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!

Fantasy Flight Previews Imperial Death Troopers for Star Wars: Legion

March 24, 2019

With nearly limitless resources at its disposal, the Galactic Empire is capable of creating all kinds of unimaginable weapons. But not every problem can be eliminated with a single blast from the Death Star’s immense superlaser. Some missions require a more delicate touch. When high-ranking Imperial officers like Director Orson Krennic need a scalpel instead of a cudgel, they turn to the Imperial Death Troopers.

Trained in multiple forms of combat and proficient at erasing their involvement from operations, these elite soldiers are a terrifying sight to anyone unfortunate enough to stand in their way.

You’ll soon be able to have your own squads of Death Troopers do your bidding on the battlefields of the Galactic Civil War with the Imperial Death Troopers Unit Expansion for Star Wars™: Legion from Fantasy Flight Games.

Within this expansion, you’ll find six unique, highly detailed, unpainted Imperial Death Trooper miniatures for you to add to your collection, including four troopers prepared to carry out any mission with their E-11D blaster rifles. Meanwhile, the Death Trooper designated DT-F16 and a DLT-19D Trooper can bring even more firepower to the unit. Finally, you can make full use of all your Death Troopers’ training with eight upgrade cards that give them access to more gear and comms equipment.
