Operation Wildfire enemies unlocked! Also, Revenant expansion is coming!
Hello again, dear backers! We’re here with another Infinity Defiance super update, but this one is very, very special.
First things first: thank you for achieving the present unlock. We’re talking about the Enemy cards that complete the miniatures of Operation Wildfire.
They are the cards and tokens of the Mentor, Shrouded, Kappa, Delta, Epsilon, and Gangbuster.
For those who like fluff, here are some details about the troops appearing in Operation Wildfire, already available for Infinity Defiance thanks to this unlock:
MENTOR SHASVASTII TACTICAL MONITORING COMPANY
Mentors are constantly monitoring the enemy activity as much as their own, looking for flaws and weaknesses in the first, and real and potential threats to the second. The objective of these tactical monitors is two-fold: fundamentally, to provoke the ruin and destruction of the adversary, causing as much fear and damage as possible, but also, faithful to the cautious and preventive mentality of the Shasvastii, preventing the collapse of their strategy and ensuring that it is executed as perfectly as possible. As tactical monitors they will do whatever it takes to maintain control of the battle. For this reason, Mentors are considered an objective of interest, both for military and intelligence purposes, because their level of danger to the adversary is such that it cannot be limited to a single parameter.
THE SHROUDED, SHASVASTII PIONEER CORPS
Shasvastii Pioneers spearhead every invasion by the Continuum Expeditionary Forces. They reconnoiter the enemy, gather information, evaluate potential and actual threats and carry out pre-emptive attacks when appropriate. In times of peace, their job is to locate new sites for future colonies of the Shasvastii Continuum. In times of war, they become the stuff of nightmares for enemy intelligence services, devoting their hearts and souls to stirring up trouble and spreading misery. Their combat suits are formed of superimposed fabric layers made out of sensitive bioquantronic textiles covered in mimetic cells. When inactive, the loose-fitting combat suit somewhat resembles a burial shroud, hence the appellation given to them by human troops.
The Human Sphere is vast and can be a very dangerous place. So, sometimes, upholding the law and protecting the citizens requires a better-prepared and better-equipped type of agent than the average patrolman. It’s on these occasions that the Kappas are deployed on the field. This unit is the core of Bureau Aegis’s paramilitary troops and belongs to O-12’s authorized police force. Kappa Units are this international body’s main peacekeeping troops, the thin blue line keeping us from chaos, which means they often find themselves forced to work in the worst places humanity has ever created.
Honoring the old tradition of the special operations units that have carried this name, the Deltas are O-12’s special commandos in charge of carrying out the most spectacular and risky missions imaginable. This unit is composed of elite assault troopers, specializing in lightning attacks, close quarters battle, counter-terrorism operations, and in extremis rescue missions. Their psychological profile reveals that they are all genuine thrill-seekers who wait for their next mission with such a craving for adrenaline that it makes their job look like it’s nothing more than an extreme sport—the most extreme of all.
The Epsilons are among the top representatives of the Bureau Aegis, experts in Intelligence and Special Operations, as well as political-military analysts. They feel equally comfortable in the corridors of the Öberhaus in Concilium as they do in the middle of the political intrigue between the great powers. Notwithstanding, when they must carry out military and intervention missions, the Epsilons become commandos that are expert in Search and Destroy operations, asymmetric warfare, and combat control.
From a tactical point of view, the Epsilon troops are extremely effective, versatile, and lethal, and probably one of the most fearsome adversaries you can face on a battlefield as well as in the political arena, and we are not sure which of these two settings is more dangerous.
GANGBUSTERS, SPECIAL CRIME SQUAD
The special agents with the Special Crime Squad (SCS
) have been trained to operate from within the most dangerous criminal environments imaginable. They can infiltrate criminal organizations going undercover as intermediaries, hitmen, or any kind of mobster or thug necessary. But the truth is that Gangbusters have earned their nickname for being one of the best elite tactical units of Bureau Aegis. Despite their appearance and their unorthodox methods, these agents have outstanding tactical skills, although this is not surprising: their job requires it. Because, even if crime doesn’t pay, the Gangbusters provide payback, not with silver but with lead, and of a large caliber.
This unlock is available for the OUTCAST
expansion and the PLATINUM
FAQs REINFORCEMENTS PACKS
We also want to share with you a little FAQ
about Reinforcement Packs, we hope it may come handy:
Lately, we have been unlocking a series of Add-ons for Infinity Defiance that we’ve called Reinforcement Packs, and by reading some of your comments we’ve realized you have some questions about them.
This article will be a Reinforcement Pack mini guide.
● What kind of content comes with them?
Only the miniatures listed.
● Do I need to purchase all of them to fully complete the Infinity Defiance game?
Not at all. These Reinforcement Packs are add-ons that add some replayability to the game, but they aren’t necessary or indispensable to enjoy the full game experience.
● Where can those profiles be found to play in Infinity Defiance?
Depending on when they are unlocked, all the Reinforcement Packs’ profile cards may be in the Core (any pledge) box, or in the Outcast expansion box.
-Infinity: Defiance (CORE, COLLECTOR’S, DELUXE, and/or PLATINUM pledge) Onyx Reinforcement Pack and Morat Reinforcement Pack.
-Infinity: Defiance. Outcast (Expansion): PanOceania Reinforcement Pack, ALEPH Reinforcement Pack, Yu Jing Reinforcement Pack, and Nomads Reinforcement Pack.
● Why are the profiles apart from the miniatures?
The main reason is that we know that many long standing clients of our Infinity line may already have many of the miniatures offered through the Reinforcement Packs. If we had linked profiles and miniatures in the same box, we couldn’t reward our faithful and enthusiastic player base.
● Will I be able to play my Infinity armies’ miniatures in Defiance?
Some of them, yes - the ones that are part of Reinforcement Packs or have been unlocked during the campaign. Regardless, we’ll continue working towards including more content during the remaining days of the campaign.
● How can I play these Reinforcement Packs?
Through the campaign’s own updates we’ve been previewing a series of tables (work in process) that substitute the original enemies for those presented in the Reinforcement Packs. We will complete this effort for the definitive version. We’ve also published a video with clues illustrating how the system will work.
● Are all Reinforcement Packs the same?
Not at all. Just like every Infinity army has their own idiosyncrasies, we strive to have every Pack to have some of that “flavor”.
-Both Onyx and PanOceania have a T.A.G.
-The Morat have a different way to use packs of The Hungries and their ability to explode.
-ALEPH uses the Targeted State and guided ammunition to harass characters.
-Yu Jing focuses in defense and CC
-For Nomads, hacking will play a pivotal role.
● Will there be more Reinforcement Packs?
Of course, we have many more surprises in store for the campaign.
