Could you share which characters will be playable in Rebirth?

Any Promo characters with the first print run?

this is the description :

"Classic DC Deck-Building Game mechanics with Campaign Scenarios, character progression, with villain and character movement

Play as Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg, The Flash, Jessica Cruz, or Simon Baz. The Justice League is back!

Each Scenario includes SPECIAL RULES, NEW CARDS, and DIFFERENT LOCATIONS. Plus SIDE MISSIONS!

Play Cooperatively, Competitively, or Solo!"

No promos in the Rebirth box due to the nature of the product (progression, standees, etc).
We will have a launch kit, though.

In Rebirth, are you the same character across the 8 scenario run or are there points at which you can change characters?

There is nothing stopping you from switching characters mid-campaign, but it's designed with the intention that you play through it as the same character so you can see your deck evolve.

It's a kit that retailers can order to help raise awareness of the game when it launches.
It comes with several copies of the Training Scenario and 1 Playmat.

Your store (or their distributor) can order it through PSI.

Apologies for missing this, but did the entire engine of Rebirth change? It's listed under Cerebus now and compatible with the other DC games. I know the marketing material used to boast about the new engine being used, but that info is gone.

Engine hasn't changed much at all during design. It's always been a Cerberus variant, like Confrontations or Attack on Titan. The core game mechanisms are the same, but there are new mechanisms added on as well.

Is there a Rebirth launch kit retailer flyer I can share with my local gaming store?

Is Rebirth releasing simultaneously with the Cryptozoic sales at Gen Con or is that a pre release?

Simultaneous release at hobby and GC. Some hobby shops might have it the day before GC.

With the plethora of additional content that is coming with the Rebirth set (i.e. scenario packs, character-advancent cards, character standees, locations + Basic stacks, threat track and new tokens/tiles), will we be seeing a newly designed insert for the game to help manage/organize the new components?

BenJazz

Also, did we ever get a confirmation on the Launch Kit Item code or flyer?

Here it is. We are sending them out to stores this week.

Great! I will let me retailer know.

So... about that insert :D I feel this one may stay separate from the Multiverse Box as I can't imagine it being easier to organize with just the divider.

Yes, Rebirth is much better stored on its own. However, if people are playing Multiverse, at least there is a place to put them in the big box for easier, temporary access.

With just under 3 weeks until the release, will we be seeing a digital version of the Rulebook going up on the website? :D

Possibly next week. Comic-Con is this week.
I'm also going to write a preview article.

looking forward to this at gen con. i was concerned when i first read the quick description, talking about scenarios and campaigns. it sounded a lot like marvel legends deckbuilder which is garbage compared to the DC deckbuilder. but i watched the video on this game that crypto has up and it sounds interesting and nothing like the marvel legends game. so you got me, i'll give it a go. Will def be hitting up crypto's booth at gen con on thursday.

Iím very curious to read in the rule book how to migrate cards from the older sets into Rebirth.

FYI Cryptozoic has pre-orders available for Gen Con pick-up through BGG. The link below will show you all of Crypto's products for sale and the new releases have the green button for the Pre-Order. Pre-Orders are accepted until July 26 and you can stop by the booth to pick-up whenever is convenient for you :)

i am thinking about picking up the small metal painted DC superhero minis i've seen in places like Walmart to replace some of the main characters little cards with stands. Seems like a cool way to enhance the feel of the game using awesome minis.

I believe they are identified as Basic for their type. I saw somewhere else that there is a new sub-type of Move on a number of the cards.

You could replace them with Mighty Meeples and go Proto-Rebirth.

Only issue I see with this is there are 2 characters that don't come in metal minis

Are there any plans to sell a set of upgraded characters (Mighty Meeples or something) for Rebirth? I'm guessing this depends on sales.

Since DC Rebirth comes with standees, I decided to get myself some character upgrades. :D

What do you mean New Simon? To my knowledge this is his first appearance in the DC Deck Building Game

I think he is talking about the Heroclix Rebirth set, not DC DBG.

Yeah, I was talking about Heroclix. Sorry for the confusion. His current sculpt isn’t that great. I knew they had announced the first appearance of Jessica Cruz in the Heroclix Rebirth set, so I had hoped her sector partner would get a better sculpt in that set.
