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 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!
