Norwegian Outpost presents new mechanics, giving players even more tension and gameplay opportunities. As in the base game, the key lies in the emulation abilities of The Thing, hiding its identity under a cover of fake humanity. Once again, the Alien will try to escape, with the UFO or with the Dog Escape, and spread everywhere! The mechanics are different on many levels and will lead the players to different choices. First, this time the Humans can escape individually. Anyone who manages to escape will immediately be declared a winner, while the others will continue to play as normal. Furthermore, the escape vehicles are ready to use from the beginning, making the risk of the Alien escaping real enough to convince the humans to voluntarily sabotage their own vehicles, adding to the importance of the Sabotage action.
