Really hope that this is not just a "one off" and it gets support and expansions…

Relic Rulebook - Page 21 -

The Coming Conflict

Fans of Talisman may notice that in Relic players
cannot directly attack each other. This is important
because all players in the game serve and protect
the Imperium of Man.

That said, Relic is not a cooperative game and
players can interact with each other through Threat
cards, Mission cards, scenario sheets, and character
abilities. Those seeking more direct conflict can
rest assured that we have big plans for the future.
Through expansions, we aim to provide more robust
and exciting player-versus-player experiences.

Dude, it's an FFG game. Look at Talisman, how many expansions to date does it have? They can milk 40k for at least the same number.

 

Eye of Chaos expansion

Waaaagh expansion

Eldar expansion

Exterminatus expansion

and so forth. Note, those have specific themes, they could also just do 'here's more cards' expansions without specific themes.

Doesn't automatically mean expansions. Two of my favourite FFG games, Gears of War and Middle-Earth Quest have neither gotten an expansion, while "crap" like Battles of Westeros and Runewars get them avergonzado_triste .

As the earlier quoted passage from the rulebook states they seem to see this as a new big thing for them. Probably correctly. Warhammer 40k and Talisman are two incredibly popular things for them. Unfortunately for things like Gears of War and other smaller games they probably never sell enough copies to justify the amount of effort and money it would take for a full expansion.

I know it's not much compared to the amount of expansions for some other FFG games, but Gears of War has a PoD expansion available…

As for Relic, I think that FFG may take a similar distribution model to the one they have applied to Talisman. One small box with new playable characters, rules and card decks, followed by a big box, with new board and the rest. 

The possibility of adding new themed threat decks seems like a fairly obvious addition and one that will add variety to the gameplay.

Indeed, they could release themed threat decks for days considering the range of enemies available in Warhammer 40k's fiction. The Tau, Dark Eldar, and Necrons have been left completely untouched. Just release them each in their own little mini expansions with some new characters and various other cards and you're set. Then you have several board expansions that add sectors of space controlled by the various new races. Voila.

I'm hoping that we see something like the Talisman corner boards. I'd love to see a Necron tomb or space hulk board to explore.

I think they'll add chaos to playable characters next because it says theres no pvp at the moment because they are for the imperium so chaos should be a playable race so pvp would make sense :) …fingers crossed

The problem I can see with Chaos as playable characters would be that it makes no sense when you consider the corner spaces of the tiers which are Imperial. Chaos shouldn't be able to use them. I think they will keep characters to just imperial but that PVP will be allowed should a character reach X number of corruption cards.

Bah, even non-corrupt Imperial factions are ready and willing to cut another's throat to get ahead, Inquisition and Mechanicum being the worst backstabbers because they seem like the most law-abiding but instead will do just about anything for their specific goal, murder of innocents included. Wouldn't be a stretch at all for the Rogue Trader character to get attacked by an Inquisitor.

Being a HUGE Necron fan… I look forward to a Reaper Expansion (I mean Nightbringer). I certainly hope for some Necron love in the next expansion!

I can see a Space Marine only expansion, with rules for various chapter characters (i.e. Space Wolf, Blood Angel, etc) or maybe "character" types like Chaplain or Librarians.

Boardgamers of today are almost spoiled. Back in my day you bought a game and were lucky if an expansion came out at all. This game has barely hit the shelves and players are already screaming for expansions. And expecting them with a year tops…

People should always strive for more and if people are already wanting more expansions that just shows this is a success. :)

You don't think that if there was this kind of demand then that such wouldn't be made? If anything the developers are probably rejoicing over this, sure it's more work but it's MORE WORK which in turn means more money and a successful game.

They should keep to a few expansions that are all planned together. Things tend to go astray when new sets are released one after the other without order. Importantly they need to keep to the quality to what is an excellent top notch game. Even so, I certainly look forward to new characters. Perhaps they could release new characters types like an Imperial Guard Veteran, Elder Scout, Alien Bounty Hunter or Hive Ganger etc.

The occasional trolling can actually be a useful tool to lessen the drudgery of unemployment…
