Infinity CodeOne is a sci-fi skirmish wargame from Corvus Belli with an anime/cyberpunk feel. CodeOne is a streamlined version of their Infinity wargame and while it includes the core mechanics of Infinity, it has a limited army pool of 4 factions and a maximum limit of 10 units in a force. CodeOne is a beginner-friendly Infinity experience as the limited pool to draw forces from means that there is less to learn for a new player in terms of troops, abilities, and weapons. Army purchases are also streamlined for CodeOne, with only a couple of boxes for each faction beyond the core starter set. Two of the possible sets for each army are the Booster Pack Alpha and Booster Pack Beta, which contain specialists to enhance your army lists and give you access to different playstyles. In this article, we'll detail what's in each Booster Pack for each faction, so you can see what you'll add to your games buy picking it up.
