As the first cycle, the Genesis Cycle does not have its own specific thematic or mechanical identity. Instead, it was an expansion or completion of the Core Set, rounding out a strong basic set of cards to start off the game's card pool. One way it did this was it added a 2nd Identity for each of the seven Factions.
However, the cycle did have a strong mechanical emphasis on Tracing, exploring the new trace mechanism that was one of the largest changes to the game rules during the reboot (from the original Netrunner CCG). It also introduced a lot more Central Server multi-access cards, including the first HQ multi-access cards.
