 That looks awesome :) Unfortunately, they've played right into one of my pet peeves:

Wunderkind is a real, actual German word.  And it's spelled exactly as I've spelled it.

Wünderkind is a fake, German-looking word that is utterly meaningless.

Cmon, FFG, you know there are people around who actually SPEAK German whom you could ask about these sorts of things.

 Test run looks stupidly good, I wonder what its cost will end up being.

Except this is the future and is a sub culture of hackers so likely they know and don't care since they are hackers or just made it up.

Looks like I will be trying out Shapers after all. Also Chimera looks OMG, especially if the runner has neglected a breaker type or just doesn't have that type out yet.

Ooh, more HB retrieval. Project Vitruvius will most likely be replacing my PSFs.

You think a bunch of computer hackers would willingly introduce characters into their title that are deliberately harder to type?

 

Wait…yes, that's exactly what they would do.  Carry on then.  (But I'm pretty sure that's not what FFG was thinking when they made that choice.  Cf. the ridiculous umlauting in Tannhäuser.)

I am waiting for the runner who's entire name is in leetspeak.

Yeah they've done a nice job of selectively covering some crucial info on some of those cards!

A great set of cards from what we can see though.

First pack is December and second pack is in January this pack is February. It's on the Upcoming page. Also FFG always gives 3 months preview time for distributor orders.

Chimaera looks fantastic. It makes me kinda wish that there were some sort of shell game corp could play with its unrezzed ICE, moving Chimaera around in such a way that the runner doesn't know where it is anymore. Doubt FFG would design a card like that though, and I have no idea how you would make it work from a gameplay perspective.

 I really would love to know Test Runs cost so I can proxy it.

Man, Sunset is such a tease. I think the only text you can make out is that the flavor text is a quote from Mac.

Anyone have any guesses about what Joshua B. does? "When your turn begins … click. If you do, take … ends."

maybe gain a click and take brain damage at end of turn.

@radiskull: I think it's hypercorrection. Because non-ASCII letters tend to be replaced when going from one language to another (especially to English), they probably figured they should put a few back (and chose the wrong word). Or it's just like heavy metal umlauts…

Well, they used the word "wünderkind" in the article describing Chaos Theory, so I think it's just a straight-up error.  But as I said on BGG, if it IS hypercorrection, I'm very much looking forward to the newly-spoiled card P?ø??ct Vït?u??uß.

At least they're consistent. Though apparently, they know French better, since they wrote "déjà vu" correctly.
