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.

Allies of Necessity, the first Force Pack in the Alliances cycle for Star Wars: The Card Game, is now available from Fantasy Flight Games

These affiliation cards don’t just encourage the exploration of new deck archetypes; they reward your exploration with immeasurable power.

While the Force Pack’s eight new objective sets (two copies each of four different sets) each suggest different ways you might explore alliances between your side’s affiliations, these affiliation cards actually mandate those alliances. Then they offer you extra card draw, extra resources, or extra actions.
