Explore the Ruined World

Years ago, The Collective rebelled against The Republic, turning their own factory against them and creating a resistance. Since then, we’ve managed to carve out enough from The Republic to survive. But there’s more to survival than gaining independence.

The world that The Republic abandoned as they put up walls and hardened defenses is barely charted, and we know for certain there’s more out there that neither us nor The Republic can fathom. We need to explore and map all of the infected and abandoned wilderness that’s out there. That’s where you come in.

Your mission, Aces, is to go out into the Infected world and chart territory, eliminate threats, and make discoveries. Pack for a long deployment. Who knows where you’ll end up, and who can say what you’ll find there?

The Infected World

This is a season of gameplay content for APOCALYPSE FRAME split into four parts:

  • Wilderness (April 2022): Introduces a new Division dedicated to exploration, as well as new loadouts (and a new Frame), rules for creating a procedurally generated map at your table using randomized rolls, and mechanics around exploration.
  • Territory (May 2022): Expands this mapping concept by introducing Territories: areas controlled by challenging groups of enemies that interfere with any missions in their area until dealt with. It also includes new enemies, including new Tyrants, and expands on The Claw in particular. A new Frame and expanded loadout options are included as well.
  • Caravan (June 2022): Expands the mapping concept even further by introducing Caravans: trade routes that boost enemies/enable nastier kinds and possibly grant bonuses to your Strike Team. This includes new enemies and expands on the Wayfarers in particular. A new Frame and expanded loadout options are included as well.
  • Trophy (July 2022): Expands player options greatly with unique Armaments, Systems, and Frames.

Hi! Is there any chance for more community copies?




How can I donate the amount later? Pretty tight this month since I'm from Latin America, but I love this product and you deserve the support! 


You can buy anything on itch again even if you’ve already purchased it!


Half-way to homebrewing an exploration division and BAM! there it is ready to go- exactly what I was after!

Perfect, hope it hits what you were trying to do!

Hi. I can't invest money on other products, and I don't know if I'll have the chance to play with your system. Anyway, I'd love to read the additional stuff you put in this The Infected World 💜.
I have some spare time and (I like to think) some skill, so I'd love to barter some Coat of Arms for your core book in exchange for this file. I see there are community copies, but I'd love to have an OK from you. Also, I'd happy if you'll use my coat of arms, and put me in the credits for the additional art.
Have a great day,
Andrea "Lord Lance" Parducci

In the following reply, the first one I designed. I played with the "slightly more sci-fi style". All original graphic by me, font is free, even for commercial use, with this note to be added:

No thank you, but please feel free to take a community copy!

Well, thanks anyway.

If you don't mind, I'll post the other two alternative coat of arms here, for the community, just as "fan-made stuff" created for your game. Maybe there's someone that could put them on custom cheat sheets or their mecha sheets. I had some fun doing them,  used for my relax routine.
If you don't like the idea, no problem, I'll remove them.


Go ahead and post ’em, sure!

I will definitely try to convince my friends to play APOCALYPSE FRAME next, Binary Star Games team!

I love the slick and simple layout by the way.

Thank you so much!


This looks SICK!


Thanks so much!


Result 4 of Settlement GM Turn Action/Consequence says to start a 'pitched firefight effect' but i cant find what that means. Is it just a hazard? Or something meant to spark my imagination? Cool expansion otherwise, that part was just a bit confusing (though I admit I may just be missing something)

(1 edit)

That’s an effect in the core game (pg15, the page before the combat example). Same with a few other things there like Electrical Storm and Low Oxygen.


Ah. My bad. Thank you though!

No problem! Glad you like the expansion so far!
