Fantasy Flight Games continue to expand upon the world of Star Wars: Imperial Assault with The Bespin Gambit which looks like it’s going to be taking the struggle against The Empire to Cloud City where things are getting dangerous…
“In The Bespin Gambit, you’ll find a wealth of new content to take your campaigns and skirmishes into the ritzy hotels and industrial underworks of Cloud City. Iconic characters like Bossk and Lando Calrissian join the game for the first time, gorgeous new map tiles portray some of the most memorable Cloud City locations, while new companions and a new condition change the flow every game.”
Inside here you get two new Heroes, one new Imperial Class, new items, a new mini-campaign which is always awesome, and a focus on Spy characters. There are also going to be more character packs for you to pick up which help expand on those cardboard tokens you see in the expansion above.
Model-wise the characters are looking awesome and we have both Davith Else who will act as a new Jedi character alongside Murne Rin spying behind the scenes.
I talked about this during the Awards but I think one of the big draws to Imperial Assault, as well as it being Star Wars, is that they have created so many more original characters to fit into the background. It would feel somewhat boring to just be playing the same movie characters over and over again so this gives you a sense or things being your own.
What do you think?
