Announcing the Epic Battles Multiplayer Expansion for X-Wing

July 23, 2019

Whether fought between the Galactic Empire and Rebel Alliance, the Resistance and the First Order, or the Galactic Republic and the Separatist Alliance, the Star Wars saga is defined by massive space battles that pit groups of heavily-armed warships and dozens of smaller starfighters against one another. Soon, you’ll have the chance to enter these battles and test your mettle in some of the most intense and chaotic space battles in the Star Wars galaxy.

Fantasy Flight Games is happy to announce the Epic Battles Multiplayer Expansion for Star Wars™: X-Wing! Epic Battles introduces a totally new way to play X-Wing, inviting two to eight players to engage in epic multiplayer battles as they command massive fleets in large-scale games that evoke iconic Star Wars scenes.

Featuring eleven cinematic scenarios—from team games to chaotic, eight-player, free-for-all battles—Epic Battles broadens the possibilities of X-Wing, creating an exciting new experience for players of all skill levels. In addition to the scenarios and rules for playing with more than two players, Epic Battles also introduces wings, an exciting new way for players to control multiple ships in formation using only a single maneuver dial. Wings work particularly well when flying in conjunction with huge ships, the largest class of ships available in X-Wing.

No matter if you’re going head-to-head with a single opponent or coordinating your attacks with a teammate, the new game modes you find in Epic Battles create an exciting new X-Wing experience. Read on for more of what to expect in the Epic Battles Multiplayer Expansion!

Cost of Greed Book For Infinity RPG Now Available

June 29, 2019

A chance discovery on Paradiso leads to the uncovering of a VoodooTech smuggling ring, with the clues leading to an intelligence agency or corporation. Follow the rabbit hole, follow the money, and the trail of breadcrumbs may soon provide clues to a plot that could put the whole Human Sphere at risk.

Cost of Greed is a mini campaign of five non-linear adventures that provide the characters with a chance to meet, work alongside, and challenge the key characters from Corvus Belli’s Dire Foes Missions packs 1-5.

First Domino: Follow the trail of a smuggling ring trafficking VoodooTech from Paradiso to the crowded streets of Yinquan. Will the tight-lipped Yanjing be involved or perhaps the shady MagnaObra corporation?

Ice and Fire: Seeking clues to the architect and purpose of the smuggling ring, the characters need to embrace the icy cold of Svarthelma to find the answers they seek.

Quantronic Noise: A hacking cell operating from an enclave on Bakunin are a key factor in the operation. Their ability to manipulate the characters’ patinas, however, may flip the Wilderness of Mirrors on its head, creating enemies of both civilians and former friends.

Hot Sands: Chasing an exec for the intel she’s hiding will lead the characters into a fight to survive on the Silk Road, but her enemies could prove more overwhelming than they bargained for.

The Black Box: With the war on Paradiso itself under threat, and the safety of the Human Sphere at stake, infiltrating the operational centre of the cabal responsible could turn disaster into victory.
