a loose narrative that was initially intended to avoid another disappointing television adaptation (more Teen Wolf humour!).
Avalon Hill said she expects The Werewolfs Journey: Blood on the Moon to be released sometime in October, but did not provide a more specific date or price information. Keep checking Dicebreaker for more information as it becomes available.
