FFG Announces Wave XI for Star Wars X-Wing!

swx64-66_titleimage

March 16, 2017

From the Core Worlds to Kashyyyk and beyond, the Force connects all living things and binds them together. Pirates, Imperial cadets, and Wookiees. No matter who they are or where they go, they’re all connected by the Force. They’re all drawn together by the eternal struggles between the dark side and the light…

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the upcoming release of three new X-Wing™ starship expansions!

  • Auzituck Gunship Expansion Pack
  • Scurrg H-6 Bomber Expansion Pack
  • TIE Aggressor Expansion Pack

In the Star Wars galaxy, seemingly minor events can alter the fates of countless worlds. A Tatooine moisture farmer purchases a pair of droids. A freighter pilot learns that his YT-1300’s negative power coupling needs to be replaced. A hungry Wookiee reaches for a dead animal skewered on a wooden stake…

Who would have expected the moisture farmer’s nephew would become a powerful Jedi? Or that the repairs to Han Solo’s Millennium Falcon would draw the attentions of an infamous bounty hunter, a crime lord, and even the Dark Lord of the Sith? What would have happened to the Rebellion if Chewie and his Rebel allies hadn’t befriended the Ewoks on Endor?

The Star Wars galaxy is full of these little twists of fate. The Galactic Civil War was shaped by them. And you’ll soon have your chance to pursue more of these twists in your games of X-Wing.

With its trio of ships, Wave XI follows these twists toward a host of explosive new possibilities—all nestled comfortably within the game’s existing mechanics. High-tech bombers. Fighters capable of filling highly specialized roles. Double-slotted upgrades. Unlimited ordnance. And a wealth of abilities that encourage dynamic and interactive new ways to fly!

Wave VI Announced for Star Wars Armada

March 14th, 2017

When the battles of Star Wars™: Armada start getting heated, shields begin to fail, and hulls creak and groan under the strain of repeated battering. It’s at times like these that a fleet admiral’s cunning may prove the difference between victory and a resounding defeat…

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the sixth wave of Armada expansions!

Light on ships, but heavy on new ideas, Armada Wave VI features two expansions—the Imperial Light Carrier Expansion Pack and the Hammerhead Corvettes Expansion Pack. Inspired by Star Wars Rebels and Rogue One, the expansions give us three new ships—one Quasar Fire-class cruiser-carrier and two Hammerhead corvettes. While these are solid ships, they are by no means the biggest and baddest battleships you’ll find in the Star Wars galaxy, but if you overlook the threats they pose? You do so at your peril.

The Galactic Empire’s iron grip seems insurmountable. The most powerful war machines the galaxy has ever seen are opposed only by a relatively small number of courageous souls.

Blasters and bombs, starfighters and secret bases, repurposed datapads and rebuilt droids—Engineers transform the noble ideals of the Rebellion into action with every turn of the spanner.

Fantasy Flight Games is excited to announce its next release for the Star Wars™: Age of Rebellion Roleplaying Game™. Fully Operational, the career sourcebook for Engineers, expands the resources available to players and gamemasters alike with new talent specializations, species, potent Signature Abilities, gear, and campaign enhancements perfect for those with a proclivity for tinkering, repairing, and constructing.

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce Allies of Necessity, the first Force Pack in the Alliances cycle for Star Wars™: The Card Game!

If anything defines the Star Wars saga more than the lightsaber duels, blaster firefights, and epic space battles, it’s the friendships that emerge out of hardship and necessity.

Within the new Alliances cycle, you gain plenty of incentives to bring multiple affiliations together. While multi-affiliation decks have always been a possibility in Star Wars: The Card Game, Allies of Necessity offers more tools to help you than ever before—starting with new affiliation cards, which offer new deckbuilding requirements and special abilities. What’s more, you’ll find iconic characters from Rogue One, Star Wars Rebels, and the Darth Vader comics throughout the cycle: in fact, this first Force Pack includes Doctor Aphra, Director Krennic, Captain Cassian Andor, and Jyn Erso. 

With eight new objective sets (two copies each of four distinct sets), and twelve brand-new affiliation cards (two for each affiliation), Allies of Necessity promises to change your games like never before!
