In the moment RE is only a Name without information. What mechanism will be used? Card driven, only D6?
So, I wait for more details.
From what I've picked up on This is Not a Test's (TINT) facebook group is that it'll use the same basic mechanism as TINT.

I really hope North Star are making cyberpunk minis for this... there are not enough cyberpunk miniatures in the world!

I'm not familiar with TINT, how does that work?

D10s system, you add a model's relevant skill to the result and either try to reach a target number (usually 10), or compare against your opponent's score.

Has a neat activation mechanic, every time you activate a model you roll an activation test. On a success, that model gets to spend two action points and you get to activate another model. On a failure that model gets one action point, and play passes to your opponent.

TNT is a really fun game, and I'm sure Reality's Edge will be too.

Sounds good, a real skirmish game. Only a few figures..

Yes TNT is anywhere from 3 to 10 mdels depending on faction.

Interested in what develops. I have bought a lot of the Osprey rules, some I use as is,
others as a 'Starter for 10' as a dear friend of mine says, i.e. stick on extra bits you like while
removing the bits you don't like.

 I like how activationworks in TINT. The Fun at version we use does something similar. Fail activation and you only get 1 action. Pass, you get 2.

I believe every faction can get up to 20 models, but it takes a a good chunk of campaign play to get there, and even then some factions have a much harder time of it than others. My longest campaign to date ended up with a 10 model warband, not that much bigger from where we started.

How about network? I think it's hard to work in a skirmish game.

From what I have seen hacking is a very important part of the game.

Looking forward to seeing more about this game. I am fallowing the Cyberpunk minatures but don't know of any other forums or pages to fallow to get more info. Unless he is posting more on his TINT page.
"Peace" is that brief, glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading.
