Revised and redesigned for the next evolution—Eclipse Phase Second Edition is now available for preorder!

Eclipse Phase is the game of transhuman survival. Technology puts the tools to defeat death, emancipate from need, and reshape bodies and minds in the hands of everyone, but it also provides the means for oppression and mass destruction. After losing Earth in a war with AIs, transhumanity disperses throughout the solar system and beyond, struggling to survive. In a typical Eclipse Phase game, characters belong to Firewall, a secret, cross-faction organization that protects transhumanity from extinction threats. Alternate campaigns involve traversing the mysterious Pandora gates to explore extrasolar worlds or navigating the treacherous terrain of high-tech criminal cartels.

Posthuman Studios focused on improving and simplifying the existing Eclipse Phase system, not re-inventing the wheel. Changes include:

  • Faster Character Creation — A package-buy character creation system lets people build characters quickly without missing essentials.
  • Streamlined Resleeving — An aptitude-linked pool system means that skills don’t need to be recalculated when a character resleeves (switches bodies).
  • Updated Gameplay — Reduced the number of skills and made them easier to acquire. Gear costs are replaced with a system that works the same whether you are buying gear, acquiring it with rep favors, or nano-fabbing. Combat, hacking, and other systems are also updated.
  • Four Sample Teams — Pre-fabbed teams can be dropped right into a game and serve as examples of balanced parties.
  • Redesigned Book — A spread-based organization keeps material close-at-hand with less page-flipping.

Additionally, most first-edition source material is compatible with Eclipse Phase Second Edition.

Other great RPG products are also available for preorder, such as Star Wars: The RPG 30th Anniversary Edition, Star Wars Roleplaying Game: Dawn of Rebellion Hardcover, and 7th Sea RPG—2nd Edition: Lands of Gold and Fire!
