Fantasy Flight Announces Four Resistance Expansions of Wave II for X-Wing Second Edition

Aug 10, 2018

The Empire may be gone, but its shadow still looms large across the galaxy. As X-Wing™ Second Edition  ushers in a new era of starfighter combat in the Star Wars galaxy, the pilots of the Resistance aim to rekindle hope as they carry on the legacy of the Rebel Alliance.

Fantasy Flight Games is happy to announce four Resistance expansion packs of Wave II for X-Wing Second Edition;

Carrying on the torch first lit by the Rebellion against the Empire, the Resistance remains ever vigilant in its fight to maintain peace throughout the galaxy. With these expansions, you’re invited to join a new generation of heroes and experience the intense space combat seen in The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi from behind the controls of these upgraded versions of iconic ships.

Fantasy Flight Previews Upcoming Slave 1 Expansion Pack

July 3, 2018

Whenever there is a sizeable bounty to be collected anywhere across the galaxy, Boba Fett will assuredly be on the hunt in his signature ship, Slave I. A heavily modified Firespray-class patrol craft, the ship belonging to the most infamous bounty hunter in the Star Wars galaxy is sure to strike fear in anyone with a price on their head. Later this year, you’ll have the chance to add this notorious craft to your Scum and Villainy squadrons from the beginning of X-Wing™ Second Edition with the Slave I Expansion Pack.

While the pilots of the Empire and Rebellion fly in the name of their beliefs, Scum pilots have little concern for political conflicts. Rather than declare allegiance to one side or another, they are only concerned with one thing: profit, no matter how it’s obtained. And no one in the galaxy is better at tracking down their quarry and collecting the reward than the infamous Boba Fett.

The Slave I Expansion Pack includes a beautifully pre-painted ship miniature along with a maneuver dial and all the ship cards and upgrade cards you need to supplement your squadron with this versatile ship. In addition, the Slave I Expansion Pack contains a few entirely new cards that have never before appeared in the game’s first edition. These new cards and associated punchboard are included in the Scum and Villainy Conversion Kit for the benefit of veteran players!

Saw’s Renegades and TIE Reaper Available for Star Wars X-Wing

June 26, 2018

The Death Star is one step closer to being fully operational and the Rebel Alliance must act quickly to counter this menace before the Empire tightens its grip on more star systems. X-Wing™ Wave XIV—the Saw’s Renegades Expansion Pack and the TIE Reaper Expansion Packare available now from Fantasy Flight Games!

These expansion packs take you back to the very beginning of the Galactic Civil War, putting you directly in the desperate struggle over the plans to the Death Star. On one side, you can join up with Saw Gerrera and his partisans to take whatever actions you deem necessary to stop the spread of Empire. On the other, you could patrol the skies over Scarif in a TIE reaper, giving even the most experienced Rebel pilots pause before entering the fray.

No matter which side you choose, these expansion packs will help you usher in the next chapter of fast-paced space battles in the Star Wars galaxy with content from X-Wing Second Edition. Both the Saw’s Renegades Expansion Pack and the TIE Reaper Expansion Pack contain everything you need to convert their ships to second edition, giving you the opportunity to experience their raw power from launch.

Lando’s Millennium Falcon Comes to X-Wing 2nd Edition

June 16, 2018

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the Lando’s Millennium Falcon Expansion Pack for X-Wing Second Edition! This expansion pack will join the rest of Wave I for X-Wing Second Edition, releasing on September 13th, 2018!

Long before Han Solo owned the Millennium Falcon and made his own brand of special modifications to the ship, it belonged to infamous gambler and smuggler Lando Calrissian. With the recent release of Solo: A Star Wars Story, we finally got to witness some of the Millennium Falcon’s early exploits and see how it inevitably came into Han Solo’s possession. Soon, you’ll have the opportunity to experience this classic ship in an all-new way during your games of X-Wing™ Second Edition.

Star Wars X-Wing 2nd Edition Announced

May 2, 2018

Fantasy Flight Games announced the next evolution of your interstellar dogfights: X-Wing™ Second Edition, a game of daring space combat for two players! With three fully assembled and beautifully pre-painted ships, and all the cards, movement tools, tokens, and dice that you need to get flying with the second edition, the X-Wing Second Edition Core Set is the perfect way to introduce yourself to the new mechanics or experience X-Wing for the first time.

Since its release, X-Wing Miniatures Game has invited you to enter the Star Wars galaxy and play out your own battles with some of the series’ most iconic starfighters. Leading custom-built squadrons into fast-paced, high-stakes battles, you’ve flown with the Galactic Empire, the Rebel Alliance, and the Scum and Villainy of the galaxy in countless battles. You’ve modified your ships for every scrap of speed, maneuverability, and firepower. Now, it’s time for a new chapter in your X-Wing journey.

While the X-Wing Second Edition Core Set provides everything you need to get started with your first space battles in the new edition, it isn’t all that will be on offer. You can bring your full collection of first edition ships into the new edition with Conversion Kits for the Galactic Empire, Rebel Alliance, and Scum and Villainy. What’s more, a full hangar bay of expansions will launch alongside the Core Set, giving you plenty of options for creating your squadrons and customizing your X-Wing Second Edition experience.

Why Second Edition?

Since 2012 and the release of the game, X-Wing Miniatures Game has grown and expanded to become a massive bestseller. Fourteen waves and fifty-eight distinct starships provided a massive library of ships and tactical possibilities, giving you the chance to field hundreds of unique squadrons in their space battles across the Star Wars saga.

Despite the massive success of the game’s first edition, we believe that by advancing the game to a second edition, X-Wing can offer an even better experience! There are four primary places where we believe X-Wing Second Edition will offer a renewed and improved experience:

  • With X-Wing Second Edition, gameplay has been refined across the board, implementing minor tweaks and changes to improve the game’s flow, clean up interactions, and refocus the game on the physical act of flying starships.

  • The Force is a crucial part of the Star Wars galaxy that has historically played a smaller role in the game of X-Wing. With the release of X-Wing Second Edition, we have the chance to implement the Force as an important part of the game, affecting how you fly your ships and the choices that you make in the heat of battle. For more information about the Force and how it plays out in your games of X-Wing, just keep reading!

  • Faction identities have been strengthened in X-Wing Second Edition, giving each faction more unique tactics and strategies. Flying a squadron of Scum and Villainy starships should feel very different from flying an Imperial squadron, and with the game’s second edition, those differences are more present than ever before. What’s more, the First Order and Resistance have been reformed into their own distinct factions, separate from the Rebel Alliance and Galactic Empire, with their own themes, strengths, and weaknesses.

  • An official X-Wing squad builder app / website will be implemented, bringing a new level of dynamic play to Organized Play and casual games alike. This X-Wing squad builder gives players an easy way to assemble their squadrons and manage their collection, and it also allows the Organized Play team to explore dozens of new possibilities with alternate formats for the game. The point cost of ships and upgrades and the upgrade slots available to ships can be adjusted for the course of a single event, a tournament series, or an entire season of the game. Ultimately, the X-Wing squad builder app creates dynamic and constantly evolving Organized Play unlike anything that was possible before.

  • Saw’s Renegades Expansion Pack
  • TIE Reaper Expansion Pack

With these two new expansion packs, you’re drawn directly into the breakneck starfighter conflicts of Rogue One and the beginning of the Galactic Civil War. You may fly with Saw and his partisans, willing to fight for freedom from the Empire at any cost. Or, you may join up with the Galactic Empire and ferry your elite troops into combat in a TIE reaper. No matter which side you support, the starships and upgrades of X-Wing Wave XIV take you into frantic battles for the survival of the Rebellion and the destruction of the Empire’s ultimate weapon.

You can pre-order your own copies of the Saw’s Renegades Expansion Pack and the TIE Reaper Expansion Pack at your local retailer or online from Fantasy Flight Games.

Pirates, bounty hunters, crime lords, junk dealers, Black Sun assassins, con artists, and mercenaries of all varieties—these are the galaxy’s Scum and Villainy.
