Three powerful Force users… and not a single Jedi among them.

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the upcoming release of two new Villain Packs and one new Ally Pack for Imperial Assault!

  • Maul Villain Pack
  • Emperor Palpatine Villain Pack
  • Ahsoka Tano Ally Pack

In the city where the Jedi Council once sat high enough above ground level to soak up the sun’s fading light, there are no more Jedi. The galaxy’s former self-appointed guardians have been swept aside by Order 66, and Emperor Palpatine has established an order of Inquisitors to hunt down and destroy any who still remain. Even those who simply demonstrated a sensitivity to the Force were at risk of being targeted, and many were captured and sent to a secret installation on planet Arkanis as part of Project Harvester.

As a result, the Jedi have all but ceased to exist, and they have faded even in the minds of the galaxy’s citizens, many of whom now view the Force as some “hokey religion.” But there are still some who can feel the Force and draw upon its strength. Some still seek to use its power to defend themselves and those around them. Others choose to wield the Force like a weapon that they can direct at their enemies. And when there are rumors leading toward an artifact that may enhance these individuals’ abilities to use the Force, you’ll find three of the most powerful of them ready to chase after those leads among the streets of Coruscant.

Together, these Ally and Villain Packs introduce three highly detailed figures for Maul, Emperor Palpatine, and Ahsoka Tano that you can use to replace their tokens in your Heart of the Empire campaign. Plus, they introduce brand-new missions for your campaign games and skirmishes, plus all the Deployment cards, Command cards, and Agenda cards you need to explore new Force-centered tactics in every mode of play.
