Many of you have taken that challenge and fought many a valiant battle across the many systems to either stop the evil Empire or stamp out the rebellion and restore order to the galaxy. Now you are looking to add more to your games or even more players to join in on the fun.
According to FFG…
Inspired largely by the characters and events of Rogue One, Rise of the Empire introduces a plethora of new heroes, villains, starships, troopers, and vehicles from that film, alongside other characters, ships, and events from Star Wars: Rebels and the classic trilogy, plus new missions that add more drama and intrigue to your games.
You can send Jyn Erso and Cassian Andor to recover the Death Star plans. You can confuse Imperials with false orders and assaults behind enemy lines. You can command Director Krennic and his finest death troopers. And you can set traps for the Rebel pilots and soldiers, luring them away from their base and into massive battles with more fully cinematic combat and tactics.
Even Jabba the Hutt makes an appearance, offering his services to the Empire and feeding his prisoners to the Sarlaac.
Altogether, Rise of the Empire enhances your games with eight new leaders, thirty-six plastic miniatures, five target markers, two attachment rings, three new dice, and more than one-hundred new cards. You’ll find U-wings, TIE Strikers, Nebulon-B frigates, and the Interdictor.
You’ll gain new ways of subverting your opponent’s plans, and you’ll discover a whole new chapter in your ongoing Galactic Civil War!
It promises amazing fun and a new sense of adventure. I am looking forward to this new expansion it and it will be available in the forth quarter of this year. Maybe we will get a sneak peak at Gen Con this year. Remember, May the Force be with you!
"This expansion promises to open up an entirely new world and add some of the story lines from some of the new movies..."
