The risk with games is that they will go out of print. So scarcity is why you'd pre-order.
That said. I like the idea. I'd bite but $80 is too much to essentially supplement a game I already own. I never could bite on Descent for much the same reason. Especially after seeing the AARs and to see who small of a scope the campaigns really are.
If I were a richer man, I'd really enjoy FFGs developing vision and I'd support it but even though I'm considered a relatively good income earner, the price point for what is essentially DLC for what I already have is just too much, even if the physical materials and scale at which they were produced warrant the cost.
Also, to Daveman's review. In the original edition it was apparently fairly quickly that much of the game is puzzle solving and much of the puzzle solving is truth table/logic puzzles. You are balancing combats and sanity with gathering clues that allow more cracks at the logic puzzle to get to what an objective you have to learn.
I can't speak to the update.
I don't remember the secret objective. That makes me a little sad. This sounded like an interesting solo experience game but with individual secret objectives sort of ruin that.
