According to the press release, Star Wars: Unlimited is going to be a fast-paced and dynamic game that is "both easy to learn and strategically deep". I feel like that's a phrase that gets uttered by all designers when it comes to games nowadays. It has been in development for three years and there will be three sets of cards produced per year once the game goes into production.

Organised play is also going to play a big part in the life cycle of the game and there is going to be a focus on weekly store events and big tournaments at large events. The team are looking to get all manner of folk interested in the game, from casual collectors to hardcore competitors.

One of the things that has captured my attention is the new artwork they have produced. I like the look of the piece they shared as part of the announcement and if the rest of the game features pieces like that, I can see it looking very stylish indeed. As this is a trading card game, there are also going to be alternate cards featuring different treatments and visual design cues.

The proof will be in the pudding when it comes to Star Was: Unlimited but now we've come out of the dark times of the last few years, it makes sense to try and get folks back to the tabletop with card games being played weekly in stores.

Is a new trading card game the way to go? I'm not so sure. We don't have news on how much Star Wars: Unlimited is going to cost and such yet but that could well be the killer. It seems a real shame that they're not revisiting Star Wars: Destiny as that was a stellar game and I absolutely loved the way they crafted that. "No gimmicks" seems to be the mantra of Unlimited though which could end up being a very good thing indeed in terms of getting the game out to customers.

Will you be keeping an eye on Star Wars: Unlimited?
