Rise of the Empire Expansion for Star Wars: Rebellion Available

Sept 11, 2017

It is a dark time for the galaxy. The Old Republic is dead. In its place, the Galactic Empire has seized control of the galaxy, subjugating worlds with unprecedented speed and ruthlessness. Every day, the Imperial flag spreads to new worlds. And worst of all, there are rumors that the Emperor has been developing a new superweapon, one with the power to destroy whole planets.

What do these rumors mean? Is this the death of freedom? Or is it the first spark of a war that will shake the galaxy? The time has come for you to decide.

The Rise of the Empire expansion for Star Wars: Rebellion is now available from Fantasy Flight Games!

Largely inspired by the characters and events of Rogue One: A Star Wars StoryRise of the Empire is an expansion for Star Wars: Rebellion that adds new depth and intrigue to the game’s epic conflicts between the tyrannical Galactic Empire and rag-tag Rebel Alliance.

With its wealth of new heroes, villains, starships, troopers, and vehicles—as well as its new rules for Cinematic Combat—Rise of the Empire allows you to send Jyn Erso and Cassian Andor to recover the Death Star plans. As the Imperial player, you can seize command of Director Krennic and his finest death troopers, then set traps for the Rebel pilots and soldiers, luring them away from their base and into massive battles. You’ll even find new characters and units from other Star Wars materials, as the Empire gains access to Admiral Motti and the Interdictor. Even Jabba the Hutt makes an appearance, feeding his prisoners to the Sarlaac.

Star Wars Rebellion available now!

April 2nd, 2016

Experience the thrills, heroics, and dramatic tension of the original Star Wars trilogy. Deploy fleets of Star Destroyers, battalions of AT-AT Walkers, and Stormtroopers. Conduct secret missions in the heart of enemy territory. Battle for the fate of the galaxy like never before…

Star Wars™: Rebellion is now available from Fantasy Flight Games!

In Star Wars: Rebellion, you and up to three friends seize control of the entire Galactic Empire and the fledgling Rebel Alliance, only to engage in an epic series of conflicts that will ultimately determine the fate of the galaxy.

At the center of these struggles, you have a tense game of cat-and-mouse as the Empire searches for the location of the Rebellion’s hidden base, intending to deploy there in force and end the Rebellion with one decisive battle. The Rebellion, meanwhile, must deflect the Empire’s attention and fleet movements away from its hidden base in order to buy time. It must then use this time to strike against the Empire through covert missions and guerilla warfare; each of its successes exposes the Empire’s weaknesses and moves the galaxy one step closer to open revolt.

Deeply inspired by the classic trilogy, these asymmetrical struggles burst with Star Wars flavor at every turn. You can enjoy massive fleet battles. AT-AT Walkers can march against Rebel emplacements. Mon Mothma may convince the galaxy’s citizens to join the Rebel Alliance; Darth Vader may cow them into quiet submission. As you wage your Galactic Civil War, you will battle over planetary systems, compete for their resources, and make desperate runs at secret missions that can turn the game on its head.
